LAHORE: Degrees of five more parliamentarians were declared fake on Wednesday including a senator, two MNAs and two MPAs.

Shah Abul Latif University declared the Bachelors degree of Senator Akbar Magsi as fake after verification.

Magsi's degree was sent to the university in Khairpur by the Higher Education Commission. Magsi is the younger brother of Balochistan Governor Nawab Zulfiqar Magsi and Sindh Food Minister Nadir Magsi.

HEC had also sent 50 degrees to the Bahauddin Zakariya University in Multan for authentication.

The University there, declared the degrees of PML-N MNA Syed Salman Mohsin Gilani, elected from NA-165 Pakpatan, and PPP MPA Waseem Afzal Gondal, elected from PP-119 Mandi Bahauddin, as fake.

The university also declared the degrees of 47 other parliamentarians as genuine.

Meanwhile Peshawar University also declared the degrees of PPP MNA Akhundzada Chatan from Bajour and PPP MPA Safina Saima Ghurki from Punjab as fake.

The controller examination of the Peshawar University has told Express News that no record was found of the degrees of the both parliamentarians.

HEC had sent degrees of 105 parliamentarians to Peshawar University for verification. The remaining 103 degrees were cleared and a report will be sent to the Higher Education Commission.


Fake Degrees in Pakistan | 11 years ago | Reply We've been compiling a list of all politicians with fake degrees since the ECP site does not list any offenders. The list can be viewed at
Schazad | 11 years ago | Reply I am so happy to see these developments. This has never happened before in Pakistan. This taking off veil from ugly faces of our politicians but at the same time, not all politicians are bad. Its us who makes the difference. If JD gets elected its our people who got him re-elected again. So we,people, become ugly faces not politicians. But when good politicians try to run for office, we don't elect them either. I have seen many educated people run for elections but unfortunately people don't look at their abilities, they are stuck in tribalism where one person decides for everyone. And all people follow his instructions like a herd of sheep and goats.
