Students start leaving for hometowns for Eid
Lahore: The students boarding in public and private universities of
the provincial metropolis have started leaving for their hometowns to
celebrate Eidul Fitr with their families.
previous years, colleges are already closed owing to summer vacations
which were extended this year in the wake of floods in many districts of
the province. Though the Punjab government had announced reopening of
the government colleges in mid-August, the academic activities did not
resume as the colleges were reopened to involve students, teachers and
other staff in relief activities for the flood-affected people.
Punjab University (PU) has the largest number of boarding students as
around 5,000 students, including over 100 foreign students, reside in
the universityís New Campus and Old Campus hostels.
Majority of the
boarders of different educational institutions, including the PU,
started leaving for their hometowns on Tuesday after attending regular
classes to avoid routine hassle witnessed especially a day before Eid.
Besides such students, those staying at private hostels and residences have also started leaving for their hometowns.
It is important to mention here that the government has already announced four Eid holidays starting from Friday, September 10.
different varsities have also started issuing notification of hostel
closure on the eve of Eidul Fitr except for those belonging to foreign
countries. Different student organisations have already announced
spending Eid holidays with the flood affectees and in this connection,
dozens of students have also left for flood-hit areas of the province
with Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT).
Like students, the teachers who
belong to other cities, have also started going to their native towns to
celebrate the festive occasion with their loved ones.
A PU official
said security during Eid holidays was also usually beefed up at the
university hostels as most of the foreign students preferred to stay at
university during these holidays. The educational institutions, having
foreign students, organise different programmes in connection with Eid.
According to PU Registrar Prof Dr Muhammad Naeem Khan, various
programmes, including dinner, for the foreign students were also
organised every year during Eid holidays.
It is pertinent to mention
here that a good number of foreign students also study at the
University of Engineering and Technology (UET), King Edward Medical
College University (KEMU), Beaconhouse National University (BNU) and
medical institutes of the provincial metropolis. The educational
institutions will reopen after Eid holidays on Tuesday, September 14,

Lahore: The inquiry tribunal headed by District and Sessions Judge
(D&SJ), Bahawalpur, has reported to the Lahore High Court that 'some
hidden hand' acted to ignite clash between students and the principal
Quaid-e-Azam Medical College last month which subsequently led to police
torture on female students when they were holding a protest rally.
judge noted in the report if the students had some demands even then
the situation could not have taken the serious turn which it did so
suddenly to which the students also strongly reacted.
The LHC chief
justice took suo moto notice about the issue on a published report and
photographs on the incident of thrashing of female students of the said
college by the local police on August 21 last, and had appointed one-man
inquiry tribunal on the incident on the request of Punjab government.
to the report, police raided a hostel of the said college and arrested a
number of medical students. Against this action, the students and young
doctors staged a protest in front of the principal office of the
college but the police, in presence of the high-rank police officials,
mercilessly tortured the students.
The report gave weight to the
version of the principal and other professors about the involvement of
some hidden hands behind this sad state of affairs in the college.
principal had claimed some criminal record holders were residing
illegally in the medical hostel along with the students which flared up
The tribunal has recommended that the college
principal might be asked why criminal record holder students were
residing in the hostels of Quaid e-Azam Medical College and why not any
action was taken against them.
The judge observed as true that the
students after acceptance of their demands changed their stance and
started demanding resignation of the principal that speaks volumes about
the hidden hand working behind the clash. The judge recommended that
genuine problems of the students like increase in dues and loadshedding
should be looked into favourably to avoid such incidents in future.

directed the concerned ones to send the inquiry report to Punjab
government requiring it to look into the matter and do the needful in
accordance with recommendations made therein. The CJ disposed of the

Abid Sher hands over copies of NIC, certificates to Punjab varsity
Lahore: Chairman of National Assemblyís Standing Committee on Education
Abid Sher Ali visited the Punjab University on Tuesday and handed over
copies of his national identity card (NIC) and matriculation and
intermediate certificates to the university authorities.
the number of the MPsí documents received by the Punjab University (PU)
has reached over 100 while the university has yet to receive copies of
certificates and NICs of around 270 MPs that included around 18 those
MPs whose degrees are yet to be verified by the university.
learnt that PML-N MNA Abid Sher Ali, who had raised the issue of fake
degrees, had also assured the PU authorities to play his role in
sensitising the MPs and senators to submit the required documents to the
varsities so that the task might be completed as early as possible.
early August this year, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) had
issued a directive to various universities, including the PU, to contact
the politicians whom they had awarded graduation degrees and ask them
to give copies of their matriculation and intermediate certificates as
well as the NICs for verification by the Commission. It had set August
25, 2010 as last date to complete the task.
However, most of the
universities, including the PU, failed to meet the deadline. The PU had
received matriculation and intermediate certificates and NICs of around
12 MPs out of over 300 by August 25. A number of MPs had contacted the
universities and expressed inability to provide the documents instantly.
is also important to mention here that recently, the HEC extended the
last date and asked the universities to complete the process by Eidul
Fitr. However, now the universities have received formal directive from
the HEC according to which the universities have to complete the task by
September 25, 2010.
According to sources, the PU had also written to
provincial assemblies, NA and Senate to provide present addresses of
MPs and senators.
The PU, so far, has received the reply from the
Senate in which it has been advised to visit the Senate's website to get
the present addresses of the Senators belonging to all the parties
whose documents are required by the university.
In May 2010, the
National Assembly's Standing Committee on Education had handed over
degrees of parliamentarians to the HEC for verification following many
sitting MPs were said to have obtained fake degrees to contest the
February 2008 polls for which graduation was the minimum qualification. The news
