Mass copying at Harvard

It is reported that more than 100 students in Political Science course in Harvard University had resorted to mass copying and other unfair means in a subject called "Introduction to Congress". The university is considering punitive steps against them.

What would have been the reaction if a similar event had taken place in India in a subject called "Introduction to Parliament"? The university would have applauded them for learning so quickly how to adopt unfair means which would stand them in good stead as and when they become parliamentarians. Students adopting unfair means and worse would immediately have got certificates of merit. Budding parliamentarians!
