Outrageous Books on Sale in Islamabad and Rawalpindi



Sale of unethical books on the rise in twin cities

ISLAMABAD At stage where advancement in technology has enchanted modern youth towards book reading, the booksellers, however are cashing in this phenomenon by selling unethical, obscene and immoral literature, Daily Times has learnt. During visits of different places in twin cities Daily Times learnt that the students are more interested in unethical books rather than knowledgeable books and they like to read vulgar literature, not only students but people from different professions read such kind of immoral books.
Besides, the authority did not take any action against such kinds of bookseller. These kinds of books are usually sold at bus stops in twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. The students of different colleges and school come these bus stops, search for vulgar literature on these stalls, instead of purchasing informative books.

It was learnt that the conductors, beggars and labors seen on bus stops also search for vulgarpictorial books or novels. These kinds of books stalls are seen at Peerwadhai, Faizabad, I-10 and G-7 bus stops. Novels of nudity, vulgar poetry and many other unethical books are being sold there.


These kinds of books adversely affect the minds and approach of young students. Such books are being sold only at Rs 30 to 35 on the stall at bus stops of twin cities. These books are source of entertainment for lower class community of labors, conductors and beggars. The wrongdoings spreading in our society is the result of reading these vulgar and unethical novels and books. They give rise to many gender related issues in our society.
Psychologist and physicist Dr Sharif Astori said that young generation is an important asset of the country. They are moving towards wrongdoings instead of good deeds. He also said that reading immoral books adversely affect the thinking capability of people. It affects the process of personality building of our youth. Then people are forced to think negatively, instead of taking things positively. Therefore effective action needs to be taken against these booksellers.
Another bookseller Hamid Chugtai sells novels and magazines at I-10 bus stop. He told that he sells old novels and course books of different classes, but our young generation is least interested in buying them. Therefore they need to display this kind of substandard books at the bookstalls. It is the only source of income for them and they earn money to fulfill the required expenditures of their household. He also told that students demand these books without any hesitation. Therefore the booksellers have to keep in mind the market demand while selling the books.
Talking to Daily Times Pakistan Academy of Letters (PAL) Director Tariq Shahid said that the dilemma is that our society is moving towards unethical and immoral things and people are interested in vulgarity and wrongdoings. This could ultimately result in increase in gender issues in our society. Therefore effective strategy will be introduced to take action against these booksellers. He told that the penalty for such a crime under section 292 of law is 3 months imprisonment.

THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF ESTABLISHMENT OF

SHAHEED MOHTARMA BENAZIR BHUTTO MEDICAL UNIVERSITY



Praiseworthy Ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto gifted a Medical College to the people of Larkana & adjacent areas with the name of Chandka Medical College. His dream was not only to make this institute the premier institute of Pakistan but to ultimately expand it to the level of a University



Vision of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto

The vision of his father was already in the mind of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto a lady with great vision, intellect & international fame but unfortunately she could not fulfill this dream of her father. However nominating this university with her name will always and for ever remind us about this legendry lady woman.



First Medical University in Public sector in Pakistan

Captain Usman Ali Essani the then chairman of University Grants Commission came up with the idea of establishing a Medical University in public sector in Pakistan and he selected Liaquat Medical College for this purpose and ultimately Liaquat University of Medical & Health Sciences was established. With the establishment of LUMHS and up-gradation of UGC to become Higher Education Commission (HEC) other medical colleges of the country entered into the arena of becoming Medical University & Subsequently Dow University of Health Sciences, King Edward Medical University and Khyber Medical University were established.



Struggle for University at Larkana

Chandka Medical College was providing Medical Education to the people of Upper Sindh and health care facilities to the people of this area and the adjoining areas of Balouchistan of Punjab. After establishment of Medical Universities at Karachi and Hyderabad, the faculty of CMC started feeling isolated in the competition of research, advanced investigations and treatment facilities as well as modern teaching, training and assessment tools. Hence an struggle for up-gradation of CMC to the level of a University was started by correspondence with Higher Education Commission and the Federal Government.



Creation of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical University through announcement by Chief Minister Sindh.



The dream of making this institute a Medical University was fulfilled through announcement by the present Honourable Chief Minister of Sindh, Syed Qaim Ali Shah on the streets of Larkana on 12th April 2008. This announcement gave hope and promise to the faculty of CMC and people of Larkana and brought jubiliation.



Passage of bill in Sindh Assembly

After the announcement of university by Honourable Chief Minister of Sindh, the efforts were enhanced to complete the formalities towards preparation of act for the University to be presented in Sindh Assembly in the form of Bill. The bill for Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical University was presented and unanimously passed by Sindh Assembly on 12th September 2008. The Act was sent to Honourable Governor of Sindh for Assent and subsequently the Act was notified on 18th October 2008. The first Vice Chancellor of the University took over the charge on 9th-July-2009.

Ghalib Urdu English Poems



Ghalib, Faiz’s forgotten English poem discussed
KARACHI Three meaningful sessions on Urdu poetry, with especial reference to Ghalib, were held on the penultimate day of the 4th international Urdu conference at the Arts Council on Thursday.

The title of the first session, presided over by Dr Shamim Hanafi and conducted by Naqqash Kazmi, was Ghalib-i-Ahd Afreen.

Dr Rauf Parekh immediately gave impetus to the sitting by analysing Ghalib’s objection to lughat naveesi (lexicography).

He said at a turbulent period in Indian history when Ghalib had time on his hands, he began flipping through Burhan-i-Qaitey and it didn’t take him long to find faults in it. He said this sparked off a series of arguments and counter arguments as four books against Ghalib’s observations were published. Quoting Nazeer Ahmed, Dr Parekh then gave a list of Ghalib’s objections and found loopholes in them.

He said Ghalib introduced those words into the Persian language which lacked credibility.

Amjad Tufail’s paper was on Ghalib’s influence on modern Urdu poetry. He unequivocally remarked Ghalib saw ahead of his time even before Sir Syed, and it was he who had advised Sir Syed to think along modern lines.

Talking about the poets who were openly impressed with the great poet, he said Iqbal, like Ghalib, had touched on philosophical topics in his nazms and ghazals. He said Faiz’z concept of raqeeb (rival in love) was also borrowed from Ghalib and Rashid’s Persianised diction too was inspired by his work.

Dr Zafar Iqbal’s topic was Ghalib’s prose in light of his letter writing.

He said two aspects clearly came out of his epistolary communication: humanism (insaani hamdardi) and caring for others (ghamgusari). He argued that Ghalib’s prose writing was a reflection of his personality.

Dr Qazi Afzaal Husain summarily rejected some of the earlier speakers’ observations, stating it made no difference what Ghalib thought of dictionaries or who wrote in Ghalib’s style; what mattered was that Ghalib stood tall among the rest of Urdu poets by virtue of his creative prowess. It was Ghalib’s creative prowess which changed the direction of tradition in Urduliterature — he neither had a predecessor nor a successor.

Dr Alia Imam said Ghalib was a timeless poet and his thoughts were relevant to date.

Turkish scholar Khalil Toqar shed light on the interest with which Urdu was learnt as a language in Turkey.

He lamented that some students had started taking interest in the language, but when they witnessed disinterest for the language in Pakistan, they were putt off.

Dr Shamim Hanafi commenced his paper on Ghalib by suggesting the topic was a challenging one.

He said it’s time we discussed great writers without using the crutches of terminologies (istalahat). He said the era in which Ghalib existed was full of tumult and the city he identified himself with had undergone tremendous destruction. In the face of it all, Ghalib kept going steadfastly, feeling the pain of his time.

He was a non-conformist and a bohemian. As far as the language went, he was an iconoclast. Though he was in favour of modern times, he was never impressed with the British. In many of his ghazals he looked back in time with wistfulness.


Dil dhoondta hai phir wohi fursat ke raat din
Baithey rahein tasawwar-i-janan kiyey huay


(The heart longs for old times
When we did nothing but think of beloved)



He said in the aforementioned ghazal, Ghalib repeatedly used the word ‘phir’ (again) which signified how hurt he was with the changingtimes. Yet he was adamant that:

Apni hasti se hi ho jo kuch ho
Aagahi gar nahin ghaflat hi sahi
(The self should attain everything
Be it wisdom or mindlessness)

The second session was on modern Urdu poetry. Ziaul Hasan was the first speaker who threw light on contemporary ghazal writing.

He said though experiments which were done with the genre by modern poets hadn’t been successful, they nonetheless kept its inherent strength intact. He said it was in the 1970s that new trends began to emerge, but in the 1980s they manifested themselves with full force. He said the genre brimmed with possibilities. He claimed it’s not how correctly words were used in ghazal but how creatively they’re employed which mattered.

Yashab Tamanna talked about those poets who were writing Urdu poetry in the UK.

Obaid Siddiqi told the audience that ghazal was such a powerful form that in India even poets of regional languages were adopting it. He said the word ‘modern’ was often confused with ‘new’. He pointed out ghazal was influenced by Persian, but it were Firaq and Nasir Kazmi who liberated it from the Persian clutches.

Syed Mazhar Jamil read out an interesting paper on one of Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s forgotten poems written in English and published in the Civil and Military Gazette of Lahore in March 1961.

The poem titled The Unicorn and the Dancing Girl was written against the backdrop of Moenjo Daro. He iterated Faiz not only wrote poems in Urdu and Punjabi but also in English, a fact which critics hadn’t looked into the way it merited. Sarshar Siddiqi, who presided over the meeting, objected to a speaker’s view that ghazal was a genre in which just two lines (misrey) were used.

The third session, conducted by Javed Hasan and presided over by Farhad Zaidi, was dedicated to two giants of Urdu poetry N. M. Rashid and Majaz.

Ambreen Haseeb Amber read out an analytical essay on Rashid and highlighted the element of storytelling (dastaan goee) in his poetry. She complained that his poems were read in bits and pieces and not in entirety.

Prof Sahar Ansari spoke on Majaz. Combining his speech with anecdotes and excerpts from some of the poet’s famous nazms, Prof Ansari commented that despite the great stature of the poet not much research work on Majaz had been undertaken. He mentioned Mustafa Zaidi in the same vein.

In the end known TV artiste Talat Husain recited five of N. M. Rashid’s poems, including Hasan Koozagar and Andha Kabari.

In the end two books –– Justuju Kia Hai by Intizar Husain and Jalib Jalib by Mujahid Barelvi –– were launched.

Known poet Anwar Masood was listed to recite his humour-laden poetry after the launch.

‘Forgotten Faces – Daring Women of Pakistan’s Folk



Book exposing double standards launched
ISLAMABAD, Nov 24: ‘Forgotten Faces – Daring Women of Pakistan’s Folk Theater’ Fauzia Saeed’s book focusing on themes of marginalised women and attitudes they face in the society was launched in a ceremony held at Lok Virsa on Thursday.

Fauzia Saeed’s ‘Taboo: A PhD Girl in the Red Light Area’, has won acclaim from the crosssection of the society.

Unlike the ‘working women’ of Red Light area, this time her subject is the women who have performed in rural folk theaters and won appreciation of their audience to become legends.

However, a stigma towards their profession continues to haunt them and when off the stage, they experience heart aches, violence and rejection.

They are patronised and economically exploited by the society.



Ms Saeed’s thesis, not much different from that in Taboo, is that our society is afraid ofcreative expression as they would go and watch women performance but would never allow their daughters to become performers. She explained that the book is her salute to these female artists and to their greatness who built a career in the performing arts in the 60s, when, even today, it is almost impossible to adopt this field.

Ms Saeed finally explained that thebook also highlights the discriminatory attitudes of society towards these performers, since women are stigmatised while men are rewarded.

In a chapter that talks about the children of performers who have made a name for themselves, she highlights how the children will brag about the successful fathers but rarely the mothers.

The event had different panelists who commended the book and its value in the anthropological study of our culture. But in the end, the thing that struck the most was Ms Saeed’s rejection of those who pretend to appreciate the historic arts. She said,
“Only if you bring your daughters in the field, I can believe that you really hold this art sacred.”

Punjab board result messed up reasons



LAHORE, judicial commission probing into loopholes in messed-up intermediate results on Thursday snubbed former IT consultant of Punjab’s education boards Dr Majid Naeem when he tried to criticise media’s role during the episode.

Recording his statement to the commission, Dr Naeem said every year education boards commit errors in results but this year the media scandalised the matter. He argued if there had been any serious problem with the computerised system, the matriculation results would not have been compiled with only minor or routine errors.

Commission member Justice Chaudhry Shahid Saeed, however, rejected the argument and said addressing Dr Naeem: “You think the media should have stayed idle even when students were on roads and boards’ properties were set on fire.”

The judge observed that the media played its due role and tried its best to show the issue in true colours. The former IT consultant, presently in NAB’s custody, reiterated his statement that boards’ administration was involved in the protests and ransacking on board promises. He said a mafia comprising a few people had its monopoly in the boards who sabotaged the computerised system to maintain their hegemony.

The commission, however, observed that the statements of all education boards’ heads suggested that Dr Naeem was given unlimited powers and nobody dared to even point out flaws in the system.



Dr Naeem told the commission that he had sought three days from the boards’ heads to remove the errors in the result but his offer was not considered. The commission asked the former consultant to file his final statement, observing that his appearance in the court was not necessary on every hearing.

Punjab Information Technology Board Chairman Umar Saif Khurram and director general Naeem Waqar Qureshi, Lahore BISE’s IT in charge Mian Tariq Mahmood and controller examinations Anwar Ahmad also recorded their statements.

Lahore board’s store superintendent Muhammad Tariq presented the record of equipment purchased for the computerisation project.

Mr Khurram agreed to commission’s argument that each education board should have introduced its individual computerised system and the old manual system should have also been run parallel to the new. He said the boards had not the required manpower to enforce and effectively run the new system.


The commission also allowed Judicial Activism Panel chairman Muhammad Azhar Siddique to assist it in the matter and present documentary evidences on Friday (today).(DAWN)

petition of Dr. Majid Naeem IT Consultant of Punjab board



LAHORE – A two-member bench of the Lahore High Court on Thursday dismissed the petition of Dr. Majid Naeem , former IT consultant of all education boards in Punjab, who has challenged his arrest by the National Accountability Bureau.

The court had already dismissed his acquittal application in the case. Accused Naeem soon after his remand had filed anapplication with NAB for plea-bargain (willingness to return embezzled money).
After arguments, the bench comprising Justice Nasir Saeed Sheikh and Justice Rauf Ahmad Sheikh reserved the judgment and later announce the verdict.
Meanwhile, Judicial Commission Chairman Justice Shahid Saeed on Wednesday praised the role of electronic and print media in highlighting the blunders in online intermediate results.


Justice saeed said that media tried its best to show real image of the issue and to awake the government. The chairman also admonished the former ITconsultant of all education boards in Punjab Dr Majid Naeem when he criticized media’s role.

Dr Naeem recorded his statements before the commission and said that every year education boards face errors in results but this year the media highlighted the matter above its limits. The chairman snubbed Dr Naeem and remarked, “You mean that media should have dumb even when students including females were on roads and boards’ properties were set on fire.” Dr Naeem, presently in the NAB’s custody, informed the commission that board’s employees andadministration was behind the protests. He recorded monopoly of handful mafia sabotaged the online computerization system. He said he had also sought three days from the boards’ chairmen to remove the errors in the result but no one paid attention on his offer.
At this, the chairmen stated that statements of all chairmen of education boards recommended that Dr Naeem was given unlimited powers so that no one could dare to point out mistakes in the system. The commission asked him that his appearance was not necessary on every hearing.
Lahore BISE’s IT incharge Mian Tariq Mehmood and controller examinations Anwar Ahmad, Punjab information technology board chairman Umar Saif Khurram and director general Naeem Waqar Qureshi also appeared before the commission and recorded their statements.

Ahmadis and Ahmadiyya Muslim ( Hatred )



A female Ahmadi student of the final year has been expelled byCOMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT) Lahore. When contacted by Al Ufaq, Mr. Rasheed Ahmed Khan, the Registrar of the institute denied any connection of the removal with the student’s faith. “Rabia Saleem has been expelled for violating the discipline of the Institution and not complying with the rules and regulation.” he added. Mr Khan also declined to provide a copy of the notice that was served to the student and also refused to provide any more details.

Meanwhile Al Ufaq when approached other sources it was confirmed that Rabia Saleem was accused of Blasphemy by student wing of the terrorist organization Tahaffuz-e-Khatam-eNabuwwat. Prior to this incident members of the same organisation displayed posters and banners containing hate against Ahmadis and Ahmadiyya Muslim Community throughout the Campus.


Event on Facebook

The students of the same organization were also found propagating hate against Rabia Saleem and other Ahmadi students. A Facebook event was also launched to pressurize COMSATS management and to terrorize Ahmadis.

Another student Ms. N.S when contacted by Al Ufaq said, “Rabia removed a page from hostel door which had words against Qadianis. She is a Qadiani herself. The hostel guard saw her removing the poster. He then exploited the situation and accused her of committing Blasphemy by dishonouring verses of the Holy Quran and sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad. The poster actually did not contain any Ayat or Hadith.”

A Faculty member of COMSATS Mr. S.A made the following remarks over telephone while talking to Al Ufaq, “the matter could have been resolved among them or with the hostel warden but the administration used it for false propaganda against the Ahmadi Student.”

Incidents like these have been reported in the past but no action what so ever has been taken so far by the Ministry of Education or any other State organ for that matter.

Ahmadis have been living in continuous fear and cases of persecution and hate are on the rise.

Details of the incident are still pouring in.

MAO Students



LAHORE:November 24:The MAO College, Lahore, students allegedly continue harassing public transport operators even after the new CNG busses in town went on a partial strike to protest the students ‘hooliganism’.

It was expected that the college administration would take matters seriously and realize that the whole city had to suffer because of a few students. However, the college administration seems to have not taken the issue seriously. The new busses recently brought to the city - and very eloquently inaugurated by the Punjab chief minister - have not yet resumed their services from 7:00 am till 9:00 and 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm. This partial strike was announced after the transport owners, Foton, took up the case of MAO students beating up the buss crew and damaging the buss after they refused free travel to all students. LTC chairman Khawaja Ahmed Hassaan tried his level best to convince the transport owners to reconsider their decision of partial strike and assured prompt and strict action, including police involvement. The transport company’s top brass, however, did not take their decision back and maintained that, until they saw a visible change in the practices of the students on their routes, they would not call off the partial strike.

The college students are still free to behave the way they want in front of the college gate right after the college hours to come to an end. The role of the college administration is absent in taming the matters as the students virtually block the main road every day, standing right in the middle of the road and stop almost every buss or wagon that comes along.

The buss crew cannot refuse whatever the students demand: there should is no limit to the number of students willing to travel by public transport vehicles. In case, buss or wagon crew refuses or even objects to any of these demands they are taken to task.

There have been instances in the past when public transport crew was seriously injured after they showed ‘defied’ the students demands.

Veteran Transport Owner Arshad Khan Niazi also confirmed the fact and said that he had had all sorts of problems on this route due to the MAO College students. He said that the college route and the Diyal Singh route were the most troublesome areas for all transporters. He encouraged the college administration to play a role in curtailing the activity. However, he criticized the Foton for its partial strike, saying that the transport company should have negotiated and tried to solve the matter.

MAO College spokesperson said that the personnel causing all the problems were not bonafide students of the college and were in fact people defiling the name of the college by posing as the students of the institution. He said that the particular buss stop in front of the college infamous for the activity was not only used by MAO college students.The news.

Teacher only giving 20 odd minutes to the students they teach in schools and colleges

Karachi, Recently a study survey on the fundamental teaching, learning and management practices at schools in seven districts of Sindh has revealed that 70 per cent primary school teachers give just 15 minutes to each subject in a 35-minute class daily. While 20 per cent teachers educate students for more than 20 minutes in each class of 35-minute duration, while the remaining 10 per cent offer even less than five minutes.

These findings were shared with educationists, executive district officers, government officials, the media and other guests at a seminar held at the Aga Khan University`s Institute for Educational Development (AKU-IED) office on Tuesday. Sindh education and literacy department additional secretary Mohammad Shariq was the chief guest. The baseline study conducted by the AKU-IED under the Strengthening Teacher Education in Pakistan (STEP) project covered 196 schools and over 6,000 students from classes IV and V in Thatta, Hyderabad, Tando Mohammad Khan, Tando Allahyar, Matiari, Khairpur and Sukkur.

It gathered information on student populations and prevailing teaching, learning and management practices in these schools as well as data on student learning achievements in four core subject areas i.e. mathematics, science, English and social studies. The study showed that only 56 per cent of the enrolled students attended classes regularly while others were either not regular or remained absent. The overall performance of students was found to be very poor in both classes, where only 17 per cent students obtained passing marks. Girls, however, performed better than boys in all subjects though it was found that they were not encouraged or given equal opportunity in classroom activities.

Three types of questions were asked from students; multiple choice questions, constructed response questions and extended response questions. Students performed relatively well in the multiple choice questions. But their performance was poor when evaluated for their reading, comprehension and writing skills.

The performance of students in Khairpur, Matiari and Sukkur was found to be better as compared to that of students in Tando Mohammad Khan and Tando Allahyar. The failure rate was also found to be considerably high at the primary level. The findings were positively correlated with the level of the facilities available at schools in terms of infrastructure and human resources. They also indicated that leadership and management skills among head teachers were either unsatisfactory or very basic at best.

STEP project coordinator Dr Takbir Ali said: “We all seem concerned about children who are `out of school`, but little concern exists about the many girls and boys who are `out of education` despite being in school.” The study suggested enhancing teachers` morale, involving the community at various levels and improving head teachers` capacity to perform. It recommended establishing a province-based examination regulatory authority for primary and elementary schools to ensure standardized exams and periodic testing, focusing on quality across schools and districts.
