  1. Its better to dissolve HEC as it has bias attitude toward religious higher studies, it creates crux and nothing more to them,its only serving other field of studies, even HEC elites does not know in what disciplines and departments and in which mode universities awarding degrees in higher religious studies, No religious journal fall in top category of recognized journals.What a pity that a quarterly Arabic journal Al dirasat Al Islamia which is recognized in gulf universities find its palace in X category, No arabic knowing expert in the HEC panel, If SC reinstate HEC, it has to treat all depatments egually.

  2. I want to give my opinion just an advise... Those universities which are registered with the HEC, HEC authorize them that after the degree completion that university fulfill the verification and attestation of the degree. then there will be no problem and the issue of the fake degrees will also restricts. this will also help the students and there will be no wastage of time for them... its an open and heartly opinion, if possible please take actions
