Is HEC Removing Pakistan Studies Subject From University Syllabus?

Caretaker Federal Minister for Information Murtaza Solangi has clarified that the Higher Education Commission (HEC) did not make any decisions or recommendations to universities regarding the abolition of Pakistan Studies from their degree programs.

Solangi made this statement in response to a motion put forward by Senator Mushtaq Ghani, who claimed that the Higher Education Commission (HEC) had removed Pakistan Studies from the syllabus at the graduation level.

“As per the concerned ministry and HEC, no decision or proposal has been issued to abolish the subject of Pakistan Affairs or any other course from the syllabus at the graduation level,” the information minister informed the Senate.

Solangi stated that all undergraduate policies recommended by the HEC adhere to the minimum standards necessary for such programs. He added that universities operate autonomously within the framework of their respective laws.

According to the caretaker minister, a course on Pakistan’s ideology and the constitution has been incorporated into all undergraduate degree programs. Murtaza Solangi further said that this course is a blend of Pakistan Studies and the Constitution.

He revealed that the HEC is currently engaging in consultations with relevant stakeholders to develop a two-credit-hour compulsory course for all undergraduate degree programs.

  • Pakistan Studies should remain the compulsory subject as it gives the young generation knowledge about the making of Pakistan. It may be revised by including latest events and changes in policies.

  • Instead of removing pak studies, you people must remove the subject of Sindhi because most of the students cannot even do the reading of the subject, and it has no value in the future. So, please remove this one before removing that one.
