SZABIST's unjust treatment puts student career in jeopardy
Karachi: A scholarship holder of Sindh government's endowment fund was
dismissed from a privately-run institute of higher education before the
completion of his degree.
The student claims that he was targeted for
sending his complaint regarding theft of his cellular phones from the institute
to the Chief Justice of Supreme Court and other highly placed authorities. The
student in question, Imran Khan Sial said that on October 14, he was dismissed
as a student by Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology
(SZABIST) when he was only a few weeks away from completing his MBA degree
programme. He said that his only fault was that he approached the Chief Justice
of Pakistan and other superior authorities against what he termed sheer apathy
of the institute's administration to resolve the pressing problems of the
Sial said that three precious cellular phone sets were stolen
from his bag, at the SZABIST Karachi campus on September 26. One belonged to him
while the other two belonged to his two brothers. Due to the subsequent inaction
of the institute's disciplinary committee to provide suitable compensation for
the loss of cell phones, he was compelled to send his complaint to the Chief
Justice of Pakistan and others for getting justice.
He wrote in his
complaint to the Chief Justice of Pakistan and other authorities: "Before this
several students have lost their precious laptops, mobile phone sets, USB sticks
etc but unfortunately nobody takes the notice of these complaints at SZABIST and
as a result the culprits are encouraged and such kind of incidents are on a
Other than the Chief Justice, Sial sent his complaint
to the chairman and project-director, SZABIST, Chief Justice of Sindh High
Court, Chairman Higher Education Commission, Federal and Sindh education
ministers, chairman Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), Zonal director
PTA, CPLC chief, Federal and Sindh Ombudsmen, and Senate Standing Committee on
Information and Broadcasting.
Sial said he was informed by certain
members of the institute's disciplinary committee that by sending his complaint
to Chief Justice of Pakistan about the institute he had diminished the chances
of President SZABIST Senator, Dr Javaid R Laghari from becoming the new chairman
of the Higher Education Commission (HEC). "When I was informed that writing to
the Chief Justice of Pakistan will put my institute and its president in an
unfavourable light, and likely initiate a suo moto proceeding against them, I
duly apologised to the authorities of the institute and held out the assurance
that I will not correspond with the Chief Justice again. But even then I got
debarred from continuing my studies at the institute," he said.
institute's authorities, on the other hand, said that Sial's dismissal from the
institute had become inevitable due to his poor academic performance owing to
"consistent failures in semester examinations and the lack of attendance in his
MBA classes." Sial said that the dismissal notice served to him on October 14
contained three charges including misconduct, misbehaving, and poor academic
performance. Then after one day, another dismissal letter was sent to him adding
the allegation of 'Non-cooperation' in the charge-sheet against him, he
"For all these charges I should have been served show-cause notices
in advance to give me the due opportunity to clarify my position on the issue.
For poor academic performance, I should have received probation letters in the
previous semesters but neither of the two happened and all of a sudden I was
dismissed from the institute," said Sial.
"I personally saw four
probation letters in Sial's file and for one thing I'm quite sure that given his
poor performance he would be unable to complete his MBA degree in the next two
years," said Deputy-Director SZABIST, Azra Maqsood. She said that giving Sial
the rare endowment fund scholarship by the Sindh government was a complete waste
and he had usurped the right to higher education of a more deserving and
eligible student from the underprivileged class of the province.
the charge that Sial was dismissed as he had written to the Chief Justice of
Pakistan, Azra said that sending a complaint to the chief justice was a
fundamental right of every citizen and no person or institute including the
SZABIST could discourage anybody from doing so. "SZABIST is a responsible
institute being governed through strict and well defined rules and regulations
and any disciplinary action against a student is taken after a thorough process
and all legal needs are fulfilled," said Azra. She added that no student can
ever be debarred from SZABIST merely for writing to the Chief
Karim Bux Sirohi, who recently retired as Sindh Special
Secretary Education, said that surely a beneficiary of the Endowment fund
scholarship of the provincial education department has to show consistent
performance in academics to continue to receive scholarship in every semester of
Meanwhile, in a statement Manager External Affairs
SZABIST, Anwarul Haq said that Sial was dismissed from SZABIST due to poor
academic performance and as per SZABIST academic guidelines. All other
allegations are false, fabricated and with mala fide intent to malign an
institution and its faculty.
Mohammad Khan Sial, father of Imran Sial
who had retired from the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), said that his
son should be given the due right of appeal at the institute against the
decision and findings of SZABIST disciplinary committee. The News
