ISLAMABAD (APP) - The teachers community has shown reservations over removal of former Director General, Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) Shaheen Khan and feared that the step will discontinue the implementation process of recently announced package for the teachers. Former DG was replaced by Aurungzeb Rehman, Joint Education Advisor who was appointed as acting DG FDE on Friday by the approval of competent authority. Talking to this news agency, Representative Federal Government College Teachers Association (FGCTA) Professor Tahir informed that soon after the announcement of package for the teachers, Shaheen Khan was removed from her position without any justification. Shaheen Khan, who was appointed as DG FDE few months back, carried out her intensive efforts in fulfilling the longstanding demand of teachers upgradation. The DG was removed with the involvement of some negative elements so that the announced package could not be implemented in true spirit, he added. All the teachers associations of model and federal government educat-ional institutions have strongly opposed the removal of Shaheen Khan and decided to stage protest after eid, if removal orders are not reversed. The associations have appealed to the Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani and Federal Minister for Education Sardar Aseff Ahmad Ali to reverse the decision and get her back on her previous position. An official of FDE on the condition of anonymity told this news agency that the removal of Shaheen Khan at this moment may hamper the implementation of the teachers package announced during Shaheen Khans tenure. Although the new DG Aurungzeb Rehman is a competent and polite man but it will be difficult for a new DG to implement and carry forward the vision of Shaheen Khan and Ultimately, the teachers will have to bear the brunt, the official said. Unfortunately, a bureaucrat is appointed in political and an army personnel in a military regime against the post of DG FDE and educationist are rarely given chance to serve at this position, said Prof Javed, a senior lecturer at a Federal Government College. For the first time, a landmark initiative of upgradation was taken to realise the dream of the teachers but now it seems difficult to make it happen, he said.
