In a problematic turn of events at COMSATS University Islamabad, a lecturer has been suspended after putting students through a quiz exam that included questions about incest on the ‘English Composition’ section.
The quiz came as a shock to the COMSATS students as the objectionable section on the Quiz asked students to share detailed views on the sexual intercourse between the siblings.
یہ کیا جہالت ہے؟ انگریزی کے امتحان میں اس قدر بیہودہ سوال کی کیا منطق ہے؟ یہ مادر پدر آزاد ذہن کا فتور ہمارے نوجوانوں کو برباد کر رہا ہے!! pic.twitter.com/YSoQ4QhMi6

As per reports, the varsity informed the Ministry of Science and Technology for the controversial question in the English Quiz. In response, a letter sent by the COMSATS rector said “I am directed to refer to the Ministry of Science and Technology letter dated January 19, 2023 on the above subject and convey that action on the matter has already been taken and the service of Lecturer (visiting faculty) has been terminated with effect from January 5, 2023.”
Reportedly, the faculty member was removed last month, while the ministry took notice weeks after the incident.
