LAHORE

The Punjab government on Wednesday appointed an eminent writer Prof Dr Muhammad Iqbal Shahid as Dean of Languages, Islamic & Oriental Learning, at Government College University Lahore against a post that had been lying vacant for the last eight years.

Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah after his appointment as vice-chancellor GCU had moved a summary to the Punjab governor through Higher Education Department for the appointment of deans in faculty of science and technology and faculty of languages of Islamic & Oriental Learning. The governor had also approved the appointment of Prof Dr Islam Ullah Khan as Dean Science of Technology who had already served the position for three years.

Prof Dr Muhammad Iqbal Shahid is PhD in Persian literature from University of Tehran, Iran, and held a post of Doctorate from University of London.

The vice-chancellor expressed gratitude to the chancellor on the appointment of two regular deans saying “it’s rather more difficult to run the academic affairs of the university without a dean as it was inherited by him.”

GCU Academic Staff Association President Prof Dr Riaz Ahmed also welcomed the appointment of deans. He lauded that Prof Hassan Shah, instead of centralising powers as per previous practice, had appointed regular deans.
