UoK Invalidates LLB Degree of Justice Tariq Jahangiri

Degree of Justice Tariq Jahangiri

In a surprising turn of events, the University of Karachi (UoK) has declared the LLB degree of Honourable Mr Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri, a sitting judge of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), as invalid. The decision was announced in an official notification issued by the university authorities.

Justice Jahangiri, who has been serving as a jurist on the Islamabad High Court since December 2020, received his law degree from the University of Karachi. However, recent investigations have raised concerns about the authenticity of his academic credentials.

The controversy surrounding Justice Jahangiri’s LLB degree emerged after six judges of the IHC, including Jahangiri himself, penned a letter to the Supreme Judicial Council of Pakistan. In the letter, they alleged interference by the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in judicial matters. The judges cited instances of pressure on their colleagues through the abduction and torture of their relatives, as well as secret surveillance within their residences. Furthermore, they questioned the existence of a state policy aimed at intimidating and coercing judges.

The Karachi University’s decision to invalidate Justice Jahangiri’s LLB degree adds further complexity to the ongoing controversy. Legal experts and academics are closely monitoring the situation, and questions are being raised about the implications for his position as a high court judge.

As the investigation unfolds, the legal community awaits further developments. Justice Jahangiri’s future on the bench hangs in the balance, and the credibility of academic qualifications for judges is under scrutiny.
