(SMUTA) Sindh Madressatul Islam University Teachers’ Association opposes online classes
Karachi: Sindh Madrasa-ul-Islam University Teachers Association (SMUTA) has opposed online classes. The SMUTA leadership says that Sindh Madressatul Islam University Karachi has been running online classes for the past one year due to corona, which has been a bad experience for teachers and students as they have faced many difficulties during classes. During this time there has been a lack of technical support, which has severely damaged the education of students. In addition, there have been several security issues in the learning management system that have not been adequately addressed by the administration. In addition, when universities and other educational institutions across the country have been opened for physical classes or are about to open, even physical examinations are being conducted, in this situation, physical classes should also be run in Jamia Sindh Madressatul Islam. Some elements within the Sindh Madrasa-ul-Islam University are proposing to continue online classes for their own personal interests and against the interests of the university, teachers, and students. SMUTA President Asif Hussain Simmons said that the faculty would not accept online classes at all and SMUTA strongly opposes the actions of such elements when the federal and provincial governments announced to run physical classes. If the university is not opened for physical classes, then SMUTA reserves the right to protest as much as possible.
