HEC’s Decision to Withhold Validation of University of Sahiwal Degrees Raises Questions

In a distressing turn of events, a cruel twist of fate has left students of Sahiwal University in limbo. The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has declined to validate their hard-earned degrees, plunging their accomplishments into uncertainty. This news has stirred a surge of frustration and worry among the affected students and their families, spurring urgent appeals for intervention.

Mr Azaz Syed a prominent Host of a program called talkshock, highlighted this issue to raise a voice for the concerned student.

Despite successfully passing their exams, Sahiwal University graduates have been left in a state of uncertainty, as the HEC has yet to recognize their degrees. This administrative conundrum has raised serious questions about the integrity and reliability of the education system in the region.

In 2005, Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan (BZU), under the inauguration of the then Punjab Governor, established a sub-campus in Sahiwal. A significant development occurred in 2015 when the Provincial Assembly of Punjab passed legislation that elevated the sub-campus to the status of a fully-fledged university, officially naming it the University of Sahiwal. This declaration was revealed after those students took admission thinking it was Bahauddin Zakariya University and now face the challenge of HEC not recognizing their degrees.

The plea for action has grown louder, with demands for Federal Education Minister and Education Secretary to take swift notice of the situation. Concerned individuals argue that the futures of these students are at stake, and their academic achievements must not be undermined due to bureaucratic hurdles.
