Sindh University gives clean chit to all MPs
Islamabad, July 29: Sindh University has given a clean chit to all MPs even after the re-verification of degrees which according to its Vice Chancellor (VC) was in line with the guidelines on Higher Education Commission (HEC).
During a press briefing by Vice Chancellors of all public sector universities, Sindh University Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Nazir A Mughal revealed that there were 108 degrees provided to Sindh University for verification out of which 105 are genuine. “The remaining three degrees are not legible and we have asked HEC to provide us with the readable copies of the documents,” he said.
He said that we have completed the process of verification of degrees long ago but HEC suspected us and asked us also to verify intermediate and matriculation certificates as well “Once we had completed the whole process then we were asked to re verify it according to guidelines of HEC which were not mentioned before,” he said.
Mughal said that after receiving new directions by HEC, they demanded intermediate and matriculation certificates from the public representatives. “After thorough scrutiny of all documents the degrees of MPs are declared genuine,’ he said.
He said that the first batch of degrees verification has been completed by Sindh University. “We have received 13 more degrees for verification in 2nd batch on 20 July and nine in third batch a few days ago and we have started the process of verification of these degrees as well,” he said.
According to the sources Mughal severely criticized the media during the vice chancellors meeting and said that it was the media that was creating an issue out of a non-issue. “The media is behind me and publishing false news against me,” he said in the meeting.
Mughal reiterated in the meeting and in press briefing as well that he was neither under the pressure of provincial government nor under the pressure of federal government. “We are performing our duty independently and are not being pressured by any segment,” he said. The news
