Punjab study Latest News - Thu, 04/28/2016 - 15:08

Lahore:April 28:Dr Zaheer Ahmed Siddique, 82-year-old poet and professor of Persian Language, has set an inspiring precedent of generosity by donating his approximately Rs 140 million land and Rs 5 million lifetime cash savings to the Government College University, Lahore Endowment Fund Trust (GCU-EFT) for the scholarships of financially-challenged students.

According to a press release issued Wednesday, Prof Siddique, author of 52 books, which include Pakistan’s first Persian-to-Urdu Dictionary, handed over Rs 5000,000 cheque of his savings to Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah, EFT Executive Committee President Iqbal Z Ahmed and Secretary Dr Khalid Manzoor Butt Obraye at a ceremony at the university’s syndicate committee room. Announcing donating his 28-Kanal land to GCU, Prof Siddique said he had initiated a legal process to transfer the land to the university. However, he also gave an option that the money could be transferred to the GCU-EFT after the sale of land which now values more than Rs 140 million.

Prof Siddique is a proud father of three children. His son, Naveed Siddique, is the adviser to Bill Gates at Microsoft, while her daughter is the Professor of English Literature at the FCC University, Lahore. His younger son works at an executive post with a multinational company in Pakistan. Speaking on the occasion, Vice Chancellor Prof Shah revealed that the ‘great’ and ‘inspiring’ Dr Zaheer Ahmed Siddique, having more than 50-year meritorious services in research, administration, and teaching for GCU, had been donating all his salary to the GCU Endowment Trust since long for the fee of deserving students who could not afford their academic expenses. The VC said that the world over nations had progressed by the mean of developing their universities and research institutes but unfortunately in Pakistan the culture to support or donate your property to an education institution had yet not developed. However, he said, Prof Siddique, has set a precedent which, he hoped, “other would also follow.” Prof Zaheer is not a rich person at all, and all he had, has donated to the GCU Endowment Fund.

Handing over the cheque donation to the vice chancellor, Dr Zaheer said: “This wealth belongs to the Almighty Allah and he is returning it to Him.” He believed that the best philanthropic act in the contemporary world was to make arrangements for quality education for a deserving student so that he could realise and live up to his dreams. I have donated what I had and now I just wanted to devote the remaining time of my life to writing”. GCU Endowment Fund Trust Secretary Dr Khalid Manzoor Butt said GCU is the only public sector university in Pakistan to have an active endowment fund trust, which gives scholarships worth more than Rs 20 million to deserving students every year. He said that the endowment fund never spent the principle amount but the profit, they earned from the principal amount, was spent on financially-challenged students. Expressing gratitude to Prof Siddique, Iqbal Z Ahmed said that the endowment fund trust of Harvard University, US alone stood at 37.6 billion dollars and this was what made the America superpower. He said the culture to donate property to universities would strengthen the education system of the country.The news.

Punjab study Latest News - Thu, 04/28/2016 - 15:06

Lahore:April 28:The Punjab University students staged a protest demonstration on donkey carts, in which hundreds of students took part against the university administration.

According to a press release issued here on Wednesday, IJT organied the protest demonstration from Islamic Centre to VC office in which hundreds of male and female students participated. They staged the demonstration in a unique way on donkey carts against the administration. They were carrying placards on which their demands were written.

PU Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) President Usama Naseer, addressing the rally, said that students had deep concern over the university security issues, i.e. mobile and purse snatching. He said the girls’ harassment by male security guards in the name of security was also of grave concern. He said that despite spending a huge amount of money on building university walls and its prerequisites, still the university had worse security conditions. He added that collection of 'bhatta' in the name of parking fee was unacceptable. He also said that fixed mess bill charges of Rs 3,300 were being charged from every female student irrespective of the fact she ate or not.

Moreover, abounding hygienic problems and low quality food in the girls hostel mess is causing many problems, he alleged.

He said that the students' demands for laptops, increase in the number of buses and new hostels should be addressed as early as possible.

On the other hand, PU administration tried to dismantle the protest by locking the doors and suspending exams. The administration also displayed notices to take severe action against the participants. Police and security guards were also called in.

Meanwhile, Punjab University Registrar Prof Dr Liaqat Ali has said that the real demand of Jamiat is to reinstate those expelled students who are involved in various incidents of violence on campus which will not be accepted at all.

Instead, the university administration will continue taking disciplinary actions against the students who will take law into their hands, he added.According to a press release, talking to the media outside Vice Chancellor’s office, Prof Dr Liaqat Ali said that around 42,000 students were studying on campus while even a few dozen students did not participate in the demonstration which clearly reflected that the protest had met failure. He said that most of the participants of the protest demonstration were not even students of Punjab University and they were outsiders and were wearing masks to hide their identity. He said that the female faculty members had pointed out that most of the girls in the demonstration were not the PU students.

Prof Dr Liaqat Ali said that Jamiat wanted to participate in the upcoming book fair and IJT’s this hidden demand would also not be accepted. He said that IJT demands were not genuine and were based on lies. He said that the university administration had closed several gates for the protection of teachers, employees and students, and cards were being checked keeping in view the current security situation in the country.

He said IJT wanted to interfere in the security affairs and endanger lives of everybody on campus by demanding opening of the closed gates. He said that the university was not charging any parking fee from students and Jamiat’s this demand was also false. Dr Liaqat Ali said that there were no any complaints regarding food quality in the mess of girls’ hostels. He said that Punjab University had the largest fleet of buses as compared to any other university in Pakistan and the university administration was purchasing new buses every year.

Meanwhile, Punjab University Academic Staff Association President Prof Dr Sajid Rashid and Secretary Dr Mahboob Hussain have called upon Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to take notice of IJT "hooliganism".In a press statement issued here on Wednesday, they said that IJT activists had pushed teachers and used inappropriate words during their protest. They said that a few 'rogue elements' wanted to disrupt peaceful academic atmosphere of the campus. They demanded PU administration not to reinstate the expelled IJT students and cope with such elements with an iron hand.The news.
