Favoritism in Sindh University - Pakistan Today

Favoritism in Sindh University

In Islam, teaching is considered a prophetic profession because all prophets gave us the message of peace, love, justice, equality, and kindness towards the oppressed, underprivileged, and penniless people. On the other hand, they strictly forbade us from nepotism, favoritism and cronyism.

Sindh University is one of the oldest universities of Pakistan. There are total fifty four departments and many are still under construction. Sindh University has given birth to many intellectuals: poets, novelists, CSS officers, lawyers, doctors, and engineers etc. In 2015 Sindh University was certified by ISO, an international organization of quality management system. In 2013, it ranked 8th in general category by HEC.

Today, Sindh university has lost it credibility of education. Teachers are not candid with their noble job. Many students are suffering from the favoritism of teachers who give more preference to those whom they know personally or those who have the same place of origin as they, while others are considered inferior. In semester exams, marks have been given on the basis of favoritism and nepotism. They give grace of marks to those who don’t even have knowledge worth three rupees, whereas industrious students end up with one or two marks short of a good grade. Some male teachers tend to give more marks to girls than they deserve even though they might not even be able to write a correct sentence. I am not trying to seem prejudiced in any sense, but I just don’t feel the marking is standardized and regulated enough. I find these sorts of scenarios depressing and it makes me lose faith in the system.

I request the Chancellor and Vice Chancellor of Sindh University through your esteemed newspaper to look into this matter. If this practice has been continued in university students faith in education would fly off soon and their future will be ultimately destroyed. It is said that if you want to wipe out any country you have to collapse its education system. But sadly in Pakistan

teachers themselves are contributing to its collapse through favoritism.
