Singer Asim Azhar has once again raised concerns over children taking in-person exams amid rising coronavirus cases.

“There’s still time,” the singer tweeted. “Have mercy on students.”

Federal Education Minister Shafqat Mehmood announced on April 6 in an NCOC meeting that exams will begin on May 10 with strict SOPs as decided by the Cambridge board in March. He revealed that over 40,000 students will sit for their O and A level exams. “I want students to focus on studying instead of getting distracted,” he said. 

Asim was one of the few celebrities who requested the minister to review their decision and reschedule exams as students were “really disturbed”.

With only 20 days left, the singer has urged the minister to revise his decision again.

“Who will be responsible if kids take COVID-19 back home just so they could appear in exams?” he said.

Hadiqa Kiani had earlier remarked that the government should look for an alternative plan that doesn’t put students’ lives at risk.

Pakistan is battling the third wave of the coronavirus, with 5,445 new cases and 137 deaths reported in the last 24 hours.
