ISLAMABAD National Assemblys Standing Committee on Education is likely to write a letter to President Zardari who is also the Chancellor of National University of Modern Languages (NUML) to inquire into the incident of thrashing of a lecturer by the university registrar. The committee, which is likely to meet on February 25 after the current National Assembly session is prorogued, would discuss the issue though, apparently, the issue is resolved after the resignation of Brig (R) Obaidullah Ranjha yet the committee does not think it sufficient and would pursue the matter further. The beating of a lecturer, Tahir Malik by NUML Registrar Brig (R) Obaidullah Ranjha over a petty issue had sparked protests at the campus which later compelled the registrar to resign. The committee has also asked the university to present a report of the incident. Abid Sher Ali of PML-N, the Chairman of the committee informed The committee has also summoned the Interior Minister Rehman Malik as he has played a role in the matter. All the people concerned would be required to give their opinion of the issue and the president in his capacity as Chancellor is also answerable to the committee for all the illegalities going on at the campus. Besides the NUML issue, the committee would discuss the compulsory school attendance bill to make primary level education compulsory in all the provinces as currently, three provinces have been following the bill but in Balochistan it is not being followed. The committee would also review the role of Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority (PEIRA), which regulates private schools and issues of teachers working there.
