Protection of and peaceful environment for 260,000 students appearing in the Higher Secondary School Certificate examination is the joint responsibility of the city administration and the Board of Intermediate Education Karachi, said the Karachi commissioner on Monday.

 

Chairing a meeting to review the arrangements for the HSSC exams scheduled to begin on May 16, Commissioner Shoaib Ahmad Siddiqui said foolproof security would be ensured at more than 90 exam centres, 12 of which have been identified as sensitive and 12 others as most-sensitive.

 

Siddiqui said police contingents would man sensitive exam centres and Rangers personnel would be deployed at most-sensitive centres.

 

He said a focal person from the Karachi police of DSP (deputy superintendent of police) rank or above would closely coordinate with the BIEK to ensure foolproof security so that entry of no unauthorised person is allowed in the premises of any of the centres.

 

Following a detailed presentation by BIEK Chairman Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai, the commissioner said senior officials of the Karachi Electric Supply Company would be approached to ensure uninterrupted power supply to the designated exam centres.

 

He said the KESC would also be requested to temporarily restore power supply to the schools that have failed to pay their bills for the period during which the HSSC exams would be held.

 

He also said the BIEK in tandem with the city administration would arrange for standby generators for ensuring uninterrupted electricity at the exam centres.

 

In consideration of the complaints forwarded by parents and hijab-wearing students, the media will not be allowed to enter any centre where female candidates are taking their exam, added the commissioner.

 

The BIEK chairman said the board had already made strict arrangements for ensuring secrecy of the question papers and their safe delivery to exam centres.

 

“Foolproof security arrangements have been made to ensure that the question papers are not leaked out,” he added.

KARACHI – Taking notice of complaints about the misuse of practical journals of the matriculation classes’ students, Board of Secondary Education Karachi (BSEK) has decided to collect the practical journals from the public and private schools, and deposit at the board office.
The board administration will further deem over the matter to resolve the issue and take out the middle way to facilitate the schools, said BSEK Controller Examination Nauman Ahsan while talking to The Nation.
He said that the decision was taken to enhance the transparency and quality of the examinations’ results, as there were some reports that the used practical journals were resold in the city’s market, while some private schools allegedly providing these journals to the markets. He said that numbers of reports regarding the misuse of practical journals by private schools were received at the board describing that the practical journals of previous years are being sold in the market. He said that the administration of the board was thinking over the issue and the middle way will be taken out within one or two days. He rejected the allegation that board is going to make money illegally by selling these journals.
BSEK PLANS TO EARN RS3 MILLION ILLEGALLY: On the other hand, some private schools associations have condemned the decision of Board of Secondary Education Karachi, and termed it as illegal, unjustified and against the sanctity of the education institutions.
Some private schools associations have reservations about the board’s decision, and pointed out that what kind of achievement the board wants to obtain by collecting around 400,000 practical journals from students. Criticizing the board’s decision, President Peak Private Schools Association, Sindh, Haider Ali said that BSEK has taken the illogical and unique decision, and said that board has bad intentions behind the decision. He said that board has no place to dump the large numbers of practical journals, while these journals will finally be sold, which will benefit the board of Rs.3000000. He said, “Board of Secondary Education Karachi has shown disbelief over the educational institutions; the board administration has insulted educational institutions, while this is the matter of only three marks. Earlier, deputy head examiners used to go every school for inspection of journals and laboratories etc.”
The peak president has warned the administration of the Board of Secondary Education Karachi that practical journals would not be submitted to the board office at any coast, and demanded that the board administration must take back its unjustified decision.

Extrajudicial or accidental? the killing of a seminary student allegedly by the firing of Frontier Constabulary (FC)

0

KARACHI – As the police officials tried their best to distance themselves from the controversy surrounding the killing of a seminary student allegedly by the firing of Frontier Constabulary (FC) personnel, the three arrested paramilitary soldiers were shifted to an undisclosed location from the Quaidabad police station.
Reportedly, high-ups of area police and FC held a meeting at the Quaidabad police station to devise a strategy to save the three paramilitary soldiers and it was decided that the police should show the incident as an accident.
While the seminary officials claimed the FC soldiers had opened straight fire at the unarmed students, the police gave different statements apparently to save the three FC men and term the student’s killing as accidental.
With no one in the police department ready to comment on the issue, the arrested FC personnel were shifted to undisclosed location on the excuse of presenting them before the FC high-ups.
Talking to Pakistan Today, Quaidabad SHO Nasir Mishwani said he had no idea what happened in Landhi No 22 as “he was on leave for two days”.
While Quaidabad police station’s Head Mohrar ASI Nasir Khan said the SHO had gone to the spot with his party, Malir SP Zahid Hussain Shah, when approached for comments, said he did not know exactly what had happened.
To a question, he replied that he did not know whether it was accidental or an extrajudicial killing but the FC men were arrested and would be presented before the court for legal proceedings. “I do not even know where the arrested FC men are,” he added.
Madrassa-e-Darul Quran Supervisor Maulana Muhammad Tayab claimed that the FC soldiers opened straight firing at the unarmed seminary students when they resisted the arrest of their colleagues.
Accusing the police for not telling the reality to save the FC men, he alleged that the paramilitary soldiers abused students when they retaliated to baton-charge and then opened fire.
“First FC Hawaldar Khursheed came down heavily on a mason engaged in construction work over the placement of the sand crushing machine on the road,” Tayab said.
“As Rehman came out of the seminary and asked him to take an alternate route while excusing for disturbance, the FC man instead warned the labourers to take away the machine from the street within 10 minutes.”
“When the students told him it was not possible, he started beating them and also called his two colleagues. Two more soldiers arrived at the spot and resorted to baton-charging the students,” the seminary supervisor said. “The FC men tried to arrest two brothers, Fazle Rabi and Fazle Azeem, but when they resisted, the law enforcement personnel opened straight fire, killing Rehman and injuring four others.”
Qari Fazal, the brother-in-law of Rehman, told Pakistan Today that the deceased was an “Aalim-e-Din” and had just completed his Hifz-e-Quran from the seminary.
On Sunday, the seminary had held an event to award the students with their degrees and he and his family was invited in this event.
He said that his father had arrived from Batgram, Hazara District to attend the event a few days ago.
Case Investigation Officer (IO) Saleh Muhammad Marwat said when a police party reached the spot, the people were thrashing the FC personnel. The police took the soldiers to the police station.
“The FC men claimed that they resorted to aerial firing when the seminary students tried to snatch their weapons,” he added.
Marwat said the post-mortem report of the deceased reveals that the victim had received a bullet at a 60-degree angle. “There are many buildings in the congested street and it was believed that the causality took place due to the bullets rebounding off from the buildings, as when a bullet strikes any solid surface, it deflects with the same speed,” he claimed.

Time to learn the SIGN language noise abatement measures and environment friendly policies

0

LAHORE – If the Punjab government does not execute the noise abatement measures and environment friendly policies on exigent basis to minimise noise pollution there is ample chance that about one million people Lahore would lose their hearing ability permanently in the coming years,” otolaryngologists have warned. “At early stages, people have to be very careful as they cannot judge if they are slowly losing their hearing ability.
They should occasionally consult concerned doctors if they find it difficult to understand speech under audible radius,” they said, adding that owing to high sound intensity of above 85 decibel (db) in major residential areas of the city, more than 80 percent of the population was exposed to harmful loud sound levels while seven to eight percent adults aging 20 to 50 have permanently damaged hearing.
According to standard guideline, the noise pollution should not exceed 55 decibel in residential areas but the available data reveals that the sound levels are 65 to 90 decibel in all the residential areas of the city. The reason behind this nasty noise pollution is lack of staffers at the Environment Protection Department. The police have also failed to control noise pollution and have lost impetus to execute policies for diminishing traffic noise.
“Besides exposure to loud noise, congenital disorders and infections like mumps, measles and meningitis and the use of substandard drugs also contribute to the damaging of the ears,” say Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialists.
Talking to Pakistan Today, Dr Irfan Mughal said the noise pollution was a major source of damaging the delicate cells of the inner ear and noise-induced hearing loss occurs gradually without any pain. He said a person experienced ringing in the ears known as tinnitus or difficulty in hearing and this temporary threshold shift could become permanent if preventive measures were not taken. He said noise pollution not only damage hearing but it could also be a cause of increase in blood pressure, digestive disturbances and a rise in heart beat and breathing. “In some cases, doctors find complaints of migraine headaches among patients due to noise pollution,” he said, adding that the biggest contributors to noise pollution in the city were pressure-horns used in buses, wagons, cars and even motorcycles.
A child specialist and Sir Ganga Ram
Hospital Deputy Medical Superintendent Dr Masood Akhter Sheikh told Pakistan Today that children were easy victims of noise pollution. He said that children usually watched and listened music in higher volume and this could also cause hearing damage. “Furthermore, noisy environment can harm children when they find difficulty in concentrating their studies and that can naturally lead to long-term learning problems,” he said, adding that some antibiotics that had ototoxic elements could also cause hearing loss. He said youngsters also use headphones to listen music in high volume and this is also another cause of damaging hearing.
He said people could check their ability of hearing while using mobile phones as it was experienced by the lot of people that they could not pick the voice of other person while walking in noise places. He said there were many ways to check level of hearing ability and a few of them are that when one leaves a noisy place, he feels buzzing in the ears, difficulty to understand people and difficulty in understanding speech.
A psychiatrist Dr Ijaz Haider said noise pollution could create negative impacts on the psychology of human being. He said the most direct impact of noise pollution was on one’s mood as it created irritation and depression in people that could lead to disturbance of one’s sexual life and social interactions. He said sleeping time could also be disturbed by noise pollution and other recreational activities and some patients he observed started to prefer staying at home to avoid social functions such as marriage ceremonies owing of noise pollution. Muddassar Ali, a focal person of an NGO attached to environment related issues, said the EPD was not adequately trained to check noise pollution in different parts of the city and this situation aggravated when traffic police and EPD could execute noise abatement measures

Islamic calligraphic paintings display by eminent artist Muhammed Azeem Iqbal at the Louvre Gallery

0

Expression of love and devotion to Quran
ISLAMABAD: A collection of stunning Islamic calligraphic paintings by eminent artist Muhammed Azeem Iqbal was put on display at the Louvre Gallery on Thursday.

The show primarily focussed on the messages of peace and harmony through Quranic verses and letters.

Azeem uses various mediums like leather, stone, wood, bamboo, gold, bronze, copper and hand-crafted paper blended with Aabe Zamzam to create beautiful pieces.

He employs numerous traditional arts to embellish his work with decorative motifs that not only visualise beauty of his work but also capture the spirit of words on canvas.

The calligraphic pieces are decorated with floral and geometrical patterns in an oriental tradition, while the technique of collage is used in the broader sense to complete a crafty art panel.

Azeem Iqbal is a self-taught artist and gets his inspiration from nature, with a belief that calligraphy is a field of love and devotion.

He has participated in several national and international exhibitions, including golden jubilee celebrations at National Art Gallery in 1998, National Assembly of Pakistan in 1999 and Aiwan-e-Saddar in 2000.

His latest artworks capture the golden period of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to different eras of the Islamic civilisations and the present century.

The large-size panels used in the work are the example of crafty art amalgamated with the masterly executed calligraphy lines, sculptural and monumental innovations and antiquity.

“Islamic calligraphy has strong components of communicative vehicles in the shape of its words in all the known languages of the world, which is governed by strict rules,” said Azeem Iqbal, while talking to APP.

“My creativity portrays divine rhythmic beauty and exaltation in the spiritual domain. I have introduced a unique and new dimensional style in the Islamic calligraphy, covering the golden era of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to the present century,”
ISLAMABAD – Calligraphy, historically used for the means of preservation of Quranic text, is one of the most revered forms of Islamic art. Practiced in Pakistan for years, artistic geniuses like Sadequain brought the art form into the mainstream.
Gallery Louvre (GL) on Thursday opened its doors for an exquisite contemporary calligraphic display, furniture and jewellery items by a noted artist Muhammad Azeem Iqbal for remembering the Muslim heritage.
Iqbal’s Calligraphy pieces displayed in this exhibition are like Dostoyevski’s works with the profundity of thoughts. It is a Japanese ‘NOH’ theatres’ soul searching for a concrete epiphany of the divine, and with such rapid changes of modes and style that remind one of the greatest innovators’ Pablo Picasso.
The panels displayed in the gallery dare even the most casual onlooker to skip over. The minute one glances at the pieces of art, he finds himself bewitched by the succession of grandly conceived and masterly executed calligraphy lines, the sculptural and monumental innovations so beautifully intertwined. The antiquity is symbolised by charred wood and the sanctity imbued with “Aab-e-Zamzam”
Azeem’s panels are not calligraphic pieces in its puritan sense. “It also has got nothing to do with the critic’s description of three hundred and fifty different forms of calligraphies, wherein each form has its own creation. And, where the stress is less on the structural variations then on the meanings of the written words which are used primarily to express feelings, emotions, thoughts, wishes, desires, commands, pleasure and so forth.”
Islamic Calligraphies have strong components of communicative vehicles in the shape of its words in all the known languages of the world, which are governed by strict rules. The observance of these rules enables the word to achieve its utilitarian function – that is to communicate. In the hands of an artist like Iqbal, however the rules are imbued with the subjective aesthetics and these subjective aesthetics are an important element is iqbal’s work.
For the pure visual effect like an orientalist, Azeem has used numerous traditional arts to embellish his work. These decorative arts are used not only to visualize beauty of the works but also to capture the spirit of the written words. The deeper meanings as the artist perceives it.
Azeem’s calligraphies are decorated with floral and geometrical patterns in the oriental tradition. The technique of collage is used in the broader sense to complete a crafty art panel. As such Azeem Iqbal’s panel is a fixture of ten twenty.
Aleena Saeed, the curator of the Gallery Louvre while talking to Pakistan Today said that Azeem Iqbal’s artwork depicted the golden period of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) to different eras of Islamic civilizations to the present century.
“The artist has adeptly used various mediums like leather, stone, wood, bamboo, gold, bronze, copper and hand crafted paper using Aabe Zamzam (the holy water) to create beautiful art pieces,” Saeed added. The exhibition will continue at Gallery Louvre, House No. 8, Street No. 41, F-6/1, till March 8.

Akbar began painting a decade or so ago to express his emotions and sensitivities through colours and paints.

He is an absolutely self-taught painter and was able to express himself passionately and vividly through his paintings. “I paint whatever pleases me and is a source of relaxation for my soul,” he said.

In a remarkably short period of time, Akbar has managed to develop a signature style that is quite unique. The main subjects of his paintings are long-limbed, languorous women with secretive eyes and brooding expressions under the ever-present moon. Further, he uses birds, trees, fruits and water as symbols of life and hope.

Akbar’s work received praise and admiration at different exhibitions in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and New York. staff report

LAHORE: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), under its flagship health programme ‘Family Advancement for Life and Health (FALAH)’, held a seminar titled ‘Institutionalisation of the Birth Spacing Paradigm in Punjab’ on Thursday.

The seminar was organised in collaboration with the Population Council and was aimed at discussing the impact of birth spacing on society.

Representatives of the Punjab government, USAID, donor organisations, educational institutions, NGOs, and civil society members attended the seminar.

Speaking on the occasion, Adviser to the Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Zakiya Shahnawaz said that hard work and a right approach were needed to promote the concept of birth spacing in society. She said that women and men in rural areas should be approached to make the programme a success.

Appreciating the efforts of USAID and the NGOs concerned, Zakiya said, “We all have to be partners in this programme and work together in order to move forward.”

She also highlighted the indispensable nature of family-planning and limiting the size of family by making effective use of birth spacing.

Addressing the participants, USAID Health Development Officer Nora Madrigal said that one woman died during childbirth every three minutes in Pakistan. The USAID-funded project aims to improve maternal and child health by introducing the innovative concept of ‘Birth Spacing Saves Lives’ and promoting healthy timing and spacing in pregnancies, she said, adding, “The project worth $60 million will train healthcare providers in reproductive healthcare solutions.”

Highlighting maternal and child healthcare as the organisation’s priority, Nora said that USAID would continue to support similar projects aimed at improving health and well-being of mothers and children in Punjab.

Punjab Population Welfare Department Secretary Javed Akhtar also spoke on the importance of a paradigm shift of birth spacing through the USAID-FALAH project.

He also highlighted proposed methods of improvement in the set-up of the provincial Health Department that would make it more integrated and knowledge-oriented and its future policies “evidence-driven”.

Punjab Health Task Force Chairman Saeed Elahi also acknowledged FALAH’s contribution to Pakistan’s family-planning debate.

Former federal minister and JJ Media Chairman Javed Jabbar said that under the FALAH project, substantial amount of communication and advocacy material had been developed in consultation with health and population professionals and other stakeholders to successfully achieve the objectives of the project aimed at promoting birth spacing in Pakistan.

He said the material was being used effectively to create awareness among the masses and impart training to healthcare officers.

He said the seminar was organised in order to provide a comprehensive briefing on FALAH’s Communication, Advocacy and Mobilisation (CAM) strategy and its Information, Education, Communication (IEC) materials, meant to promote the concept of birth spacing at national, provincial and district levels. The seminar was followed by a working group session, the findings of which were presented and discussed at length by the participants.

Punjab Health Secretary Arif Nadeem was the chief guest at the event, who acknowledged the work of participants and said that the feedback received at the seminar would benefit future communication policies of the province.
