Pakistani school says has sufficient funds, seeks lease extension

The Al Farooq Pakistani Islamic School in Dubai, which faces eviction from its current premises, is seeking a two-year extension on its lease due to expire in March 2013, Gulf News has reported. Earlier this week, the emirate's education regulator Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) said the school was served an eviction notice by the rent committee as it has not paid its rent for two years. However, the school owners refute the statement claiming they have always paid their rent on time. "We do not understand why KHDA has issued a wrong statement," said the school owner, Ubaid Rehman. "All we are asking is just two more years so that we can finish construction of our new school building," he said.
