KIU fails to implement court order

GILGIT, July 7: The Karakuram International University has failed to implement the orders of Supreme Appellate Court of Gilgit-Baltistan to set up a law faculty despite a lapse of one year. The Supreme Appellate Court had directed last year the management of the university to set up law faculty to facilitate students of the region. The management had assured the court that it will launch this course as soon as possible but despite the lapse of considerable time it has not started the course for students. “We are pressing them hard constantly to launch this faculty in the university so that we can take admission and could quench the thirst of education but all in vain as they don’t listen to us in spite of court orders,” Shakil Ahmed, a young man, told this correspondent. He said they can run the department easily as manpower is available in the area. He said thousands of those graduates who have completed bachelors are desirous of getting admission in the law but they are disappointed as the university management has failed to do so. “There is not a single department which imparts job-oriented education. They just charge huge fees and distribute degrees to students, who find it very hard to get jobs in the market,” regretted a graduate Burhanuddin. People have demanded of the Higher Education Commission to press Karakuram International University to launch law studies in the area. When contacted Shahid Baig, the registrar of the varsity said due to financial crunch it was not possible for the university to start law classes.]]>
