Ever since I read the news about the fake degree scam, involving one of the biggest IT Company in Pakistan, I have been wondering why we are such an evil genius race? I am studying in Canada, in one of the best universities here. Getting a degree is not a joke, but hard work and a lot of commitment. I never thought that it would be so easy to get a degree. One of my friends was working in a company, which was doing the same business, but she left as soon as she came to know the truth.

One of the problems could be lack of Cyber Laws. People think that they would be safe in Pakistan even if they are caught. There is no accountability, no law and anyone can start a business without any kind of check. The incumbent authorities must take action against these businesses. This is ruining us as a nation.
