One of the biggest issues on social media this month was Pakistani students and their board of directors/CAIE exams going on. Students with notable support, including politician and activist Jibran Nasir and TV show host Waqar Zaka, are making a cause with Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mahmood on the other side of the ring.
The most dissatisfied and inappropriate part of this very valid fight was the students crossing the line and being rude to Mahmoud. This is an unacceptable and unacceptable behavior. Whatever the cause, regardless of age, it should not be misunderstood with others.
The Internet shared this opinion in general, and several notable personalities criticized the students. Students also criticized their peers, pointing out that this behavior was unacceptable. Mahmood also blamed those who swear at him by speaking about this and crossed the line of basic etiquette.
Nasir, who has defended the student’s cause, echoed this, although he was not free from criticism. He was recently blocked by the Minister of Education for continuing to speak on this matter. Nasir saw this as a minister’s wish to remain in the bubble free from criticism and those who question his decision. He also mentioned that he did not abuse the pastor or that he did not make personal remarks that he would be angry.
In line with his previous remarks, the activist now told students via social media that “people who encourage them to post offensive comments or offensive tweets to highlight test questions are not of the greatest interest to their hearts.” He advised students not to participate in the trend, and advised not to do so, as doing so would only hurt their cause and only embarrass those who stood with them. He urged them to stay “clean and polite”.
One of the people who spoke not very good language was Zaka, who recently called the pastor’La Sora’.
The latest update from this saga is that the government has announced that all exams have been postponed until June 15th, urging CAIE students to appear for exams in the fall semester of 2021. Students since then have insisted that the government be following a global trend in doing so, asking them to cancel their exams entirely and get grades evaluated by their schools.
