Admissions of Pakistani students in foreign educational institutions
Lahore: Members of the Provincial Assembly (MPAs) on Wednesday demanded that students should not be stopped from going abroad after getting admission in educational institutions that do not exist, because that helps them to obtain visas, earn a living and benefit their country. MPA Sheikh Allaudin presented an adjournment motion regarding the illegal arrests of Pakistani students made by the British police on behalf of the British government. It stated that a number of foreign universities and colleges had put up stalls in hotels to attract innocent people to obtain admissions. It stated that a foreign newspaper had revealed that the British Home Affairs Department had allowed such nonexistent institutions to enroll students and 100 Pakistani students were admitted in a college in Manchester that did not exist. The motion said it was the negligence of the Education Department for allowing illegal colleges and universities to set up seminars and stalls. In reply to Allaudin's statement, Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the issue was correct, but this issue should not be highlighted unnecessarily because it concerned the future of many Pakistanis. He said Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik visited Britain regarding the matter and negotiations were going on. He said such law could not be made at a provincial level and legislation was required on a national level. Daily times
Stay against shifting of school
Layyah: District and Sessions Judge Muhammad Rasheed Qamar on Wednesday directed the education authorities to stop shifting a primary school in the remote Mahuwala locality to another village.
Taking exception to the shifting of the Government Boys Primary School to Baiwala, the judge asked the education officials not to spoil the future of the children seeking education in the institution and besides maintaining it, they should go for establishment of a school at Baiwala as well.
The D&SJ (justice of peace) announced the verdict while responding to the plea of the parents of Mahuwala school students, who alleged that the institute was being shifted at the behest of a political figure.
He reprimanded Assistant Education Officer (Choubara tehsil) Tahir Ramzan and directed the EDO to transfer him for executing the school shifting orders.
The primary school at Basti Mahuwala, Chak 332-TDA, has been functioning for the last 19 years and has currently 58 students on its rolls. The D&SJ had summoned MPA Qaiser Abbas Magsi of the PML-N, the EDO education and the Choubara DDEO to explain their stance on the issue. Advocate Hasnain Khan represented the MPA in the court.
A philanthropist, Haq Nawaz said that he had donated four kanals for the establishment of the school 18 years ago. He said the decision to shift the school was politically motivated as the residents of Mahuwala had voted against MPA Qaiser Abbas Magsi.
"The MPA now wants to teach a lesson to the Mahuwala residents by depriving their children of the only school by shifting it to Basti Baiwala, five kilometres away in the desert area."
Documents show the Punjab government has earmarked around Rs1.8 million for establishment of new schools at Mahuwala but no work has been done on the project so far.
In a related development, Muzaffar Hussain, the only teacher at the Mahuwala school, has been directed to serve a school run by a non-government organisation at Basti Baiwala. The education authorities posted him back on Sept 11 but he was again transferred to the Baiwala institute within a month (on Sept 29) on the alleged pressure of the MPA.
MPA Qaiser Magsi refused to comment when this correspondent contacted him.
EDO (Education) Shakoor Anjum denied any political pressure to shift the school. He said the education department's monitoring agencies had reported low enrolment rate in the school. "So I have transferred the teacher to a school nearby". He failed to answer queries about shifting of the school.
Meanwhile, educationists and social circles have condemned what they said political victimisation of children. They demanded that the chief minister take immediate action and ensure that the Mahuwala primary school resumed operation. Dawn
