LHC directs VC Pir Mehr Ali Shah-Arid Agriculture University appear today
Rawalpindi:The Lahore High Court (LHC), Rawalpindi Bench judge, Justice Ijaz Ahmad Thursday directed the vice chancellor of Pir Mehr Ali Shah-Arid Agriculture University Rawalpindi (PMAS-AAUR) to appear before the court in person to respond to the petition of a female student against a male teacher.

The student (Z) has adopted before the court that she is a student in the Barani Institute of Information Technology (BIIT) that is functioning under the Arid Agriculture University. She has passed the five semesters with good results and now she is in the sixth semester. The student has alleged that the attitude of a visiting instructor (y) was immoral towards her and she also lodged her complaint with the director BIIT.

According to the petitioner, the director BIIT took no action against the instructor. The parents of the students also met with the director and urged him to take some action. The petitioner then lodged a complaint before the VC of the university and appealed before him to take some disciplinary action against the instructor.

The petitioner told the court that after the inquiry was held before the VC, the Director BIIT took side of the teacher and told the VC that her allegations were not based on the facts. On June 2, 2010, the petitioner sent a legal notice to the director BIIT upon which he rusticated the student on July 01, 2010 for two semesters.

Nominating chairman Higher Education Commission, secretary Education Punjab, vice chancellor Arid Agriculture University and director BIIT as respondents, the petitioner has prayed to the court that her rustication is a discriminatory and it would spoil her education career. She has appealed to the court to direct the university to end her rustication and take action against the said instructor.

The LHC bench after hearing from her side directed the VC of the university to appear before the court in person here today (Friday).

In another case, Justice Asad Munir disposed of more than one hundred petitions of the law students, graduated from Al-Mizan Law College, who had been contending before the court against the Pakistan Bar Council (PBC) decision to refuse them issuance of law practitioner licenses.

Al-Mizan Law college is an institution affiliated with the Federal Urdu University (FUU). And as per the PBC, the college is not authorised to impart legal education. Legal counsel for the petitioners adopted before the court that it is not the PBC to decide that which college or university to impart legal education but it is the function of Higher Education Commission.

The LHC bench has directed the students to avail the chance to file an appeal before the PBC. Counsel for the petitioners argued before the court that it is not the matter that some provincial bar council has rejected petitions of the students that they had filed before it for issuance of law practicing licenses but the Punjab Bar Council never entertained their petitions, he said. So there is not a situation when the students would file the case before the PBC.

The LHC bench, however, while disposing of the petitions directed the students to file an appeal before the PBC.The news
