Jinnah University on notice over denial of degrees to students
Karachi:March 23:The Supreme Court (SC) has directed the chairman of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and the registrar of the Jinnah University for Women over an application of students against the denial of BA degrees by the university’s administration.
The applicants, including Maham Khan, submitted that they were students of the Jinnah University for Women and had completed four semesters’ studies, which were equivalent to the BA (pass) degree.

They alleged that the university administration was declining to award them the degree though they had completed our four semesters’ studies and they had been given the mark sheets.

The students said their mark sheets confirmed that they had qualified for the BA (pass) degree in mass communications, and their score was more than 2.2 GPA, the minimum required criteria fixed by the university.

They alleged that university administration officials, especially the vice chancellor and the registrar, were pressurising them to continue to study and complete a master’s programme, and only then would they be awarded the bachelor’s Degree. They said this was an unjust, unfair and illegal act on the part of the university.

They students said the denial of the degree was “beyond the approach of prudent mind” and the administration of the university was violating its parent act called Jinnah University for Women Act, 1998, particularly the provision of Section 5 (ii) of the act and its own code.

According to the complainants, the university’s Rule 26 mentions that a student registered for a three-year BA/BSc (Hons) degree or a four- year BS degree shall be able to get his/her degree converted into BA/BSc pass degree after the successful completion of all courses in the first and second years. Alternatively, a student of a four years’ programme shall be able to get their degree converted into a BA/BSc/BCom honours degree after the successful completion of all courses of the first, second and third years.

They requested the court to direct the Jinnah University for Women to issue BA and BSc degrees to all students who had passed the requisite four semesters and their score was more than 2.2 GPA, the minimum required criteria fixed by the university, in the larger interest of justice and equity. Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar took notice of the application and directed the HEC chairman and the varsity’s registrar to file their comments on March 29.The news.

International Women Day of United Nations
Islamabad :18 March: Federal Minister for Human Rights Mumtaz Ahmed Tarar has said the government was endeavouring to protect rights of women according to Islamic teachings, social norms of our society and international obligations, says a press release.

Addressing a national conference on women rights titled ‘Gender Equality in Islam’ organised by Universal Interfaith Peace Mission (UIPM) in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Rights to mark International Women Day of United Nations, Tarar said that rural women were our top priority and the government was doing all it can to protect their rights.

Among list of distinguished guests, European Union Human Rights Counsellor Ms Javeria Khan, Dr Amineh Hoti, Director Interfaith Dialogue Centre Islamabad, Mrs Marzia from Baha’I community, Mrs Farha Amjad, Ms Mahwish Sabah, Ms Shabana Kausar as well as religious scholar Allama Sajid Naqvi, Qari Shafeeq Allama Miskeen, Father Jacob Dogra, Mirza Kamal, Bishop Aftab and others were present on the occasion. Universal Interfaith Peace Mission Chairman Allama Dr GR Chishti delivered the key-note address.

Tarar said government was also working on the welfare of vulnerable groups of the society and striving to ensure equal rights for them. For the purpose, he said, the National Plan of Action for human rights is being enforced in the country under the directions of the Prime Minister. Under the action plan a campaign had been launched to bring a positive change in the behaviour of people and counter extremism from our society, he said.

In his welcome address, UIPM Chairman Dr GR Chishti tried to point out the reasons women were deprived of their due rights due to lack of knowledge on part of religious scholars and politicians. He pointed out that at the times of ignorance, the Arabs were the most ignorant people who did all the cruelties and deprived women from their status and rights. Islam at that time (1400 years ago) abolished all the dark practices of the ignorant Arabs and bestowed women with due rights that no any other religion has given so far and thus women in Islam are considered precious and valuable and have been granted recognition, protection, respect, modesty and are honored with integrity, prosperity and due rights in all codes of life. “Islam is a complete code of life not only for men but also for women,” he added.

Quoting various examples from Holy Quran, Dr Chishti spoke at length about the spiritual, economic, social, educational, legal and political rights of women in Islam. “Women has right to be consulted as other family members have right to be consulted. Many people believe that it is folly to act or listen to women’s advice. In fact they themselves are disbelievers and unaware to the sunnah of Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (peace be upon him),” said Dr Chishti.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Amineh Hoti said the objective of observing the International Women’s Day was to make the country’s women self-reliant and provide them with an effective status in the society.

Ms Shabana Kausar encouraged women to also contribute their services in different professional fields to match their women contemporaries in the world.

Ms Mahwish Sabah, was of the view that it is very unjust if anybody is blaming Islam for the present state of suppression of women in the Muslim society. “In fact it is not Islam to be blamed it is because of forgetting the teachings of Islam,” she added. The news.
