LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Siraj ul Haq has backed the demands of the students protesting against the irregularities in examinations and tests being conducted under the Pakistan Medical Commission.
Students from across the country had taken to the streets against the National Licensing Exam and the Medical and Dental Colleges Admission Test but the government was not paying any heed to the issue, he said in a statement issued from Mansoora on Thursday.
He declared the PMC an unconstitutional body and said the medical community had rejected it. He said the government must listen to the voices of the professionals and students. He also demanded an impartial inquiry into the issues of paper leaking and other irregularities.
Declaring the government move to establish PMC as anti-education and anti-health sector, he said the government bent upon destroying the future of the entire generation. He said the corona pandemic had already destroyed the education sector but the government policies were even more dangerous than the Covid. He said the JI stood with the community and raise the issue at every forum.
Meanwhile, the JI would hold a protest demonstration in all major cities on Friday against inflation and unemployment.
JI Emir Sirajul Haq will address the anti-inflation rally in Gujranwala while the protest demonstration in Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, and other cities would be addressed by other central and local leadership. Thousands of people from all walks of life would participate in the events. TF Report
