Private schools to no longer pay commercial power tariff
Karachi: Private schools of the city will no longer pay the commercial electricity tariff, as per a recent ruling by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA).

"The move is expected to reduce running costs of schools across Karachi and we are hopeful that the schools will pass on the advantage to parents by cutting down tuition fees," said Sharf-uz-Zaman, chairperson of the Private Schools Management Association (PSMA), at a press conference on Monday.

According to information shared at the presser, there are 17,000 private schools in the city, of which, around 8,000 are registered under the directorate of private education. The change from commercial to domestic tariff will be applicable for the registered schools only.

It was in 1988 when, without any prior intimation, a decision to charge all private schools of the country under the commercial head was announced. A petition was filed at the time and finally, after nearly 25 years, a decision has been made in the private schools' favour.

"We thank the Karachi Electric Supply Company for supporting us," said Zaman, adding that the association is expecting more private schools to register with the directorate to avail this advantage.

"In the absence of sufficient government schools, especially in far-flung and violence-ridden area, these small private schools are rendering a great service by educating underprivileged children who would otherwise have remained illiterate," he said.

Two KU students shot dead near varsity gate
Karachi: Two students of the University of Karachi were gunned down near Maskan Chowrangi, a few metres away from the varsity's IBA gate, in Gulshan-e-Iqbal on Friday evening.

The two were identified as Shadab Hussain and Hamza Naushad, both 27 years old.

Hussain, a resident of Ancholi, was studying mass communication while Naushad was enrolled in the economics department.

SSP East Pir Muhammad Shah said that the two friends had exited the university using its IBA gate and were walking near Maskan Chowrangi when two men riding a motorcycle fired gunshots at them.

The two men suffered multiple bullet wounds and were shifted to the nearby Patel Hospital where they expired.

Their bodies were later shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital.

"We are probing the possibility of the dual murder being sectarian in nature," the SSP said.

Hussain was the grandson of the pesh imam of the Khair-ul-Amal Imambargah, Ghulam Ali Waziri.

The other victim, however, was Sunni.

"Therefore, we are investigating other angles too."

Dr Abdul Haq, the additional police surgeon at the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, said Hussain had suffered two bullets to the chest while Hamza was shot in the face.

Prof Khalid Iraqi, the KU security in-charge who visited the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, said the family and friends of the two victims staged a protest against the law enforcement agencies for their failure to prevent the killing of their loved ones.

The Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen and the Shia Ulema Council condemned the murder of the two students and demanded that the authorities should arrest the killers immediately.

"Yet another precious life has been lost in this spate of target killings," the spokesperson for the Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen said.

"We want the authorities concerned to take concrete steps for bringing the killing of Shia community members to an end."

In a statement, the Shia Ulema Council also urged the authorities to take action against those responsible for the killing of Shia community members. The council said that the killings were meant to provoke sectarian hatred and incite Muslims to fight each other, thereby destabilising the country.

It said anti-state elements should not be allowed to succeed in their nefarious designs.

The dual murder comes a day after eight people were gunned down in different gun attacks in Karachi. It has been three months since the law enforcement agencies launched a crackdown on criminals in the city and arrested several alleged target killers, extortionists and others involved in heinous crimes. But the menace of target killings continues to plague the city. The news

Balochistan University students, teachers in dire straits
Islamabad: About 1,600 employees of the University of Balochistan (UOB) have decided to start begging on the streets of Quetta to grab the attention of the 'concerned' quarters.

According to sources, the largest public sector university is facing threat of closure in the absence of immediate attention by the federal government and the Higher Education Commission (HEC).

As a last resort, the professors of the university have decided to carry begging bowls to the Governor's House, Chief Minister's Secretariat and other key areas of the city to generate funds for the institution.

"We are launching the begging bowl campaign from Tuesday to seek public support for our struggling university," President of Academic Staff Association of UOB Dr Hakimullah said.

He said 465 university teachers and 1200 employees are taking to the streets as they are not getting complete salaries for last six months. "Hundreds of students who have gone on scholarships abroad are also facing extreme difficulties as they are not being paid their stipends in time," he said.

Surprisingly, the HEC Acting Chairman Syed Imtiaz Hussain Gilani is completely unaware of the situation. "I have no information about the financial crisis in the university," Gilani said that when asked about the protest by UOB teachers and staff. He said the higher education institutions are facing financial problems but he is not aware of dire shortage of funds in UOB.

When contacted, Vice Chancellor of the University Professor Dr Abdullah Khan said the university is facing financial problems and the Higher Education Commission and federal government have been informed about the crisis.

"I have told the HEC chairman about the issue and it is hoped that the issue will be resolved," he said adding that some funds have been arranged by HEC and Governor Balochistan for one-time payment of salaries to the staff.

However, Dr Abdullah criticized the university teachers for their strong protest and called for resumption of classes and academic activities in the university. "The protestors are wasting precious time of the 14,000 students who have to appear for examinations within next few weeks," he said.

According to HEC sources, several other universities of the province are also hit by severe funds shortage but so far the management of the commission has failed to resolve the issue as the government has failed to appoint a permanent chairman of the commission.

Three months ago, the commission had formed a Task Force on Balochistan on the proposal of Chief Minister Dr Abdul Malik Baloch to resolve all issues related to the universities in the province. The task force was headed by the Chairman HEC Dr Javaid Leghari. However there has been no further progress over the issue so far and even a single visit of HEC Special Task Force to the province could not be arranged by the ad hoc management of the commission.
