Any claim or suggestion of his association with Iqra University is completely unfounded and misleading.”

The press release further stated that, “Mr. Barri procured his appointment in Iqra University on October 11, 2022, through fraud and misrepresentation based on fake educational documents and degrees.

Furthermore, Iqra University makes it explicitly clear that Mr Bari’s arrest in the current case in FIA, pertains to conduct post-termination from the Iqra University and criminal acts committed by him in his personal capacity. These criminal acts relate to the creation of fake identification (emails, social media etc) and the use of the said identification for posting defamatory and derogatory content against Iqra University and these acts have nothing to do with students of Iqra University.

The complainant in the criminal case is an individual whose identity was stolen by Mr Bari for the publication of defamatory emails through fake email IDs.

Iqra University remains dedicated to providing quality education and upholding the values of honesty and accountability.”
