ISLAMABAD: The Axact scandal has put Pakistan’s integrity at stake, leaving the government authorities with no option but to take punitive action against those involved in this scam.
The scam is the result of an individual’s fraudulent maneuverings, but Pakistan is facing criticism all over the world, as the mastermind of this ‘diploma mill’ hails from Pakistan, a top officer of the Interior Ministry said.
“Questions were being raised about Pakistan’s role in curbing terrorism when the Axact scam gave ammunition to the elements that spare no occasion to criticize Pakistan on different pretexts. This scam has stigmatized Pakistan in the entire world over ‘educational terrorism,” he maintained.
The Government of Pakistan and the Interior Ministry are left with no option but to make investigations into this unique scam to its logical end and convey a positive message to the world that Pakistan and its people have nothing to do with the fraudulent tactics of an individual.

The minister has also decided to take onboard the investigative agencies of the US and the UK.The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) leads the investigation process with the assistance of FBR, Income Tax, Customs, SECP, State Bank and IT Export Association.
Chaudhry Nisar is personally overseeing investigations’ to take the scam to its logical end and to satisfy the international community and counter the baseless allegations of the foreign media that how it was possible that the Government of Pakistan was not aware of the Axact network.
The interior minister rejected all such baseless allegations stating that ‘Axact’ was awarding fake degrees to the students of the US, the UK and other countries and it was the responsibility of the governments of

those countries to keep an eye on it.
“The interior minister is fighting on different fronts after the Axact scandal trying to clear Pakistan’s position,” the official said, adding that the minister believed in ruthless but transparent investigation acceptable to the world community.The government and the people of Pakistan are facing a bad situation due to the wrongdoings of an individual, the officer concluded.
