KARACHI: Sindh Assembly Monday unanimously passed two bills into law by making amendments to renaming two universities as Abdul Sattar Edhi University Karachi and Mohtrama Fatima Jinnah University Hyderabad.
A motion was moved by the Sindh Minister for Parliamentary Affairs and Food Nisar Ahmed Khuhro here for supplementary agenda to introduce some bills including aforesaid bills.
Before presenting the bills, Senior Minister Nisar Khuhro said that the founder of MQM sitting in Britain waved his passport saying that he was a British national and despite that they named universities after him.
But, when he sought help from a neighbouring country a few days ago against Pakistan that is why he presented these bills for amendments.
MQM-Pakistan MPA Faisal Subzwari speaking to this effect said that before naming any university it should be born in mind that the person who is being named is not the enemy of the country.
He endorsed the rename of the university. The PML-F MPA Mehtab Akbar Rashidi said that she do not know why University of Sindh was shifted to Jamshoro from Karachi in past. May be some people were biased.
She asked the assembly before giving name of any person to any institution his or her work be kept in mind.
PTI MPA Khurrum Sherzaman said that today is good day for him. He further said, as a sign of his hatred to founder of MQM, he even do not want to take his name and said that he supports the amendment. -APP
