“Dr.” Babar Awan’s Ph.D. Degree

This time I totally agreed with PKPolitics for raising this issue.

In today’s The News, Ansar Abbasi reports Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs PPP’s Babar Awan has been found holding a doctorate degree issued by a fake US university. The minister, who admitted to have got his Ph.D degree from the University of Monticello USA in 1997-98 through its distant learning programme (correspondence course), however, insisted that his Ph.D was valid. The “university” in question was “involuntarily dissolved” and it’s operator Leslie Snell was found guilty in Hawaii and Kansas of issuing invalid degrees without state authority and was fined in excess of $1.7 million.

“Despite all this evidence, Babar Awan insists that it is incorrect that the Monticello University was unaccredited and that the Ph.D degree he was awarded is fake. “

Its really a shame. He always posed himself to be a ‘scholar’ on talk shows.
