Call to disband political student groups at Varsities

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 11:30

LAHORE:April 21:Academicians have recommended university administrations should disband all political, sectarian, racial or ethnic organisations on campus while providing an alternative platform for student to express their opinion.

After a two-day brainstorming session, educationists concluded on Thursday that universities should hold regular sports events, cultural programmes, study circles, speeches, debates and literary sessions in order to promote peace and tolerance in Punjab.

The proposals came at the ‘Conference on Promotion of Peace and Tolerance on University Campuses of Punjab’, where vice-chancellors, student affairs directors, intellectuals and representatives of 27 public-sector universities were present.

The summit was organised jointly by the Working Group for Promotion of Peace and Tolerance on University Campuses and the Punjab Higher Education Commission (PHEC).

“We need to preach the norms of plurality, diversity and peaceful coexistence and a university is the best place to begin,” said Punjab Higher Education Minister Syed Raza Ali Gillani at the concluding session. “Marginalised voices are needed to be accepted and included in the mainstream debate on peace and tolerance in society.”

PHEC Chairman Dr Nizamuddin said tolerance was important for the development of mental faculties of university students. “We should develop and revive academic societies at our universities to tackle the issue of sporadic student groups in order to engage them in positive campus based activities,” he added.

“While it is important to teach students about peace in classrooms, we also need to focus beyond the classroom. We need to work on improving the curriculum rather than syllabi. We should engage our students in extracurricular activities, debates, speeches and sports,” Dr Nizamuddin believed.

At the conference, participants were divided into four working groups to formulate recommendations and suggestions. Members deliberated upon the possible role of media, civil society, government, varsity administrations, students and faculty members in promoting peace and tolerance on campuses.

In their recommendations, different group members said the ban on student unions at varsities was commendable and should be extended to faculty unions and staff unions as well.

A holistic approach was suggested for primary, secondary and tertiary-level education system. Courses like professional ethics, moral values and citizenship activism should be introduced and content of Islamic studies and Pakistan Studies should be revised, the academicians said.

They also called for strictly monitoring mosques at universities and activities of religious groups so that they do not preach about a particular sect.

PHEC to launch mobile libraries to Promote Reading

Fri, 04/21/2017 - 11:05

LAHORE:April 21:Punjab Higher Education Commission (PHEC) Chairman Prof Dr Nizamuddin has said PHEC will launch mobile libraries project to promote book reading culture, adding this facility would be provided in remote areas.
He said this while addressing a seminar organised by Punjab University (PU) Department of Information Management and PU Library in connection with celebrations of World Book and Copyright Day on Thursday.
PU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Zaffar Mueen Nasir, journalist Mujeeb ur Rehman Shami, Chairperson Department of Information Management Prof Dr Kanwal Amin, Chief Librarian Haseeb Paracha, President Academic Staff Association Javed Sami, Secretary Iftikhar Tarrar, Director General PHEC Shahid Soroya, faculty members and a large number of students were present.

Dr Nizam said it was a misconception that the number of publication of books had reduced due to electronic media rather electronic media was supplementing print media. He said the number of publication of books was increasing globally however it was necessary to promote book reading habits. He said: “We must connect our students with history through promotion of book reading culture so that we could understand background of happenings”.

Dr Zaffar Mueen Nasir said the PU administration was taking several initiatives to promote book reading culture on the campus. He said every student would have to write book reviews of 10 relevant course books in each semester otherwise they would not get their degrees. He said the administration would set up library in each hostel and a library would also be established in campus colony for children. He said the university would award special prize to the person who would write maximum book reviews and the university would also consider the person who would read maximum books for the roll of honor. He said: “Our multinational companies must come forward to promote book reading culture and fulfill their corporate social responsibilities”. He announced the administration would organise book fair from April 27 to April 29.

Mujeeb ur Rehman Shami said: “Our relationship with book had weakened and there was need to find out reasons behind it. Mohalla-level libraries had vanished and universities had turned into colleges where there was lack of creation of new knowledge. The real problem was that we don’t have reading habits. We must establish strong link between students and books”.

Dr Kanwal Amin said e-books had not replaced printed books rather electronic media was complementing and supporting printed editions. She said the role of books was increasing and that’s why number of publication of books had increased manifold worldwide and the importance of printed books had not reduced. She said the traditional value of books would remain alive forever and we must not worry about it because books were major source of transfer of knowledge. However, she said, there was a dire need to promote book reading habits. She said: “We must give books to our children instead of giving them mobile phones to play games and we must benefit from the positive uses of technology”.

Later, Dr Nizamuddin distributed book lover awards amongst top 10 PU Library users who read maximum number of books last year amongst library members. The first prize went to Prof Dr Ghulam Moeen Uddin of Department of Persian. Shehrary Liaqat Ali, Muhammad Zahid, Maleeha Rafiq, Zoha Khalique, Rubina Liaqat, Nourin Haneef, Imran Mushtaq, Ghulam Qadar and Ayesha Azam secured from second to tenth positions, respectively.The news.

Student lynching sends shockwaves through legal fraternity

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 11:43

LAHORE:19 April:Twelve former presidents of the Supreme Court Bar Association expressed deep anguish and concern over the brutal lynching and murder of Mashal Khan, a student of the Abdul Wali Khan University (AWKUM) in Mardan.
The brutal manner in which students of AWKUM killed their peer not only pained the family of the deceased, but sent shockwaves through the country, they said in a joint press statement issued from the ­
media office of Asma Jahangir.
The presidents included Akram Sheikh, Abid Hassan Manto, Qazi Muhammad Jameel, Malik Muhammad Qayyum, Muneer A Malik, Justice (Retd) Tariq Mehmood, Aitzaz Ahsan, Ali Ahmed Kurd, Asma Jahangir, Yaseen Azad, Kamran Murtaza and Syed Ali Zafar.
They said the murder of Mashal Khan was a clear wakeup call for every citizen who values diversity and needs protection from the state. “More voices should severely condemn such brutal acts of violence,” the statement read.

The former heads of the SCBA said it was evident from the reporting of this gruesome incident that no one was safe from the rage of mobs which could be mobilised in no time to use the worst form of violence.

“Worst still is the utter helplessness of law enforcement agencies to control such charged crowds. It is alarming that in this case, the law enforcement present at the site reportedly condoned the brutality.”

They said the government should ensure that not only are the perpetrators of this crime and other such incidents brought to justice, but that intolerance is strictly reprimanded in all centers of learning.

“Stricter laws should be enacted and implemented. Social media is full of hate messages that are ill-founded and continue to vilify and threaten individuals.

It is now imperative to speak up against vigilantism or mob justice. Equally important is to denounce the inability and reluctance of the government to check the rising trend,” the statement concluded.
