Pak student wants compensation for '13-month hell' in UK
London: A Pakistani student, arrested in bungled "Operation Pathway"
and later on cleared of involvement in an alleged terror plot by the
London High Court, has demanded that he should be compensated for his
Shoaib Khan, 31, won his appeal against deportation
to Pakistan last Tuesday. The Accountancy student was part of the
infamous North West 10, the group of Pakistani men arrested last April.
None of them was charged by Greater Manchester Police due to lack of
evidence. But the government wanted to send them back to Pakistan,
arguing that they are still a danger to Britain.
Amjad Malik said that his client's life had been ruined.
The Rochdale-based lawyer said, "Shoaib was considered a threat for 13
months. He should be compensated for his lost year of study, tuition
fees, and humiliation, which he has to go through for months. He and
the other students lost their studies, careers, and livelihood and will
carry the blame for the rest of their lives. Whether they were innocent
or not, who will believe them [after] a judgement is declared against
those who appealed [their deportation]?"
"Shoaib got through, but the march on the road to justice is still on," Ajmal remarked.
will now apply for a new student visa in order to enter Britain in a
bid to rebuild his life. Malik also represented Tariq-ur-Rehman and
Abdul Wahab Khan, who both lost their appeals against deportation.
Eight of them have now been deported.
Ahmed Faraz Khan won his appeal against deportation along with Abid
Naseer because of the risk of torture if he returns to Pakistan.
slammed the police for their handling of the anti-terror raids dubbed
Operation Pathway. "They should have vetted the evidence through the
Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to ensure that they will be able to
secure convictions on the basis of the evidence they had."
Special Immigration Appeals Commission found on secret evidence that
some of the men are a threat. However, none were charged.

operative of Al-Qaeda is a serious offence in this country and the
avenue is open for the home secretary to explore this and bring a trial
before the crown court.
In a statement, Greater Manchester Police
said, "On Wednesday April 8, 2009, following the receipt of information
that required action, officers from the North West Counter Terrorism
Unit arrested 12 men under the Terrorism Act."
They were later released into the custody of the UK Borders Agency. "Public
safety is always the police's top priority and all information is fully
considered and acted upon appropriately to minimise risk to the public." The nation

Order in medical college admission case reserved
Peshawar: The Peshawar High Court has reserved its order in a
review petition filed by a disabled student seeking admission to a
public sector medical college against seats reserved for the disabled.
Qasim, suffering from polio, had been denied admission by the joint
admission committee on the basis of recommendations of the disability
committee of the medical colleges. The committed had recommended five
other students for admission in the 2007-08 session.
petitioner claimed that the said five students were children of
influential people, including doctors, and were suffering from common
diseases and had no permanent disability.
The bench comprising
Justice Dost Mohammad Khan and Justice Imtiaz Ali heard arguments
advanced by the counsel of the petitioner, Khyber Medical College (KMC)
and the five students, Zainul Abideen, Sundus Ghani, Amna Ahmed,
Mahreen and Faheemullah Khan.
The petitioner claimed that one of
the admitted students was suffering from diabetes, another from liver
ailment and one from some skin infection.
During the course of
proceedings, Justice Dost Mohammad wondered how diabetes could be
termed permanent disability by the concerned committee.
bench observed if the medical colleges had been accepting such wider
definition of disability they should also increase the number of such
reserved seats. "In future students suffering from common diseases
including cardiac ailment, kidney problem, tuberculosis, etc. will also
apply on reserved seats for disabled persons on the same ground,"
Justice Dost Mohammad observed.
The bench further observed that
unfortunately certain elements in the health profession were involved
in unfair means which had damaged the health delivery system and
deserving persons were deprived of their due rights.
petitioner's counsel, Rehmanullah Khan, contended that under the
Disabled Persons (Employment and Rehabilitation) Ordinance, 1981, a
person suffering from diabetes could not be termed disabled.
Ghulam Shoaib Jallay, appearing for the KMC, said the definition of
disability was different in the prospectus and the disability committee
concerned had recommended them (admitted students) after thorough
scrutiny. He argued that the petitioner had appeared in entry tests
held in subsequent years and thus she had waived her right to challenge
the issue in the court.
He contended that even if the court
declared the admission of any of the students as illegal, the
petitioner could not be given any benefit because she was at serial No.
14 of the merit list that year.
The bench observed that none of
the other affected students had approached the court which meant that
they were not aggrieved with these admissions or they had patched up
the matter and due to the same reason the benefit, if any, would be
given to the petitioner. Dawn

centre, which was held here and presided over by Vice-chancellor Prof
Dr Azmat Hayat Khan. The meeting also approved construction of hostel
for the female students of the centre.
The degree courses in
Islamic banking would not only provide useful experts to the banking
sectors, but also generate income for the centre, which is facing
financial problems these days.
Director of the Sheikh Zayed
Islamic Centre Prof Dr Dost Muhammad said since its establishment in
early 1980s, the enrollment of students at the centre had increased
from 50 to 500 students.
The director said the centre faced a
financial deficit of Rs7.8 million this year. He said the centre
reimbursed tuition fees and other charges worth Rs2.2 million to the
students hailing from the affected areas.
The government or
the Higher Education Commission did not made up for this financial
burden of the centre, he added. He said the courses like BS computer
sciences and Islamic banking courses would help the centre overcome its
economic problem. The news
