Minimum education for lawmakers - India and Pakistan

In Pakistan only graduates can be member of parliament. Wonder how many Indian parliament members will get disqualified if this law is applied to India.
Graduated member of parliament can understand laws better, but on the other hand graduates do not represent the people of our country. Can only the poor(?) and uneducated MPs represent the poor and uneducated people?.
To clarify, the law for minimum education was brought by Musharaff. Pakistan president is only High School pass, and he is thinking of repealing the amendment for minimum education so that he can become prime minister. Democracy is crazy.
