LAHORE: Punjab University’s (PU) Institute of Education and Research (IER) Assistant Professor Dr Abida Nasreen has been suspended from service for three months for publication of wrong map of Pakistan on a flex.

PU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran on Monday took notice of the publication of wrong map of Pakistan on a flex in which Azad Kashmir was not shown part of the country. The map was related to a workshop recently organised by the Department of Secondary Education.

The VC suspended Dr Nasreen from service with immediate effect and ordered a departmental inquiry to be headed by Prof Abid Hussain.

Dr Kamran also presided over an emergency meeting of IER’s Board of Governors that authorised him to initiate action against Dr Nasreen under PEEDA (Punjab Employees Efficiency Discipline and Accountability) Act.

According to a PU spokesman, a workshop was organised at IER’s Waheed Shaheed Hall on Sept 4 by Department of Secondary Education. “In a flex which was printed according to the theme of the workshop, wrong map of Pakistan, without showing geographical boundaries of Kashmir, was mistakenly published,” he said, adding no posters or pamphlets were distributed regarding the map in question in the workshop.

He said action would be taken against negligent officials soon and inquiry would be completed at the earliest.

Media is yet to get hold of Dr Parveen over the issue.
