Students hold protest, demand Shafqat Mahmood’s resignation


Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mahmood, on Tuesday, announced to postpone O and A level exams but it looks like students are still not satisfied with this decision.

#ResignShafqatMahmood became a top trend now on Twitter as students demand cancellation of exams instead of just postponement.

Social activist and lawyer, Barrister Hassaan Niazi said the government should have gone with teacher-assessed grading to secure the future of students.

Lawyer Jibran Nasir also put weight on teacher-assessed grading and asked students to make a trend #ResignShafqatMahmood.

Since these two are leading this campaign from the front, students from all across Pakistan demanded the Education minister’s resignation.

Earlier, students protested against Mahmood for the cancellation of exams amid prevailing COVID-19 cases in the country. Several celebrities also joined this social media campaign and later applauded the government for the postponement of exams.
