Rs800m earmarked for SMIU's new campus
Karachi: The vice chancellor of the Sindh Madrassatul Islam University (SMIU) said on Monday the Sindh government had allocated Rs800 million for the new campus of the university through its Annual Development Programme.

The new campus will be set up in the Education City on 100 acres of land, which the government has given the university for free.

Speaking at a press briefing on 'Past, Present and Future of SMIU' at a hotel here, Dr Muhammad Ali Shaikh said the SMIU was going to construct a 15- floor SMIU Tower on a plot, which is currently under the occupation of land grabbers in the vicinity of the university's present campus.

He said the SMIU was the first public-sector university in the country that had air-conditioned classrooms, latest computer labs, a modern library, a television studio, an FM Radio studio, an auditorium and the Jhoonagrah Hall.

The vice chancellor said the SMIU was imparting market-oriented education to its students so that they could easily avail jobs in the country as well as abroad.

"SMIU's girls and boys model schools are also working very well, but we are placing special emphasis on these sections too to make them model schools in their real sense."

Talking about the problems faced by the university, he said a big portion of the SMIU's land worth of billions of rupees had been encroached.

About 62 shops had been constructed on the SMIU's land, defacing its beauty and creating problems with the smooth working of the university and its two model schools.

The Higher Education Commission gave the university Rs20million last year and during the current financial year it has given Rs5million to it. Besides, the HEC has also given Rs2.5million for need-based scholarships for SMIU students.

Speaking of the history of the Sindh Madrassatul Islam (SMI), the vice chancellor said the vision behind its foundation was of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan and it was materialised by Khan Bahadur Hassanally Effendi and supported by Justice Amir Ali.

He said Sir Syed Ahmed Khan was a friend of Effendi, and during a visit to the SMI plot prior to the construction of the main building, he had told Effendi that "this plot is insufficient for the institution".

Effendi, he said, replied: "It is spread over eight and half acres of land". To which Sir Syed said, "Hassanally, it is sufficient for school, but you besides school think about college and then university."

Shaikh said now the dream of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan had been materialised by getting university status for the SMI in 2012 with the support of President Asif Ali Zardari, Chief Minster Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan and the then provincial education minister and education secretary.

"Actually, Mr Hakeem Mohammad Saeed, the then Sindh governor, had given charter of university to SMI with the name of 'Jamia Quaid-e-Azam Sindh Madressatul Islam' in 1993 through an ordinance, but the ordinance lapsed as it could not be passed from the Sindh Assembly as an act within the required time of three months," the VC said.

After that, he said, a committee headed by Jameel Jalibi was formulated by the Sindh government in 1998 to award university status to the SMI.

"Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto during her visit to SMI in March 1999, before her self-exile had also pledged that whenever she will come into power, the Alma Mater of Quaid-e- Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and his grandfather Sir Shahnawaz Bhutto will be given university status," Shaikh said.

Recalling the association of Quaid–e- Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah with his Alma Mater, he said he had bequeathed one third of his property to the SMI through his last will and had inaugurated Sindh Madrassa College on June 21, 1943.

He said that after the creation of Pakistan, some families of those who had migrated from India had been provided temporary accommodation in the Sindh Madrassa buildings.

Due to it, the classes of SMI were being run in three shifts. At that time the Quaid-e-Azam had also visited the SMI, he added.

The vice chancellor said that in the later days, the SMI condition stared to deteriorate, and in 1972 it was nationalised by the then government. In 1974, the federal government took over its control by declaring it "national heritage".

After that the SMI worked under the control of the federal government up to 2011 when it was again given back to the Sindh government due to the devolution policy of the government under the 18th Constitutional Amendment.

After becoming university in 2012, besides good traditions the SMIU inherited numerous problems also, which were left unresolved by the previous managements of the institution as well as by some governments, he said. Shaikh said that despite these problems, the SMIU was taking efforts to make itself as one the best universities of the world. The news
