Dear Editor, I want to draw your attention to a serious matter regarding articles and contributions in Pamir Times.
Well, Pamir Times is the only serious forum of expression of people of the region. It has gained a considerable readership as well as authenticity among the readers. Specially for the peopel who are away from their origin find it as a connecting plateform with thier origin.
Unfortunately, some of the contributors, ofcourse with fake identities, attribute writings to themselves which are actually the work of authorities on the subject. The particular article I want to draw your attention towards is “The Walking Economist” by some one Sher Bahadur. Who ever is he, has violated all the norms of writing and research. This is an article actually written in “Economic Survey”. You can cross check it on web pages : www.economicsforeveryone.com/files/uploads/Economics_for_Everyone_Chap1.pdf . The gentleman has associated it to himself not bothering even to parapharasing it, leave aside citation.
This kind of act is more than plagiarism. IT IS DISHONESTY. Please check the reliabilty of writer before publishing it. It will save Pamir Times from many hindrances.
Editor’s note: Dear Sher Baz Khan, Thank you for identifying this serious issue. I apologize for not being able to check originality of the article. I regret to agree with you that indeed there are dishonest people out there who still think that they can cheat the search engines and the rest of us. I hope that our contributors become conscious of the alert readers, if not their conscience.
