Rawalpindi schools, colleges closure till proper security

Rawalpindi schools, colleges reopening linked to adequate security arrangements
Rawalpindi, Oct 24: Commissioner Rawalpindi Zahid Saeed on Friday said reopening of educational institutions was linked to adequate security arrangements put in place by their administrations.

He said heads of the educational institutions should inform the students that the institutions would not open on Monday.

Speaking at a security review meeting here, he made it clear that educational institutions and other organisations would prepare their own security arrangements.

He said the Punjab government had closed all the educational institutions in the province and would reopen them after they presented their security arrangement report.He said due to deteriorating law and order situation, the educational institutions and other public and private departments should make foolproof security arrangements. He said all the institutions and departments should erect barriers at their exit and entry points.

A survey conducted by the special branch of the police has revealed that only a few out of the 204 educational institutions have put in place security arrangements, he added.

He said lack of security arrangements would make the institutions an easy target of terrorists; therefore, their administrations should arrange proper security arrangement on the premises.

The commissioner said the city district government would issue arm licences to the heads of educational institutions and other public and private departments. "The government will also arrange short training courses for security personnel if the heads of institutions and other organisations wanted," he said.

He said women police would be deployed at Fatima Jinnah Women University but the administration of the institution would have to arrange security guards for its campus protection.

He said the city police had also been directed to beef up security in and around hospitals. Security personnel would also be deployed on the rooftops of hospitals to monitor the surrounding areas.

He said the administration of hospitals had been directed to keep a vigil on suspected persons.

On the proposals of the educational institutions' heads, the commissioner assured them that the traffic police would be directed to make arrangements to ensure smooth flow of traffic around the educational institutions.

He urged the heads of educational institutions to issue identity cards to the students and keep the record of the visitors especially to the hostels. Dawn

Closure of schools
Islamabad: The terrorist attack on an educational institution of Islamabad has galvanised the nation against the terrorists with just about everyone rightly condemning the heinous act. There is now a general feeling among the people to unite and stand up to the terrorists. This is the type of healthy response required in such a situation. But has this response not come very late?

At the risk of offending some readers, one would like to ask why such a response was lacking when hundreds of educational institutions west of the Indus were being blown up with bombs, and students killed and wounded. If the very first incident of blowing up an educational institution in Swat had galvanised the nation there would probably have been no attack on the IIU. Had there been a quick and effective reply to a terrorist attack on an army training unit at Dargai, in which a number of jawans were martyred, GHQ would have been a securer place today. Having said that, even now there is time for the whole nation to rise to the occasion, unite and crush these terrorists. Let us face these savages like one solid united people and make them realise that they have made a mistake by challenging us.

Peshawar: Khyber Medical University (KMU) has announced inspection schedule for affiliation of public and private sector medical colleges and other health institutions across the province. A meeting of the affiliation committee of the university was held Friday with vice-chancellor KMU Prof Dr Muhammad Hafizullah in the chair.

The committee was briefed about 'KMU Affiliation Statutes of Colleges/Institutions 2008' in general and the functions and responsibilities of the committee under the statutes in particular.

The dates will be fixed after circulation of copies of their applications to the members of the committee for proper scrutiny and their comments/recommendations thereof. It was also decided that next time applications for affiliation of different degree programmes i.e. Bachelor's and Master's, etc. may be categorised separately in the agenda.

It was also decided that the inspection committee has to be accompanied by co-opted members from the relevant disciplines for which a college/institution is seeking affiliation. The VC would choose the co-opted members after fixation of dates for inspection by the affiliation committee.
