ISU bill to be tabled in next Sindh PA session

KARACHI: The Sindh government has announced that it would table a bill to establish International Sufi University in the next session of the Sindh Assembly. This university would be established in Bhit Shah, Matiari district.
“The Sindh government wants to immediately start ISU classes. A bill in this regard will be presented in the Sindh Assembly’s next session for approval,” Provincial Education Minister Pir Mazahar-ul Haq told the media in Bhit Shah after presiding over a meeting to discuss the establishment of the ISU.
“There is a dire need to spread the message of Sufi saints on religious tolerance, love for fellow human beings and the true message of Allah,” he said. The meeting held in Bhit Shah was also attended by Chief Secretary Ghulam Ali Pasha, MPA Amir Ali Shah,
Bhit Shah Beautification Plan Project Director Shafiqur Rehman Paracha, Matiari DCO Saqib Soomro, Information Secretary Mumtaz Shah, Education Secretary Alamudin Bullo, Sindh Antiquity Secretary Kaleem Lashari, Sindhi Language Authority Chairman Fahmida Hussain and Culture Director General Sikandar Panhwar.
It was decided that the initial classes of the ISU would start in the newly-constructed government boys’ high school. An order has been issued to the flood-affected families living in the school to vacate the building and an alternative arrangement for them would be made. The formation of the ISU board of governors was also discussed.
The composition of the board would be completed within a week. A curriculum committee was also formed to finalise the ISU curriculum. It was suggested during the meeting that the ISU could be run on a public-private partnership basis or a private party could alone run the university.
