Pharmaceutical Review (www.pharmareview.wordpress.com). Prof. Dr. Javed Iqbal Vice Chancellor, University of Baluchistan, Quetta, Pakistan has awarded the Ph.D degrees to Mr. Ayaz Ali Khan Ex Drug Controller Pb., and Mr. Ammanullah Khan Director, Drug Testing Laboratory, Baluchistan. Both of these scholars are close friends of worthy vice chancellor. They belong to same “Professional Group” of Pakistan Pharmacist Association. Hence, they work, support and coverage each other in pharmacy profession.
The pharmacy community was shocked when a congratulating text message was aired after successful completion of Ph.D of these candidates. But, on other hand, one of the faculty member Dr. Muhammad Aleem Akhter, working as lecturer in department of pharmacy practice, University of Baluchistan has challenged the official procedure, scientific credibility and representative protocol of this act. Thus, the awarding of Ph.D degrees became amazing and unbelievable story. It looks like an ancient superstitious tale. Because Dr. Muhammad Aleem Akhter is at bottom level (working as lecturer) and Prof. Dr. Javed Iqbal is big boss (vice chancellor) of the university. He is subordinate of his subordinates. Fairly speaking, he is really not even in competition with Prof. Dr. Javed. But, he did, what mostly people don’t even think to do.
However, we appreciate the courage, bravery and fearlessness of Dr. Muhammad Aleem to stand before the corruption, dishonesty, monopoly and nepotism. The case that he files in university of Baluchistan is as under;

Pharmaceutical Review (www.pharmareview.wordpress.com). Pakistan Pharmacist Federation (www.pharmacistfed.wordpress.com) has organized a “Condolence Meeting” regarding the sad demise of Ms. Hira Furukh has held in Sargodha Pakistan. The participants has prayed to Almighty Allah to bless her peace and Jannah and grant Sabr to her family.
Ms. Hira Furukh has got her Pharm-D degree from University of Animal and Veterinary Sciences (UVAS), Lahore, Pakistan. She was mostly tried to participate in professional activities. Unluckily, she got 65% burn injuries while performing her duties as Pharmacist in Surgitex, Lahore, Pakistan. Definitely, this sad incidence happened because of poor safety measures, inappropriate protection and unavailability of First Aid/ CPR. All participants of this meeting felt very sorry for this sudden death. Ms. Hira Furukh is now “Shaheeda” according to the Islamic Sharya Law. Because she passed away in a sudden fire incidence, while performing her job in pharmaceutical industry. She was serving the nation, producing the life saving drugs and working to help the ill people.
But, on other hand, she left so many questions for pharmacist community, civil society, bureaucracy, health professionals and establishment of the state. She has assigned us very significant tasks. She has uncovered the serious negligencies and discrepancies.
