Scant knowledge of English
Karachi: A trend of rote-learning, and some students' habit of regurgitating pre-learned answers which may or may not be related to the actual questions asked in the exam is responsible for the delay in the submission of results of the B.A (Optional) English paper by the lecturer at the University of Karachi (KU) English department to the university's examinations department, sources informed.

The answer scripts of the Optional English paper, according to a teacher from the department, were checked by a lecturer, Ibtesam Afreen, and submitted to the examinations department through the proper channel. The pass percentage was very low, because the students had scant knowledge of basic English, and their answers were completely wrong.

After a while, Afreen was summoned by a high-ranking official of the Examinations Department and asked to increase the marks of some candidates; she declined. Annoyed, the official sent a request to KU Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof. Dr Pirzada Qasim, requesting him to ask the English department to increase the marks of the students because the pass percentage was extremely low. The VC directed the former chairman of the department, Prof. Kaleem Raza Khan, to recheck the scripts and report the finding to him.

Prof. Khan checked the copies and found that Afreen had checked the copy correctly and there was no need to increase any marks. In his reply to the VC, Prof. Khan mentioned this fact and also related his observations about the answers from the students. He informed the VC that in the preceding year and for the last six years the examiners were very lenient in marking. The same hue and cry had ensued when another teacher from the English department had checked the papers. Prof. Khan said that his department was striving to maintain a high standard of English Literature education, and will not pass the students for writing 'something' in a good handwriting.

Sources informed that most of these candidates had "memorised answers to 'possible' exam questions" and even though their expected questions were nowhere to be found in the paper, they went ahead and wrote the answers that they had learnt. Moreover, instead of providing critical analysis of a poem or passage, students paraphrased, it without showing any understanding of it.

Another source confided that English Optional was taught in eight colleges of Karachi and its marks are helpful in getting wattage for admission in MA (Previous) class at the Department of English. "We have some students who sneaked into our department through these marks (English Optional) but their knowledge of English was rudimentary. They are not fit to be studying English Literature," he said angrily. The news

SMIC faculty to protest KCCI proposal
Karachi: The Sindh Madressatul Islam College (SMIC) faculty will protest if the college is commercialised, the SMIC administration said on Wednesday, in response to news items regarding the "adoption" of the college by the Karachi Chambers of Commerce and Industry (KCCI).

The Quaid's alma mater has played a historic role in modern education for the past 124 years, they said. The SMIC faculty members have also requested the President and the Prime Minister of Pakistan to take notice of such moves.

The SMIC administration said that the institution was upgraded to the level of college in 1943 by its old alumnus, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. Later, this status was "snatched" from it, they said. It was reinstated to the level of college in 1994 because of the efforts of its principal Dr Mohammad Ali Shaikh, the SMIC administration said.

In 1974, the then-prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto transferred control of the SMI from the Sindh government to the federal education ministry, on the grounds that the SMI was considered a national heritage.

Today, about 1,600 male and female students are study at the SMIC, from class one to intermediate. The institute has three modern computer laboratories, science laboratories, a Jinnah Museum, the Hassanally Effendi Library, a fine arts gallery, and other modern facilities, and is "considered one of the best public sector institutions of the country," they further said.

The KCCI should first make non-functional schools operational, if it wishes to play any role in the education sector in Sindh, the SMIC administration said, adding that there are around 1,300 non-functional schools in Pakistan; 700 of them are in Sindh alone. The KCCI can also set up new institutions in the outskirts of Karachi, instead of "trying to deface the historic institution" by "trying to convert it into a commercial complex," they said.

College student shot dead by robbers
Karachi: A BCom student were gunned down on Wednesday allegedly by bandits when the victim resisted robbery attempt, police officials and witnesses said. The first incident took place near Kamran Chowrangi in the Gulistan-i-Jauhar area in the small hours of Wednesday, when a young student was killed while chasing three alleged bandits who had snatched a mobile phone from his teenaged nephew.

Though the exact reason behind the murder of 20-year-old Amjad Hussain remained mysterious for hours as the Gulistan-i-Jauhar police insisted that it was the result of a personal enmity, the factual position emerged when the family of the victim came up with the incident's details.

"My 14-year-old nephew was returning home after visiting an area shop," Jameel Hussain, the victim's elder brother said. "When he was very close to home some three persons riding two motorbikes pulled up next to him and relieved him of his mobile phone at gunpoint. The boy rushed into the house and broke the news to his maternal uncle and my younger brother, Amjad."

As Amjad hurried out of home, said Mr Hussain, he saw all the three bandits at the corner of the street. He ran after them and finally caught up with them. "One of the bandits, Abbas, is well known in the area for his criminal activities and my brother recognised him," he said. "After an exchange of hot words, Abbas opened fire on my brother with his TT pistol. My nephew was also there, who kept pleading with his uncle to return home and not to quarrel with the bandits, but after the firing the boy ran back home and narrated the story."

Amjad, who died on the spot after sustaining four bullets in his chest and abdomen, was a BCom (final) student of the National College. His body was taken to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, and after medico-legal formalities, the Gulistan-i-Jauhar police registered a case (FIR 476/2009) under Sections 302 (premeditated murder) and 212 (harbouring offender) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) against Abbas on the complaint of Jameel Hussain, the victim's elder brother.
