The Supreme Court has raised an important question at a hearing pertaining to a medical college admission case in Karachi. “Why should a hafiz-e-Quran student (a person who memorizes the Holy Quran) be given extra marks for university admissions?” Justice Qazi Faez Isa said on Monday.



A student from the Bolan University of Medical and Health Sciences, Quetta, has petitioned the top court after he being denied admission.
At a hearing on January 8, the petitioner, said that if he is given 20% additional marks for being a hafiz-e-Quran, he would be easily enrolled to the varsity on merit.
In 1987, Pakistan passed a law under which hafiz-e-Quran candidates are awarded 20 extra marks at every level after matriculation.
The apex court has sought clarity on the issue. “How are admissions into medical and other colleges linked to being a hafiz-e-Quran? Why should 20 marks extra be given on this basis?” Justice Isa asked.
“We believe that memorising the Quran is sacred. And it is a plus point when someone wants to become the imam of a mosque or a religious lecturer,” he remarked. “But how can a hafiz-e-Quran be a better doctor?”
The petitioner told the court that it was a complicated subject.

“Why are you scared of Islam? Religion is supposed to make things easier for us,” Justice Isa replied.
The apex court, consequently, dismissed the petition and decided to hold a separate hearing to discuss the matter. Notices have been issued to the Pakistan Medical Commission and others. “This is an important matter. A decision can be reached after discussion,” the Justice Isa said.​

Hifz e Quran has become less a labor of love and more of a prestige competition between parents now much as any other A Grade trophy kid showoff.

Religion isn’t for the child’s spiritual growth but to show off to family as a in the dystopian Pakistani society.

Hafiz shouldn't be memorising Quran to earn more marks but instead to please Allah.
You don't be the judge and jury. It takes years to memorise Quran and 10 marks are nothing compared to that.
Nobody will memorise Quran fir 10 marks. But government gives recognition of their hard work by giving them some preferences in education by some marks.
Because hifz is not an indicator of medical skills or knowledge. It is an indicator of how good you are at memorising the Quran (and understanding it)
And an indicator or dedication, hard work and great memory.

I know someone who got the job in Saudi Arabian Military industries just because she was a Hafiz e Quran and the person who hired her was a Hindu and he told her if you can memorise a whole book then you are capable to do this job and here we have a so called Muslim judge who have nothing better to do then to bark over non issues when whole justice system is completely pathetic.

No one is denying how hard it is to memorise the Holy Quran but being a Hafiz shouldn't give you an advantage in the form of extra marks when applying for fields that have little or nothing to do with Islamic Studies. The merit is already incredibly high especially in medicine where just one mark can decide whether you pass or fail the entry test for universities.

Quran teaches us humility and yet I have seen the families of Hafiz-e-Quran showing off their child as if he/she is superior. This can easily lead these children to the path of arrogance. My cousin who is a Hafiz-e-Quran by the grace of God has spoken against this multiple times.

You telling me the difference between passing and failing is if the student is a hafiz?

So producing incapable medics who would harm their patients?
Yeah right.
Qabalili and Balochi get admission on Quota system with barely 500 marks in FSC.
Most of them can't even write their names in English.
Likewise influential sandhill who pay a visit to examiner's home with a few guns, get 95% or more marks in FSC and get admission where they want, but can't write own name in English.
So don't tell me there are already a large quantity of undeserving doctors being made In Pakistan.
Does the SC have a problem with sports scholarships for universities as well?
Judiciary has a problem with everything related to Islam.

Hafiz should be given preference as he or she spent significant time on hifz , instead of school work. Even then scored high enough marks to need just another 10 marks to get admission.
That's a testimony of genius and higher academic capabilities.
