Higher Education Commission (HEC) Former Executive Director Dr Arshad Ali, alleged fake degree mafia at the back of his strained renunciation.
Former Executive Director HEC Dr Arshad Ali stimulated an appeal that his resignation was obtained under mammoth pressure. The crusade started against him when he took up the case of fake degrees, lack of quality education and organizational malpractices inside of HEC.
Dr Arshad Ali argues that he was the casualty of fake degree mafia which was not joyful with his action against fake diploma mills. The former ED of the HEC, who was blamed of plagiarism in his research paper, alleged that affirmation against him were fallacious and his renunciation has yet to be customary so he should be permissible to withdraw his resignation.
Dr Arshad Ali contended that he was fighting against corrupt mafia and took action against the HEC officials involved in attestation of fake degrees, which resulted in a campaign against him.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Judge Justice Athar Minallah issued notice to the HEC and required detailed answer within a fortnight.
Former Executive Director HEC declare that there are 102 fake/illegal universities/institutes in Punjab, 36 in Sindh, 11 in KP, three in federal capital and three in AJK.
Dr Arshad spent 16 years with NUST, research collaboration with Stanford University USA and Caltech University USA and with Centre for European Nuclear Research CERN (www.cern.ch) again the world’s most prestigious research facility in Europe.
The breach of copyright issue of Former ED HEC regard to research paper according to the Internet record from ARXIV shows that the paper was submitted by Prof Richard McClatchey on 5 July 2004 at 15:48:43 UTC.
This paper did not go through a review process, and was produced by an undergraduate student (Atif Mehmood) as part of his project, and the leading author Prof McClatchey has already confirmed this to be the case and the paper was withdrawn by the authors in 2004 before the conference.
So in this case no deliberate plagiarism has taken place, and the allegations being made are entirely unjustified and unreliable.
