Teachers stage rally against Punjab government for acceptance of demands
Rawalpindi: The Punjab Teachers Union (PTU) here on Wednesday staged a protest demonstration against Punjab government for not paying teaching allowance approved in budget of 2008-09 by the federal government.
The protest rally started from the office of EDO, Rawalpindi, Committee Chowk, and turned into a demonstration in front of Jang building where PTU leaders addressed the protesting teachers.
The participants of the procession, led by PTU president Dr Chaudhry Saghir Alam, raised slogans against the Punjab government.
The president in his address said that the teachers would stage a protest outside the office of Commissioner Rawalpindi Division in March.
He said that the teachers working in Punjab government schools would also arrange protest demonstrations in different parts of Rawalpindi. The PTU president also said that he would present a memorandum to the commissioner.
He said that the government should meet their demands respecting the verdict of the court. He appealed to the government to appoint government officials in education departments on merit instead of on political intervention. The monitoring system enforced by the government should be abolished, he stressed.
He said that the education sector should be handed over from district government to the provincial government.
He said that the teachers providing religious education to the students like Qaris should be provided facilities equal to the other senior teachers. The intervention of NGOs in educational institutions should be checked and banned, he added.
The president also said that the teachers of the municipal schools should be given equal facilities as enjoyed by teachers of the provincial schools.
He further said that increase in the amount of welfare funds be enhanced and the system of numbers attained for awarding scholarships to the students should be continued. The dearness allowance provided to the teachers should be merged in the salaries of the teachers, he demanded. The News
Alleged blasphemer goes missing following accusation
Lahore: Ahsan Tahami, librarian of Quaid-e-Azam Library, who was allegedly involved in a blasphemy case, has fled from his house along with his family while the administration continues to display posters to search for him, it was learnt.
The complainant, chief librarian Muhammad Taj, who accused Ahsan of blasphemy, has refused to brief media about the incident.
According to the FIR No 163/09 registered under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code, Taj has accused Tahami of uttering blasphemous remarks against the Holy Prophet (PBUH). According to Taj, nine other staff members were eyewitnesses of the incident.
The whereabouts of the accused are not known, as his house in Johar Town has been locked since the day of the incident. The library staff has displayed placards and notices, bearing Tahami's pictures and comments against him. His neighbours said the police raided his house on Tuesday to arrest him, but found him missing.
Muhammad Saeed, an employee of the library, said Tahami used abusive language for the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
Posters: The library administration has displayed posters of Tahami with the title of 'Committer of Blasphemy in the excellency of the Holy Prophet (PBUH)'. Toheed, a student, said this was a sensitive issue, which should be decided by the court. He said only the court could decide wether he committed blasphemy or not, and it was unfair to hold charges against him without proper proof. Daily Times
