    A third world country wanting to become a developed country on the behest of the uneducated class leading it … Bravo … Even Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) would be weeping the fact that he stressed on education 1400 years ago for both women and men, and after 1400 years, we have a muslim country with the uneducated class wanting to lead it, hence calling it a will of the masses. I must say it a shame to every pakistani, that they want to raise slogans against caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), BUT does NOT want to honor any word that he stated for his ummah to follow.Recommend

    The process of verification of degrees was supposed to be completed before Election Commission declared candidates were eligible to contest election.

    After two years – what a pity? We have no mechanism.Recommend

    This was the roll of election commissioner to verify all the degrees, before the election.
    Can we trust on HEC for the verification of all Degrees?
    I don’t think so, because no one is trust able in any department.Recommend

    All the Educational Data should be under control of NADRA which these people and their high powers won’t be able to change no matter what and it would be available for higher authorities to view whenever they want. or even the public.

    HEC lol, like HEC have a digital system of records for these old-fags for the last 20 years … hahahah ROFLMAO
    People have been passing exams for the last 35 years by paying money to their higher education systems, e.g. BOARD OF SECONDARY EDUCATION LAHORE, HIGHER EDUCATION COMMISSION …

    Only a National Database Management Authority should have the power to control, integrate and maintain records, like PML-N / PPP or PML-Q people are just gona go their and put HEC or BISE Office on fire or something !then we will see whom records are required at the National Assembly ! :P

    LMAO !Recommend
