    In 2002 when he was in Software technology park in Enabling Technology (which was later occupied by group of so called patriotic PhDs of EME and NUST) owned by an American Pakistani and was working on defence projects. Ismail was one of those people who practically did advertisements of Masters and PhD programs of CASE telling people that they were doing it for best interests of Pakistan but in fact they occupied the organization and on Supreme Court turned it into Engineering Education trust. Secretly CASE did all from setting papers to grading and UET acted as rubber stamp. They became gods and many in different organizations benefitted from it. Directors of Engg. Education Trust became self-claimed owners. Ismail was part of that corruption and lies. Kindly avoid promoting such people, there are thousands of people you can write then, looks like an advertisement to me.
