Candidates baffle over ‘comedy of errors’ in SPSC MCQ paper

The Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) held a MCQ paper of Islamic Studies and it has now been revealed that the paper was full of blatant errors, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday. 

There were multiple questions in the MCQ paper where even the correct options were not provided that left the candidates perplexed, confused and concerned.  

The candidates said one of the questions was about when the interest (riba) was declared haram in Islam but all the four options given were incorrect. Also, all the four options were incorrect when asked about the name of the Companion of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) who was appointed as the Governor in Yemen.

Similarly, a question asked who ordered Hazrat Ali Hajwary Data Ganj Baksh to preach in Lahore but again all the four options were wrong. Another question on Hadith was again got no correct option. 

The candidates who appeared in the exam alleged that with all these wrong answers, blue-eyed candidates might get the favour.
