Moderation targets International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI)

ISLAMABAD, Sep 1: Gone are the days when one used to prefer the International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) because of its separate campuses for boys and girls which is now following the agenda of enlightened moderation of the present government gradually converting the university into a co-education institution.

The university in this regard has taken many steps such as starting of co-classes of boys and girls, combined bus services and making a of swimming pool for girls at women campus.

Official sources while requesting anonymity has revealed that the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has allocated Rs 3.5 million to the university for the establishment of a swimming pool and gymnasium at female campus.

"There is a shortage of rooms at the female campus for the students even female faculty members are facing shortage of rooms and have not enough place for themselves. But the university is planning to build a swimming pool and gymnasium for girls students, which we are unable to understand," one of the faculty member alleged.

The university has started combined bus service for boys and girls, which was once offered separately for both. Co-education system has been introduced at the Bachelor's level in the faculty of Engineering Technology and in the faculty of Computer Science at the Master's and PhD level.

One of the faculty member remarked the university administration is doing all this just to please the government and secure their seats. "The government itself is following the American agenda so the university is also following the footsteps of the government".

It's also worth mentioning that the university is also planning to change its name from International Islamic University Islamabad to Shah Faisal International University, which is creating fear amongst the students that they may face difficulties while seeking jobs abroad. And changing the identity can create confusions.

There are also reports that the university is considering to close the faculty of Shariah and Law one of the nine faculties at the university.

While the spokes person of the university has said the students themselves are not applying for the courses offered by this faculty otherwise the university has no plans to close the faculty.

Misbah Saboohi, Assistant Professor Law & Shariah, was of the view that the strength of the department has not reduced however it has divided into different sub-courses offered at department. She agreed that the Master's programme of Arabic Law has becoming unpopular amongst the students, as it has lost its demand in the market.The nation
