Srinagar: MBA pass out refuses to take degree from Smriti Irani

Srinagar (PTI): A young MBA pass out has decided not to accept his degree at the first convocation of Islamic University of Science and Technology (IUST) in Kashmir from Union HRD minister Smriti Irani as a protest against “diminishing freedoms” in the country.

“Though, for a student, receiving a master’s degree is no less than any prestigious award. But on October 19, (the Convocation Day) I Sameer Gojwari won’t accept it,” Gojwari, who completed his MBA from the IUST in 2008, wrote on his facebook page.

Gojwari’s post came in response to unconfirmed reports that Irani will be giving out degrees to the pass outs of the IUST at the varsity’s first ever convocation on Monday.

“When India’s writers are returning literary awards to protest diminishing freedoms and 41 writers across the country have given back most prestigious awards; unofficial reports say that Islamic University of Science & Technology on its 1st Convocation have chaired a minister from Central Ministry #BJP, most likely Mrs Smriti Irani,” he said.

The Union HRD minister is scheduled to lay the foundation stone of Central University Kashmir complex at Ganderbal on Tuesday.

  1. First convocation of Islamic University of Science and Technology (IUST) in Kashmir from Union HRD minister Smriti Irani.

    SHE IS THE FIT PERSON, FOR SHE MADE FALSE CLAIMS ABOUT HER BEING A GRADUATE, WHERE AS SHE IS AN UNDER GRADUATE!!!

  2. I appreciate Mr. Sameer Gojwari for saying that he will not accept his M.B.A. degree from the hands of Ms. Smriti Irani when she will present it on 19th October to protest against the diminishing freedom in the country under B.J.P. This man needs to be saluted for having the guts and not saying, “Minister ko dekhneyka or milneyka mauka hai.” She has not made a clean breast of her qualifications: one time she is a graduate, another time she has done first year (Arts or Commerce) and then on the Internet it is mentioned that she has studied up to XII Standard. Her qualifications reminds me of another senior Congress politician, who some sources say is high school and others say is just primary schooling or school dropout. Smriti Irani’s only credibility to fame is her role in that serial, “Saas bhi kabhi bahu thee,” just like the way Gajendra Chauhan bragged on Times Now about his role as Yudhistira on a serial and also his petty, small time roles in plethora of films. The way he was bragging on the television, would have made a person not watching Hindi cinema to feel that he is some Clark Gable, Gregory Peck, Peter O’Toole, Omar Sharif, et al. Even the midget, Danny De Vito has million times better credentials than this Gajendra Chaudhary. I do not know what happened to the long running agitation by the students of Film & Television Institute of India, who were protesting against RSS/BJP appointing him as the Head of that institution, but this man was shamelessly hanging around.

    Under Congress Ministry in Goa, there was an Education Minister who had studied upto IX Standard and there were allegations about his son.

    If there are people with spine and integrity in all spectrums of life, especially politics, then the country will progress. Inspite of the fact that Narendra Modi has completed one-and-half-years as Prime Minister, India’s per capita income is a little over US $ 1,500/-, which is nothing spectacular. For some people he is a great leader especially people like Ambani brothers and, as for me, he is a mere braggart with no visible results and output to show. However, all said and done, he is anyday better than the Sonia Gandhi and Dr. Manmohan Singh combine, who acted like completely burqa clad women, who did not show their faces to the people, were always underground and their presence and absence was not felt by the people. Then, there was the Defence Minister, A.K. ntony who was a good-for-nothing fellow.

      A very good observation. This must be a very TIGHT slap on the faces of the BJP/RSS and their ardent fans – stretching from Adyar to Arkansas and Nagpur to Nebraska!

      For all his ‘MACK’ in India hype, this is actually what happens! Are there no foundries in India?

      ‘Make in India’, take a break! While Narendra Modi trots around the globe exhorting the suited-booted people of the business world to use India as a manufacturing hub, China still rules—even when it comes to a project close to the prime minister’s heart. The ‘Statue of Unity’, Modi’s 182-metre tall salute to the Iron Man of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, is being smelted and cast into existence not on the soil that was dear to the Sardar—and is, to Chhote Sardar Modi—but has been outsourced to a foundry 96 hours and 6,132 km to the east of Ahmedabad, in the People’s Republic of China.

      It will please the Guinness World Records-fixated prime minister that the ‘World’s Tallest Statue’ that was his dream is being poured into shape by 700 workers of the “world’s biggest foundry”, the Jiangxi Tongqing Metal Handicrafts Company, at its 51,000 square metre workshop in Nanchang province in eastern China.

      Yet another TIGHT slap on the fallen-faces of the Modi Bhaktha’s.

      Go on ya Rampa. Call me a ‘Joker’ for the 1,000th time. Say that this is a plot by the Syrian’s who have sought refuge in Germany & other parts of Europe. Say that outlookindia.com is a left/right mouthpiece of the ‘Damad’.

      Reminds me of that slogan/dialogue:

      – – ಪನ್ಪೆರ್
      ಪ್ಲೇಟ್ ಪ್ಲೇಟ್ ತಿನಪೇರ್

      Only difference is,

      ಮೇಕ್ ಇನ್ ಇಂಡಿಯಾ, ಮೇಕ್ ಇನ್ ಇಂಡಿಯಾ ಪ್ಪನ್ಪೆರ್
      ಕೆಲಸ ಪೂರ ಚೀನಾ’ಗ್ ಕೊರ್ಪೆರ್

  3. What a joke!! An student from ‘Islamic University, Kashmir’ lecturing rest of India on ‘diminishing freedoms’!! Yes, right – Kashmir is a paradise when it comes to freedom!! LOL I wonder what this guy thinks of Kashmeeri Pandits who were harassed, bullied, murdered and finally thrown out of valley!! As usual, clueless fake-secular crowd is treating this guy as if he is some kind of hero!! As I have said many times, I’ve noticed many on this forum are very ‘brave’ to lecture Hindus on tolerance. However, those guys hide under the table when it comes to ‘peaceful’ groups!!

  4. Dear readers,

    In earlier instance Flutter created when A 1996 batch IPS officer of Rajasthan cadre is forced to resign when she refuse to work under fake degree holder.

    The development comes at a time when the Ministry has seen several senior level officers leaving it. Radha S Chauhan, Joint Secretary, Secondary Education, joined UIDAI a couple of months back much before completing her five-year tenure at the HRD Ministry.

    Other officers such as Veena Ish, Jagmohan Raju and Praveen Prakash had sought early transfers from the ministry. In April this year, Amarjeet Sinha, Additional Secretary in the Ministry, who had supposedly developed differences with Irani, was transferred to the Rural Development Ministry.

    More and more educated people are regretting Modi’ ‘Good governance’ is governed by fake degree holders.While Modi is mesmerised by mythology based pseudo science,while HRD minister is completely submitted to Dinanath Batra’s education system.

    Now the battle is also drawn on medium of education by RSS.

    If individual can understand the role of education in democracy,when will be the autonomous Election commision of India will realise the value of education in it? I strongly doubt the verification of candidate affidavit.

    Today Modi’s ‘Good governance’ has highest number of criminals elected in the history of India.How can one expect ‘Achhe Din’ when our elected representative worth representing citizens of India?

    BJP is blaming Nitish Kumar’s Bihar for ‘Jungle raj’.But in reality it is running ‘Chambal Raj’ remotely operated by RSS from Nagpur.

  5. Really! Regardless of what the minister’s educational qualifications are, the issue is what the student graduate said of freedom – ‘diminishing freedom’ – which Islamic country in the world has more freedom than India when it comes to Muslims including those in Kashmir? He should be sent to Pakistan and so that he gets a taste of what is on the other side of the border! They are murdering each other in the name of religion! Gojwari needs to go and live in one of the Islamic countries with Sharia laws – may be then this person will appreciate the freedom that one enjoys in India!

  6. which Islamic country in the world has more freedom than India when it comes to Muslims including those in Kashmir? -Mr.B.Dinesh

    Sir,Can you give me example which country in the world appointed Ministry of Human resources with fake degree other than Modi’s ‘Good Governance’?

    Why Indian born citizen should be forcefully repatriated for protesting guaranteed under democratic rights?Then what is the difference in your views and those political thugs like Giriraj Singh and Sakshi Maharaj who build their carrier preaching hate?

    Mr.Gojwari has right to live and die in his own mother land.He is more patriot than those who gave up their identity for few more Dollars and promise of nationality to serve ‘Gora’? He is more patriotic than those who wants to build temple for killer of Father of nation Mahatma Gandhi.

    Jai Hind

  7. Obviously Mr. Rizwan is more concerned about the fake degree issue than freedom of speech – if someone is so bothered about fake degree claim of the HR Minister as opposed to the freedom of speech, then one should really go and live in an Islamic country and obey the Shari laws – pick your choice Mr. Rizwan!
