Islamabad: The Supreme Court (SC) has ordered the high courts to refrain from interfering in varsities’ policies on Friday.

In a five-page order, Justice Mansoor Ali Shah of the Supreme Court (SC) nullified the PHC verdict after approving the appeal of Khyber Medical University (KMU).

In the verdict, the apex court ordered the high courts of the country to refrain from interfering in policies, regulations and other affairs of the varsities except for a violation of basic rights.

The top court said that the education experts of the varsities could make better decisions regarding their students. “The primary task of judges is making decisions in accordance with the law instead of giving rulings on the basis of personal preferences. Democracy is established on the basis of enforcing the law,” it added. 

The SC observed that Aimal Khan had admitted the mistake of attempting the exam paper on behalf of another student.

The top court reinstated the three-year academic disqualification of a varsity student Aimal Khan who had illegally appeared in the exams on behalf of another student. Following the illegal act, Aimal Khan had been disqualified for continuing her studies for three years by the KMU administration.

The Supreme Court issued the directives after declaring the Peshawar High Court’s verdict null and void in which PHC had reduced the academic disqualification period of a varsity student named Aimal Khan.

‘Imran Khan should pack up and leave’, Maryam Nawaz reacts to PM’s warning

Lahore: Reacting to a warning from Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan, who on Sunday said he would be more dangerous if ousted from power, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said that Imran Khan should pack up and leave. 

The PML-N vice president said in a series of tweets in Urdu and English with different content soon after Imran Khan ended his two-hour telephone conversation with the general public, discussing a host of issues.

“Your threat that you would be more dangerous if ousted is nothing more than a hollow claim. The day you are out of power, people would perform prayer of thankfulness. Neither you are Nawaz Sharif who was supported by people nor you are a victim. You are a conspirer facing karma,” Maryam said.

She said Imran Khan sounded like a person who is not only defeated but has also accepted his defeat. Four years into the government and he is still only whining, she added.

“The ‘cartels’ you are complaining about are the mafias on your right and left who have fleeced 220 million and who run your kitchen,” she said.

The PMLN leader said that Imran Khan was wrong to blame the judiciary for his failure.

“The cases you made against Sharifs and PMLN were false and fabricated and were bound to meet the fate they have met. Now that your reality has dawned on the world, do not blame the judiciary. You have only your vindictiveness and revengefulness to blame.”

“Every word that IK has uttered today reeks of failure, dashed hopes and no faith in his or PTI’s future,” Maryam said adding that Imran Khan was “history” now.

She said Imran Khan should pack up and leave. “The more you cling to power, the more you will compound your problems and that of the people.”
