Illegal residents in PU hostels
Lahore: The Punjab University (PU) administration has pointed out as many as 25 "illegal occupants" of the Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) in hostels, but has not been able to evict them so far, officials said on Friday.
PU Hall Council Chairman Dr Muhammad Akhtar accepted that they had marked the IJT activists and also requested police to help them vacate hostels from these "illegal residents".
Akhtar confirmed the presence of activists in the hostels and said PU administration was avoiding a crackdown on them, as it would disturb the peaceful environment of the university. He said they had handed over a list of the illegal residents to all hostel wardens. He said, "We are doing our best to keep these 'illegal elements' at bay. We also requested the Muslim Town police to take action, but cops are not cooperating. Police told us to hold dialogue with these elements."
He said the university mosque was hub of the "illegal elements", where they claimed to 'spread' Islam.
Sources on campus said PU administration had increased security on the campus and around the hostels, adding that new security guards had also been hired. They said "illegal occupants" could be divided into two categories – illegal IJT activists and relatives of students. Muhammad Ikram, an international relations student, said, "IJT activists 'prowl' on campus. They beat up students and canteen staff and are also trying to impose their 'own brand' of Islam on students. Due to the current wave of terrorism we feel insecure in presence of these 'illegal elements'."
Wahdat Road Deputy Superintendent of Police Naveed Arshad said they had arrested several IJT activists on the request of the PU administration. He said, "If there is a need of a 'grand operation' than the PU vice-chancellor should inform us."
PU IJT Nazim Qaiser Sharif said they were against the "illegal occupants", adding, "IJT workers are not involved in illegal activities. Our 90 students were expelled in the past and they are staying in hostels to peruse their cases." Daily times
Call to cut expenses
Lahore: Punjab University (PU) Economics Department's Qazi Fareed Memorial Society organised a seminar-cum-essay competition on "Austerity Economy" at the department's auditorium on Friday.
Interestingly all the students in their essays urged the government to cut its unnecessary expenses and enormous perks and privileges in order to get national economy out of crisis. As many as 63 students participated in the competition and, in the final round, eight students read their essays.
Sadia Riaz grabbed the first position and won a prize of Rs 50,000 while Javaria Butt and Anwar-ul-Haq won second and third positions and got Rs 30,000 and Rs 20,000 cash prizes respectively.
Addressing the students, PU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran said the competition was very productive and informative. He said economics always dominated the world and Pakistan needed experts in this field. He said students could learn a lot through such kind of activities. He also announced revival of Abn-e-Khaldoom Seminar in the department. The seminar had been a tradition of the department but it was not being organised for the last few years.
He also congratulated the society chairman on organising the competition on such an important issue. Principal Hailey College of Banking and Finance Prof Dr Khawaja Amjad Saeed gave the concepts of "Austerity as a way of life" and "Prosperity through austerity". By quoting example of leaders of various countries, he said our government as well as individuals needed to cut down unnecessary expenses and to adopt simplicity in life style. Qazi Hamayun Fareed, Chairman Qazi Fareed Memorial Society who is also Honorary Consul General of Bangladesh, said his father late Prof Qazi Muhammad Fareed, a renowned economist, had advocated his theory and suggested to the government of Pakistan in the late 1960's that for the growth of economic survival of Pakistan, austerity culture was a pre-requisite.
This had to be started from the top to cover the entire government/civil society, he said unfortunately this could not happen. He further said considering the present economic crisis, he had set up "Qazi Muhammad Fareed Memorial Society" at the PU Department of Economics with the help of Dr Hafeez-ur-Rehman, Chairman Department of Economics and supported by Vice-Chancellor Dr Mujahid Kamran. "The aim of this society is to organise such seminars which make people aware of advantage of austerity economy", he added. Former PU VC Dr Rafique, teachers and a large number of students were present. The news
Teacher broke 4th grader's arm for 'forgetting Iqbal'
Lahore: A female teacher of a private school thrashed Muhammad Jahanzeb, a fourth grade student when he was unable to explain a poem by Allama Iqbal, causing multiple fractures in his arm.
The student fainted after the beating, and was brought to General Hospital where doctors confirmed the fracture. Jahanzeb said that over his failure to explain the meaning of a verse of Iqbal's poem 'Cow and Goat', his teacher beat him with a stick.
Muhammad Anwer, father of the student said that after getting the news of his son's beating, he rushed to the hospital where doctors told him that Jahanzeb had a fractured arm and fingers. He said that he visited the principal of the school, who told him that the teacher was right in beating the student. Anwer said the principal insulted him, and told him that they know best how to teach children.
He said the incident had frightened his wife, who was not willing to send Jahanzeb to school anymore. Jahanzeb said that he was a good student, and just because he could not explain one verse of the poem the teacher beat him. He said that parents of other students in his class have complained against the teacher several times, as she is the only one who beats students so mercilessly. Syed Shabbir Shah, the owner of the school, said he would inquire into the matter, and then take action against the teacher.
The law manager of the Society for Protection of Rights of the Child (SPARC) said that very few parents took legal action against corporal punishment, but in such cases where a student gets a fracture, a case could be registered under Section 337 of the Pakistan Penal Code.
The Punjab government in Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi's era had banned corporal punishment at government schools across the province through an executive order, announcing stern action against teachers not complying with the orders. adnan lodhi. Daily times
