Teacher reports plagiarism of Peshawar University’s VC

By Ernest Dempsey     Mar 26, 2011 in World
Peshawar - An assistant professor at the University of Peshawar has been suspended from his job after he reported an instance of plagiarism committed by the Vic Chancellor of the University of Peshawar, the Daily Dawn reported today(March 26, 2011).
According to the newspaper report, assistant professor Mohammad Zubair of the University of Peshawar’s Law College has been suspended by the university’s administration on charges of misconduct after he reported to the Higher Education Commission and the Governor of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province that the PhD work of Dr. Azmat Hayat Khan, Vice Chancellor University of Peshawar, was a case of plagiarism. Dawn had published the news of Mr. Zubair’s report to the authorities on March 16, 2011.
Soon thereafter, Mr. Zubair was suspended and at least two official inquiries have been initiated against him. He has been charged with misconduct, violating university rules, and taking part in political activities. A committee formed under the VC will be probing the charges brought up against Mr. Zubair while it will be left to the Higher Education Commission to probe the allegations of plagiarism brought up against the VC.
Plagiarism is a pretty common issue in Pakistan and a number of cases have been reported in different universities, though the lack of strict accountability has led to the absence of appropriate action against the accused in the past.
