The Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan has made a significant alteration to its undergraduate policy by eliminating Pakistan Studies as a compulsory subject.

Under the new undergraduate policy, set to be implemented in the 2023 scheme of studies, Pakistan Studies will no longer be obligatory in BA, BSc, and all honors degree programs.

The decision has elicited varied reactions from academic circles. Representatives from the Federation of All Pakistan Academic Staff Association and Dr. Amjad Magsi, the General Secretary of the Punjab University Academic Staff Association, have expressed concerns.

They emphasized that Pakistan Studies has been part of the graduate-level curriculum for several decades, and substituting it with another subject might evoke sensitive concerns related to national sentiments.

They urged the HEC to reconsider and reinstate Pakistan Studies as a mandatory subject at the undergraduate level.

Contrarily, a spokesperson for the Higher Education Commission clarified that universities are not obligated to adhere to this policy.

The decision to include or exclude Pakistan Studies from the curriculum remains at the discretion of individual institutions, allowing for flexibility across different universities.

  • Glad to hear that as the children desiring to pursue it further, should adopt that in under-grad / grad / masters.

  • Another stupid decision by HEC. There is already an excess of idiots in Pakistan due to non-compulsory nature of many subjects. The only thing they should do is ban Islamiat for non-muslims because the way it’s taught is so bad that non-muslims can top the subject without understanding anything, with most Muslims not being far behind, making it highly disrespectful. They aren’t good for anything else for a long time anyways.

  • This is another malicious move to make youth ignorant about the knowledge of Pakistan’s history, struggles of our national heroes, common people who lost their lives for the sake of an Islamic state, named Pakistan.
    Shame on you HEC. You are also sold.

    • Bruh what history? Everything is fake and misleading in that subject, when are you going to open your eyes? We all have been brain washed.

  • Im sorry! If im so harsh… But its reality… They are all puppets…. I’m hopeless from the HEC & government. Ye log meeting krte hain to bakwas chezon pr… This is not important at all… Inko education ki improvement k lye kam krna chahiye .. ye to government schools ko privatize krhe hain… ase method include krein k dummy .. bhus(بھس) bhare students na paida hn jinka prhai main dil hi nhi lgta… Is education se na to skill ayi hai inmein na hum practical field main kch kr pate hain… uppr se society main chor ..daako or corrupt paida hore hain …. Afsos ka maqam hai.
