Punjab teachers found not guilty of treason

LAHORE, Sep 7: Education secretary Khalid Ikhlaq Gillani on Thursday acquitted Punjab Professors and Lecturers Association (PPLA) president Nazim Hasnain and Lahore PPLA president Prof Majid Wazeer on charges of 'conspiracy' and 'rebellion' against the government. He gave instructions to withdraw show-cause notices against the teachers.

The PPLA in a press release on Thursday thanked the bar councils, civil society, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, the Khaksar Tehreek and non-governmental organisations for their support. The PPLA vowed to carry on its movement to safeguard the teachers' rights across the province. In order to meet the challenges, the PPLA said, it would work for the improvement of the education standards.

On September 3, the Lahore High Court Bar Association (LHCBA) had sent a legal notice to the Education secretary to pay Rs 250 million for issuing show cause notices to the teachers for participating in the lawyers' movement. Assistant Professor Majid Wazeer and Assistant Professor Nazim Hasnain have been teaching political science at Shalamar College Baghbanpura and Islamia College Railway Road respectively. Daily times
