KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi Chief Engineer Hafiz Naeemur Rehman has strongly condemned the Sindh government over forced transfer of 67 teachers, including 39 female, from Karachi to interior areas of the province in the name of promotion — practically forcing them to tender resignations.

In his reaction to the development, the JI leader dubbed it a decision based on hostility to Karachi and Karachiites. He added that it was sheer injustice to the affected people in general and the women in particular.

Engineer Hafiz Naeemur Rehman said that it was a conspiracy to take away jobs from the affected teachers and subject specialists from the city. The decision would not be accepted at any cost and the Sindh government will have to withdraw the decision to transfer the promoted teachers, he said.

The promoted teachers had joined the department to render their services in Karachi, he said, adding that the teachers also reside in Karachi and practically it was impossible for them to start a fresh life in interior areas of the province. How come it possible for a female teacher to continue her job in far flung areas while the rest of her family resides in Karachi the JI leader raised a question.

It seems that the 67 teachers were forced to early retirement through the forced transfer and in other words it was an attempt to create space in the department for blue-eyed persons, he added.

Engineer Hafiz Naeemur Rehman concluded that through such nefarious tactics, the provincial government aimed at usurping the rights of Karachiites and it would also be tantamount to killing the academic future of the students in Karachi.
