KARACHI: The Higher Education Commission’s Executive Director resigned after one of his papers were found to be heavily plagiarised. It is shameful that someone heading a body responsible for ensuring production of quality and original research work from higher educational institutions has been found guilty of plagiarism.
Plagiarism is rampant in the country. Students at all levels plagiarise for their research work. This tendency needs to be checked. Plagiarism harms only those who indulge in it. We either check plagiarism or say good-bye to merit.
