LAHORE, (Pakistan Point News – 11th Nov, 2016) : Thousands of people across the country are fuming over a controversial question paper by Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) in which the Matric students were asked to write an essay on the “personality of elder sister.”In the question, the “aspects” to be mentioned “in detail” appear to be highly obnoxious as they include: Age, Physique, Height, Looks, and Attitude etc. Students, who attempted the AIOU paper, said they were highly shocked to find such a question in the Matric exam.
“First I thought it was a mistake,” said a student, who talked to PakistanPoint on the condition of anonymity. “When I asked the invigilator about the nature of this question, he simply refused to explain anything and asked me to finish my paper.” They say the essay question is unethical and against the norms of the society, besides demanding sacking of the teacher who designed the paper. When contacted, AIOU Registrar Dr. Naeem Qureshi refused to comment before conducting an official inquiry.
