PML-Q MPA Samina Khawar Hayat's graduate degree, along with BNP MNA Yaqoob Bizenjo's degree was found to be fake on Tuesday.

Hayat's degree says that she graduated from Rifah University in 2004, while the university claims it started its bachelors program in 2005. The university said Ms Hayat's degree is a forged copy.

Meanwhile, Balochistan National Party MNA Yaqoob Bizenjo dismissed the authenticity of the Karachi University report that declared his degree as being fake.

He claimed he passed his Bachelors exams in 2007 and also said that he will resign if his degree is proved to be fake.

Yaqub Bizenjo is the latest of parliamentarians to get caught in a fake degree scandal.

The latest case of a parliamentarian being found to be in possession of a fake degree is one case among many cases of fake degrees in the recent past. Following many such cases the HEC sent the degrees of 934 parliamentarians for verification to universities across the country.

The University of Karachi received 106 degrees for verification. So far, two degrees have been declared fake. One of those belonged to Bizenjo.

The degrees will be sent for further investigation on July 15 with a full report to the HEC. Under the law, Bizenjo can be disqualified from his seat.

Skima | 11 years ago | Reply Dr. Javaid Laghari, HEC Chairman, is next in line of firings for his bold attempts. He is the one helming all these degrees verification. He tweets @jlaghari. Let's follow him and let the powers that be know that we support his efforts in cleansing the parliament of riff raff.
