Not this time, it seems. Different degree of bogus-ness (bogosity?) :smile: The degree was an M.A. in Islamic studies - a degree from a madrassa, declared fake, apparently. No madrassas (religious schools) on the Axact list, at least as far as I know. It seems all madrassas are not created equal... Madrassa originates as a Persian word and I'm told the plural is madaris, although the form "madrassas" is common in English. "The Election Commission of Pakistan and the in-charge of Madrassa Jamia Qasmia Anwarul Aloom, Dera Ismail Khan, were made party to the case as the degree was issued by the madrassa." J. PS - PBS comment on (some) Pakistani madrassas here - not all, of course: "A madrassa is an Islamic religious school. Many of the Taliban were educated in Saudi-financed madrassas in Pakistan that teach Wahhabism, a particularly austere and rigid form of Islam which is rooted in Saudi Arabia."
