PTI’s ISF challenges Establishment Division intervention in HEC’s affairs


Insaf Students Federation (ISF), the student body of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, has challenged the direct intervention by Establishment Division in High Education Commission, an autonomous body, in Islamabad High Court.
Filling a writ petition in Islamabad High Court (IHC), Insaf Students Federation, made federal government, the HEC chairman, its executive director and Dr Atta ur Rehman, former chairman/founder of HEC as respondents. ISF adopted before the court that HEC was established under the Higher Education Commission Ordinance 2002 and as per law only 18-member commission of the HEC was the appointing authority of the ED.
Central President of ISF, Farrukh Habib, the petitioner along with Ch Arslan, has prayed in the petition to the court to suspend the appointment of new ED.
It was not a matter of an individual but the autonomy of an institution which was playing a vital role for a prosperous Pakistan, he explained. Farrukh Habib said that the petition had been filed through advocate Farrukh Dall.
ISF has also issued a fact paper on
the current issue for the awareness
of masses.
