Express July 12, 2010



Balochistan University declared the degrees of Deputy Speaker Balochistan Assembly Syed Matiullah Agha and FATA MNA Jawad Hussain as fake on Monday.

The Higher Education Commission had sent 58 degrees of parliamentarians to the university for authentication.


Earlier in the day Karachi University (KU) completed the verification of 106 degrees of parliamentarians on Monday, where it was revealed that three degrees could not be verified.

Pro-vice chancellor of KU confirmed that three degrees, including those of Yaqoob Bazinjo and Jamil Malik could not be verified. The chancellor added that the degree of Senator Faisal Raza Abidi was not sent to the university to be verified.

He claimed that Abidi only submitted a marks sheet, and the university degree cannot be verified on the basis of just that.

Higher Education Commission directed all universities to verify the degrees of politicians by July 13th.


HEC has so far received feedback on 234 degrees of members of parliaments after verification from 22 universities. The Commission says 36 of the degrees issued by foreign universities are pending verification reports.




A number of degrees belonging to parliamentarians sent to Punjab University for verification were found to be missing, sources stated.

The degrees of as many as 313 parliamentarians were sent to the Punjab University, out of which 200 degrees have been verified while the record of some of the degrees has been found missing.
