UAP implemented Peshawar High Court orders providing relief to Prof Qureshi

Prof M Subhan Qureshi is working at University of Agriculture Peshawar. He has got a 35 years experience with extension, research, secretariat and the university.

Besides the routine of hificial assignments he established Dairy Science Park as a registered society for Academea Industry Linkages. We tried to achieve targets under SDGs 2, 3, 4 and 8 covering Food Security, Food Safety, Women Empowerment and Decent Employment to the youth. The efforts were supported by Higher Commission of Pakistan and accepted by CM KP as a Task Force. Three International Conferences and Industrial Exhibitions were held at Peshawar during November 2011, 2013 and 2015 and fourth at Konya Turkey during Nov 2017. Seven consultative workshops were held outside the country on Biorisk Management. Local Enterprenureship Development was supported. However, Prof Zahoor Swati directed Prof Qureshi to withdraw all types of academic support from the DSP we which was not considered logical by the later and hence ignored.

The Vice Chancellor University of Agriculture Peshawar , Prof Noor Pao Khan didn’t support these endeavors and stopped his salary since February 2018 and ignored his four appeals and office notes of the Registrar UAP.

Agricultural University Teachers Association held a three weeks protest on these issues and demanded removal of the Vice Chancellor. Governor KP wAw approached through an appeal but with no response.

Human Rights Commission, Peshawar High Court and other relevant authorities are requested for providing relief.

Registrar Peshawar High Court was requested vide letter dated 30 August 2018, titled, “Complaint against Noor Pao Khan Acting VC UAP” who stopped salary of Prof Qureshi for 7 months. His family was under severe stress and his wife got severe depression and her blood platelets/body weight went down drastically due to liss of appetite. The Court was requested to look into the matter and provide relief. He requested for issuance of advice to the Commandant Campus Police, Peshawar University for launching an FIR against VC for torturing his family through illegal actions. Salary was released after delivery of copy of the letter to Registrar UAP. However wife of Prof Qureshi passed away on 7 Feb, 2019 morning. Inna lillahi wa Inna Ilihi Rajiwoon.

On 19 March, 2019 prof Qureshi retired after serving the provincial government for 22 years and the university for 14 years with his best efficiency and unmatchable contribution. His pension has been withheld till today, 27 April. The Government of Pakistan, Finance Division in their memo dated 3-5-2013, mentioned that the Supreme Court of Pakistan in civil appeal No.48 of 2013 vide its judgement 21-2-2013 has directed to clear the pension cases within two weeks. If there is any delay in the finalization of the cases and matter is brought to the notice of this Court, the head of the concerned department shall also be held liable to the contempt of court. Is the university administration awaiting further losses to the family of Prof Qureshi?

The present Vice Chancellor Prof Jehan Bakht was requested vide letter dated 18 April for release of the pension on the analogy of Prof Munir and Prof Hamayun. A committee was constituted for the purpose headed by Prof Nazir. They recommended fixation of salary of Prof Qureshi at the level of 2013 while for the other two professors the salary was fixed at almost 100% higher rates of 2017. The committee decided on the basis of like and dislike rather than the rule of law. They added to the frustration of the family of Prof Qureshi arising due to death of his wife as a result of non payment of his salary for 7 months by the Ex-Vice Chancellor.

The Vice Chancellor must play his role in rectifying the situation, providing relief to the aggrieved family and presenting a kind image of the university administration before the teachers’ community.

Prof Qureshi submitted petition number 5127-P/2018 in Peshawar High Court for implementation of decision of UAP 95th meeting of the syndicate allowing him alongwith others to get switch backed from TTS to BPS w.e.f. 6-2-2016. The case was fixed for Motion today on 28 May, 2019 and decision was made in favor of Prof Qureshi. FAO-UN Pakistan selected Prof Qureshi as National Consultant Livestock.  Alhamdulillah. UAP Vice Chancellor and Registrar office implemented the Court orders vide Office Order number 153/S-1/UAP dated 7-10-2019 Alhamdulillah, which is highly acknowledged with thanks. Allah take us all out of troubles. Amin.

AUP rejects prof’s request of switchback from TTS to BPS

PESHAWAR, July 08- Despite the decision of the Syndicate and Tenure Track System (TTS) Committee, the management of the Agricultural University Peshawar (AUP) in a move of victimization has turned down the case of Professor Dr. Subhan Qureshi to switch back from Tenure Track System (TTS) to Basic Pay Scale (BPS) and restoration of his salary.

Professor Dr. Subhan Qureshi is the pioneer of the academia, private sector partnership for the development of the livestock sector to guarantee food security in the country.  He is the chairman of Diary Science Park (DSP), which has organized three international two-day conferences so far. Two conferences have been organized in AUP Peshawar while one conference was organized in Turkey last year.

The renowned expert on livestock sector of the country have joined the Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Sciences (FAHVS), Agriculture University Peshawar (AUP) as Professor TTS on 1-8-2013 along with 12 others, with the fundamental spirit of open recognition of merit of the candidates as per Model Tenure Track Process Statutes 2008 – HEC.

However, some senior faculty members including the Professor Qureshi, submitted a joint application for switch back from TTS to BPS, to protect their career benefits.

The request was principally agreed by the Syndicate in their 95th meeting held on 25-10-2016, for switching back TTS faculty to graded position as per statutory proceduPres/provisions.

Six professors were switched back from TTS to BPS vide letter number 627/R/UAP dated 10-2-2017 and one professor later on; while the case of Professor Dr. Subhan Qureshi was also recommended by the DTRC Committee in their meeting held on 2-2-2016 and submitted vide letter No.FAHVS/469 dated 28-3-2016, but was not considered due to reasons betterly known to management of the university.

The Registrar UAP communicated observations of TTS Committee vide letter No.351/S-1/UAP dated 21-6-2018, which were responded vide letter number 5172/LM/AUP dated 22-6-2018, endorsed by the Chairman LM and Dean FAHVS, recommending his switchback from TTS to BPS position and restoration of his salary, stopped since February 2018.

The Professor has now requested the Chancellor of the University, Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for approval of his switchback TTS to BPS and restoration of his salary as per decision of the syndicate, recommendation of the TTS Committee and endorsement of the Chairman Livestock Management Department and Dean FAHVS.

  • And We have sent you (Oh Muhammad) not but as a mercy for the Worlds. (Qur’an, 21:107)

DSP has been introduced as a sacred mission for welfare of people of the Region through generation of self employment and hygienic/Halal food production. The Park has been registered as a Society with the Government of KP, Pakistan and accepted by the United Nations as #UNSDGAction9671. In line with the vision of the Higher Education Commission, the business incubation concepts were integrated into postgraduate research ongoing at the Faculty, shaping up the University – Industry linkages. A biennial series of international workshops was initiated and it continued during November, 2011, 2013 and 2015, each by 450+ delegates, with 100+ technical papers and industrial exhibition. The proceedings were published online/printed and in impact factor journals. The 1st workshop focused on post-flood revival of dairy industry, the 2nd on meat potential of the region and the 3rd on entrepreneurship development for the outgoing graduates. The fourth conference was held at Selcuk University Konya, Turkey Nov 1-5, 2017 with the theme, “Achieving Food Security through Entrepreneurship Development and Biorisk Management”.

Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) have been the sites of international conflicts. The region is mostly mountainous and arid, rich in natural resources, predominantly livestock like sheep, goats, cattle, buffaloes, and poultry. The total value of livestock heads is Rs.1.09 trillion (US $10 billion). However, the huge resource base can neither provide good economic return to the producers, nor quality food to the consumers. These holdings threaten public health safety. The main reasons behinds this state of affairs are poor socio-economic status of the farmers, lack of resources and focus on part of the state institutions, and a hostile marketing system. DSP has been working on generating solutions to these issues.

Emerging industries in milk and meat processing and marketing have been provided technical and Quality Control certification support to relieve legal threats from the District Administration, who focus on price capping of milk and meat rather than quality. Meat shops established on modern lines of hygiene produce quality beef; however such facilities are raided by the government agencies on the basis of higher prices. DSP has been facilitating inspection of such facilities; providing SOPs for quality standards and issuing certificates. Similar services are being extended to private slaughter houses and meat/milk processing centers and other emerging entrepreneurs. Sandia National Lab USA has been supporting DSP under a Biorisk Management Collaboration. Five consultative workshops were held in Amsterdam, Dubai, Bangkok, Puket and Colombo, participated by 70 members/times of DSP; and developed contents on biorisk management into the DVM curriculum in Pakistani Universities and food value chain. Selected faculty members of the DVM degree awarding Universities would be trained in BRM under DSP-SNL collaboration.

The Senior Minister, Local Government, Government of KP chaired a high level meeting held on 3-3-2016 and agreed on proposal of DSP for implementation of an ADP project for establishing a Modern Slaughter House. Consequently, a Summary was initiated for Chief Secretary which was supported by Additional Chief Secretary. A note was initiated by the Senior Minister for Establishment of Task Force on Dairy Science Park which was approved by the Chief Minister on 2-8-2017. Dairy Science Park intends to establish Technoparks in various universities of the country through collaboration with Konya Teknokent and other development, government and private sector organizations.
