The President of PSC, Mr. Fasihuddin was invited to a talk on the “Cause of Radicalism and Policing Terrorism in Pakistan” by the Centre of Applied Criminology, University of Huddersfield, UK on June 21, 2011. Prof. Alex Hirschfield, the Director of the Centre, other academics and research fellows appreciated the presentation and the efforts of the Pakistan Society of Criminology for an indigenous research work on the serious problems being faced by Pakistani nation and its law-enforcement agencies. The President of PSC and Editor-in-Chief of the Pakistan Journal of Criminology later on visited Foreign and Commonwealth Office at King Charles Street, London on June 22 and met the senior UK officers of the Counter-terrorism Department. The various constraints of the Pakistani police, especially of the KPK Police Department in combating radicalism and terrorism remained the focus of discussion. The present provincial chief of KPK Police has a vision of enhancing the capacity of the under-resourced KPK Police to effectively fight terrorism, reduce the chances of extremist feelings and opportunities, train the local police on conducting scientific investigation, and also wish to make them a human-rights friendly police. We expect a change in the department in the years to come, provided sufficient resources are available and the KPK Police find a committed and honest team of officers to turn this desire into a reality. The UK Government has shown interest into this new initiatives.
