Students of Foundation for Advancement of Sciences and Technology (FAST) university are no longer proud of their degrees as the authorities take rigorous actions towards students who made fun of the institution on social media.

The university that has campuses in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, and Chiniot-Faisalabad in Pakistan has punished its students for posting memes in a private Facebook group.

The directives come straight from the disciplinary committee, who is punishing more than 20 students. The punishments include written apologies, community work, expulsion, 1-year expulsion,1-year grade down, and more.

Comedian Shehzad Ghias took it to his official Facebook page to express his concern regarding the matter:

What draconian world do we live in? FAST is expelling students for making memes about FAST.

Internet, please do your thing and make as many memes about FAST as you can.

“Stop Impression of Students,” says a Twitter user tweeting under the #ShameOnFAST

“State needs to protect and nourish its future for these students look up to it as its only guardian.”

Students are ashamed of their degree after FAST took such rigorous actions towards its students for light-hearted jokes.

A user on Twitter said, “You are toying with their (Students) future to soothe your egos!”

Muhammad Anas Bhatti, who is one of the students from the list, can’t believe he has been punished for posting 5-6 memes in a private Facebook group.
