Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab on Thursday said that the motive behind raising the fake degrees issue is to derail the democratic setup.

Talking to media outside the Bilawal House, she said that parliamentarians are being disgraced through raising the issue of fake degrees.

She stated that earlier non-democratic people used the way of the GHQ and now they are appearing before the Supreme Court to derail the system.

Wahab clarified that this issue had no links with leadership, adding that the creator of the constitution of 1973 was also not graduate.

She reiterated that the people using this issue want to derail the system but they would combat the conspiracies with courage.

Commenting on the mid-term issue, she said that the people dreaming about mid-term polls have to wait for their term.

Muhammad Ahsan Khan | 11 years ago | Reply One can derail something only if it is on the rail (rail-road). In Pakistan there is an ISLAMIC Republic (Democracy) and not the DEMOCRACY. Since this democracy does not exist in Pakistan how can it be derailed? Perhaps, it will be a good idea to check the definition Democracy in a good dictionary. BTW. The word "jamhooriyat"=democracy, does not exist in the Holy Book.
Asif Khan | 11 years ago | Reply Fozia wahab used "the creator of the constitution of 1973 was also not graduate.". I think she should at least know that there is a huge difference between non graduate and fake graduate. Non graduate is no issue but fake graduate is an issue. I think no one is derailing any setup. If they will go some other will come by election. What is the issue in that. May be they have some other agenda behind this democracy word which they feel is disturbing.
