A friend who carries a Masters Degree from the Karachi University expressed his utmost dejection at the award of the honorary doctorate to the Interior Minister by his Alma Mater. He said that somehow he now felt his degree not worth its while being from a university that was so indiscriminate in doling out doctorates to persons not deserving them. He genuinely looked perturbed to have lost the respect and pride for the KU that he once held for it. COL. RIAZ JAFRI (RETD), Rawalpindi, October 14.
