Thin attendance in govt offices and schools
Rawalpindi: The government offices and schools witnessed thin attendance on Friday after end of Eidul Fitr holidays.

Government employees who had come to their respective offices expressed the optimism that their colleagues would attend the offices from Monday.

Muhammad Mustafa, a government employee said, "Actually in our office majority of employees hail from other cities therefore they availed extra holidays to enjoy sometime with their families.

On the other hand the ratio of attendance in private institutions was far more than the government institutions.

Similarly attendance of students in schools and colleges was also very thin on Friday, as most of the students have gone to their hometowns with their families.

Kamran Ahmed, a teacher of a government college said, "Due to the limited number of the students, it is not possible for us to deliver lectures, as in my class only a couple of students attended the class with the total strength of more than 50." He said that majority of students will come after Monday.

On the other hand people who have some sort for work pending with the government offices are facing problems.

Hamid Khan, a contactor who has been visiting a government office after the Eidul Fitr holidays, has not been able to get his problem resolved as the concerned officer is still on leave. He said, "I have applied for an important tender, but the concerned official is still on leave and his subordinates told me that I should come back on Monday because the concerned official will come back after the weekend."

Lack of interest and criminal negligence halted IT centre
Lahore: Provincial Minister for Auqaf Haji Ehsanuddin Qureshi has said that lack of interest and criminal negligence on the part of former chief minister Ch. Pervaiz Elahi in the execution of an important and useful project like IT Centre is an unpardonable crime and he should be made to pay the sum of one billion rupees which was wasted due to unnecessary delay.

In a Press statement, the Auqaf Minister said that the project of construction of IT Centre was started in June 2007 at an estimated cost of 3.3 billion rupees. He said that services of a Chinese construction company namely China State Engineering Corporation was acquired for this purpose, however, after some time due to lack of interest and irregularities this project came to a halt.

He said that while due to anti-Pakistan policies of former President Pervez Musharraf and the plundering of his cronies the future of this project became bleak, the worsening law and order situation and political instability also left a negative impact on the project and the engineers of Chinese construction company had to leave.

As a result, he said, this project was delayed and the construction cost increased from Rs.3.3 billion to Rs.4.3 billion. He said that this project was later given to another construction company NESPAK and the entire responsibility for delay and financial loss lies on former chief minister Ch. Pervaiz Elahi and his ministers and advisors.

The Minister further said that Chief Minister Punjab has sought a detailed report about IT Centre project within ten days. He said that the present government will however recover the money wasted due to delay in the project from Pervaiz Elahi and set a tradition of accountability so that no politician in future could dare to waste public money in such a manner.

NCJP Concern over education policy
Lahore: The National Commission for Justice and Peace (NCJP) has urged the government to review the new National Education Policy to check infringement of religious freedom guaranteed in articles 20 and 22 of the Constitution. Article 22 specifically barred any religious education other than the student's own.

Expressing their concern at the new education policy, NCJP Chairperson Archbishop Lawrence Johan Saldhana and Secretary Peter Jacob said it failed to address the existing religious biases in the curriculum and imposed Islamic Studies indirectly on one million non-Muslim students in the country.

They said the NCPJ noted with regret that the Ministry of Education 'totally' ignored civil society's concerns about religious and gender biases during formulation of the policy, especially its chapter 4 dealt with religious education in public schools. It sought to enhance the scope of the religious education without a proper evaluation of the existing syllabus.

NCJP office-bearers urged the government to make provisions for the non-Muslim students to receive lessons according to their faith. "If the government thinks that public education is not possible without a compulsory subject of Islamic Studies and Arabic, religious minorities will be forced to demand separate religious education for Hindus, Christians, Sikhs and Parsis."

They expressed their concern at the availability of religious text in abundance and in daily use and said that it needed additional measures to avoid abuse of blasphemy laws at schools and colleges.

They said the subject of ethics proposed in the new education policy was hardly a choice for non-Muslim students. The option involved several difficulties, including unavailability of textbooks.

The syllabus had chapters on various religions, but presented only the Islamic point of view. Moreover, non-Muslim students risked their grades and isolation from the rest of the class, they concluded. Dawn
