  • Students petition Tara Mehmood to persuade her dad, Shafqat Mehmood, to allow institutes to hold online exams
  • The actress, who is quite active on Instagram, had shared pictures of her dad on her profile in the recent past
  • Students in certain cities have taken to the streets in protest against in-person examinations 

A day after it was reported that Tara Mehmood was Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood’s daughter, Pakistanis have started dropping messages for the actress to persuade her dad to hold exams online. 

Several students have taken to the streets in Lahore and other cities to demand exams be held online, due to the coronavirus situation in the country. Some protests have led to a clash between police and students.

Tara Mehmood, who is quite active on Instagram, had shared pictures of her parents on her profile in the recent past. Tara had taken to Instagram to share a picture of her father, Shafqat Mahmood, and her mother, from her profile a couple of weeks ago. 

Here are a few screenshots of the students who, after finding out that Tara is the minister’s daughter, bombarded her with messages on Instagram, urging her to persuade him to allow online exams. 

Here is how they reacted:

So far, the actress has not responded to the messages. However, the education minister did tweet today about online exams, after the incident involving the protesting students and police made headlines. 

Mehmood had taken to Twitter to state: “Some university students are demanding that their exams should be online as they have been studying online.

“This is a decision for the universities to make, but I have asked HEC to consult VCs and see if it is possible given special circumstances this year,” he had said. 

The minister had added that universities “should also assess whether they have the technical ability to conduct online exam for all students, stressing that no student should be left behind.

“No one can be left behind. It is also necessary to ensure that the online exam system is not misused to get easy grades,” he wrote. “Preparing good question papers/ assessment is important.”
