Appointments in Chitral varsity challenged

Fazle Raqib, the petitioner, had approached the chief minister and other authorities of the province to take action against the allegations but to no avail. His counsel Barrister Waqar Ali, Syed Muhammad Shah, Amir Ali and Shahid Ali Yaftali  contended that under the law a university teacher must have at least 18 years of education, two years’ teaching experience besides research work to their credit. However, the selection board of the new university hired candidates who did not meet the requirements of the Higher Education Commission. The appointment of the project director of the university, Prof Badshah Munir Bukhari, has also been challenged in the PHC. The  court has issued notice for March 28. Muhibullah Terichvi Advocate, the counsel for Prof Dr Ismail Wali, maintained before the court that Mr Bukhari was appointed on the PD post on the recommendation of a member of the provincial assembly (MPA) in violation of rules. He contended that the name of his client (Mr Wali) was on top of a list prepared and sent by the Higher Education Department to the chief minister for selection of one of them while Mr Bakhari’s name was not included in the list at all. He said the chief minister was bound to pick one name from the list for appointment as the PD of the new university but Mr Bukhari was hired for the post bypassing the list, which was against the set rules.]]>

    As per Higher Education Commission, minimum criteria for appointment of lecturer is M.Sc. or BS i.e. 16 years of education and not 18 years of education. This can easily be verified by visiting HEC website and downloading faculty appointment criteria.

    Good move by Fazle Raqeeb. He has been deprived of his due right in gross violation of HEC rules. Despite over two years of teaching experience at University level and having M.Phil and PhD at last stage,he has been sidelined by Bukhari sahib for the sake of his blue eyed boys. Mr.Bukhari should bear it in mind that his days at the campus seem to be numbered as the court is likely to revoke his appointment soon.

    GOOD JOB. HOPE FOR THE BEST.

    I think it is batter for Bukhari to vacate the position, before the court order. Otherwise, he is going to lose the case for sure, as Ismail wali is senior and much more talented candidate for the said position, and his win in the court is for sure ..
