THE Lahore High Court chief justice on Monday admonished a dean of the University Of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS) and took serious notice of the irresponsible behaviour of the university’s officials for not giving admission to a disabled student who had secured first position in the merit list five years ago.
Chief Justice Sh Azmat Saeed observed: “Corrupt and idle government officials have destroyed the entire system of the country.” Hafiz Syed Muhammad Ammar had filed the petition in 2007, stating that he had secured 817 marks in Intermediate (FSc) and applied for admission for graduation in the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UVAS).
He secured top position in the merit list displayed by the university administration but the officials of the university dropped his name without giving any reason. Ammar submitted that the UVAS officials had given admission to the candidates who got less numbers after taking bribe from them.
He, then, took admission to Bahauddin Zakariya University (BZU) and successfully completed eight semesters of the DVM course because his petition was not being heard timely by the Lahore High Court.
Dean Faculty of UVAS Prof Naseem Ahmad appeared before the chief justice to explain his position and reasons behind the discrimination against the petitioner by the university officials. He, however, failed to give any satisfactory answer to the CJ’s repeated queries that why Ammar was dropped from the merit list despite the fact the he had secured the top position.
The CJ got angry and remarked: “I want resignation from all those officials who took bribe to accommodate their favourite and deprived Ammar of his well-deserved seat. You have destroyed the life of a disabled boy.”
He further observed that the UVAS officers were so cruel that they did not even spare a disabled guy, and their greediness forced Ammar to study in a city far away from his hometown, Lahore. He said that all delinquent officials should be sent to jail. Prof Naseem Ahamad tendered his apology to the chief justice and requested the court to grant him some time to resolve the issue. The CJ directed him to find out how Ammar could be accommodated in 10th semester of DVM course in the UVAS, Lahore.
