KU teachers boycott classes against new varsities law
Karachi:September 06: Teachers at the University of Karachi (KU) will resume their teaching responsibilities today after boycotting classes on Thursday against a controversial new law.
The wave of protests against the proposed amendments in the Sindh Universities Law that started from Karachi has reached Jamshoro, where the KU teachers will attend a session today.
Teachers all over Sindh have been protesting against amendments in the universities law, which they claim is direct interference with the universities’ autonomy. Through this legislation, the powers which were previously enjoyed by the provincial governor will be transferred to the chief minister. Moreover, the government will be allowed to directly interfere in the appointments and policies of the public universities.
We have requested the vice-chancellor to call a meeting of the statutory bodies, the senate, syndicate and academic council on Tuesday,” said Muttahir Ahmed, the president of the Karachi University Teachers Society (KUTS), while speaking to
The society also plans to hold a seminar on the amendments proposed in the new law next week. “This will spread our message and explain to students the reason for our protest,” he said.


On Thursday, the KU teachers stayed away from taking classes as a means to record their protest.


During the day-long protest, the teachers also gathered at the administration block and shouted slogans against the proposed amendments.


Earlier, a number of teachers’ representative bodies from across Sindh had met at the NED University of Engineering and Technology, demanding repealing the new law.


They claimed the latest regulations were against the fundamental concept of a university charter, which “gives full autonomy to manage academic and administrative affairs of the institution”.The news.
