Turbat is divisional headquarter of Mekran division and Kech is the second biggest district of Balochistan. It has a university with approximately 11 departments including law.
The Law department is isolated from the university as it is situated near commissioner house in public library.
What is more surprising is that law department lacks the basic necessities such as toilet, classrooms, transportation, Generator, multimedia, internet and a lot more.
Furthermore, education is the civic, fundamental and legislative right of every individual. No doubt, the education plays a pivotal role in grooming students’ life but it is sad to state that they are deprived of basic facilities of life though the university’s other departments have all the facilities but only the law department students are deprived of their fundamental rights owing to the negligence and appalling policies of university’s administration. According to Universal Declaration Of Human Rights (UDHR)
“(1) Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.
(2) Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups, and shall further the activities of the United Nations for the maintenance of peace.”
Moreover, the students talked to the head of department and approached to the Registrar and vice Chancellor of the University for addressing the problems of the department and they did not pay any heed to the problems. The students of law department are facing sense of dejection and the university administration has flunked to resolve the problems of law department as if it is not part and parcel of university.
It gives me ultra-gratification to state that Pakistan Constitution 1973 article 25-A illustrates that, “the State shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of five to sixteen years in such manner as may be determined by law.”
As it has been asserted by numerous leaders and politicians that youths are the opinion-makers and backbone of a nation but nobody is ready to resolve the hurdles of the youths.
I request the Governor and the concerned authorities to take pragmatic and stern action to resolve the problems of law department university of Turbat.
