Prof. Dr. Nazir A. Mughal, Vice Chancellor, University of Sindh has distributed the promotions and appointments orders’ held in senate hall, University of Sindh.Friday, August 31st, 2012
The University of Sindh Vice Chancellor Dr. Nazir A. Mughal has directed the teachers not to concentrate on those few SUTA leaders who instead of taking their classes stage protest in an attempt to get their personal interest and said the teachers are backbone of the university whereas the future of young generation lies with them; therefore they ought to feel their responsibility of schooling, training and research.
He was addressing the promotions and appointments orders’ distribution ceremony held in senate hall, university of Sindh, after the approval by syndicate on July 18, 2012. The vice chancellor handed over a total number of 170 orders of appointments, promotions and up gradations.
Dr. Mughal said: we are opening new campuses and universities; thus after International University of Peace and Sufism at Bhit Shah, Shaheed Benazir Bhutto International University for women would be inaugurated on September 8, 2012, which is unparallel in the world.
He said he had increased the budget for research so that Sindh University could be brought on No. 01 instead of No. 11 in ranking as with our efforts it jumped to 11 from 112 numbers in the top universities.
The vice chancellor further said the teachers would be sent to Karachi, Punjab and Peshawar Universities to do their MPhil and PhDs for which they should fulfill their basic requirements.
Dr. Mughal said as soon as he received funds from HEC, he would issue scholarships to the teachers for higher education adding that the teachers have to determine whether classes will continue in the better interest of students so that they may not fall on evil times in getting the job on account of declaration of results with delay.
He recalled as saying during his leave acting vice chancellor Parveen Shah was forced to give appointments orders by protesting teachers and on his arrival they wanted to get their cronies posted on administrative side but owing to his refusal SUTA leaders started protest.
Vice chancellor further told that some certain groups had their own interests and some persons wanted to recruit their relatives on important administrative posts in the university; if NGOs based men inducted here, the university will definitely be on sale.
He said he was invited for reading research papers in China, USA and Spain; on his return to Pakistan, the opponent teachers alleged on him as saying he had minted money by illegal means during these visits.
“I think this shows the diminutive mentality of SUTA leaders, if I committed corruption they should come with the proof in syndicate of the university as their 5 colleagues are the part of it. But if they don’t do so even then they had better knock at the door of courts, which is a best way instead of making futile nuisance”. He stated adding that he went through the search committee and succeeded to be selected for the post of vice chancellor and allegations in this regard are also redundant and superfluous.
