Fawad Chaudhry Criticized On Social Media For His Expectations From Universities In Coronavirus Crisis

Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry drew the ire of a number of social media voices after his tweet demanding to know what Pakistani universities were doing to provide useful guidance and policy recommendations to authorities in dealing with the novel Coronavirus outbreak.

Social media users responded to the minister along a number of themes, citing the lack of funding for educational institutions, the lack of academic freedom and the generally low priority given to the educational sector in Pakistan.

Despite some examples of agreement with the Minister from those critical of the performance of universities in Pakistan, many commentators on social media appeared to disagree with the Minister’s expectations from institutions of higher education in Pakistan.
