Blacklisted scholar lands ‘best research work’ award

The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan recently gave its best research paper award to a scholar who had been blacklisted  in 2008 for plagiarism.

 

Plagiarism at the higher education level has been an open secret, with many suspected plagiarists holding senior faculty positions in different universities across the country. But in a comical turn, the Higher Education Commission recently gave its best research paper award to a scholar who had been blacklisted by the regulatory body in 2008 for publishing a plagiarised paper, writes Riazul Haq for The Express Tribune.
