PC: COMSATS University Islamabad

A lecturer from Comsats University Islamabad (CUI) was sacked for asking an “objectionable” question in an English composition quiz on the Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (BEE) program.

In a letter to the Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST), the CUI administration mentioned that an inquiry had been initiated about the content of the quiz.

It was also written in the letter that the University administration had already taken action, and have terminated the services of visiting faculty lecturer. The termination was effective from January 5, 2023 and the lecture had been blacklisted.

The university students were “shocked” when they saw the question asking them to write 300 words on the given topic.

Naveed Ahmed Khan, Additional Registrar said that when the lecturer was called for an explanation, he admitted his mistake and confessed that “he had plagiarized the question from Google”, he added. After this, the quiz was retaken.
