They said that it was very difficult to meet the expenses of professional education from their meagre resources and they were not confident of completing their studies.

"This scholarship is but a beacon of light for every student belonging to underdeveloped areas like ours and has put a new zeal amongst the students to compete for achieving this honour," they added.

CWT offers scholarships for UK
Islamabad: United Kingdom based Charles Wallace Trust (CWT) offers scholarship opportunities in different disciplines for Pakistanis to focus on their professional development.

Applicants as old as 50 years are welcomed and encouraged to apply. Preference would be given to those who have never had foreign study opportunities before. The trust is interested in the individuals of Pakistan to fully realise their potential.

"I have been quite impressed by the scholars from Pakistan, as they are very lively, very enterprising and come from a variety of backgrounds," said CWT Secretary Tim Butchard while adding that some of the scholars were physicists, economists, artists and sculptors amongst other disciplines.

Advising prospective scholars Butchard said, "It's absolutely vital for scholars that they have thought through their objectives for the UK and have negotiated with the UK partners and universities to stand a good chance to receive this award." He added, "The Pakistani fellows should meet people and visit universities in the UK outside of the attachment of the CWT and actively disseminate their own knowledge as well, rather than just receive as students." He thanked the British Council Pakistan for their help in enabling the work of the CWT in funding Pakistani scholars.

Tim Butchard will be travelling the country to meet prospective scholars to enable them to conduct their short-term professional development attachments and research in the UK.

Student arrested in UK seeks consular service
London: One of the Pakistani students arrested in last week's anti-terrorism raids, Janas Khan, has sought Pakistan High Commission's consular service.

Meanwhile, the high commission has also obtained the names of four solicitors who are representing seven of the arrested students who have refused the offer of consular services. The commission is trying to contact the students through their solicitors.

Sources in the high commission said that the remaining two Pakistani students had refused consular services and have also requested authorities not to involve their families in the matter.All 12 persons were arrested on April 8 on suspicion of being involved in hatching plots to stage terrorist acts in the UK.

One, whose identity is yet to be established but believed to be a Bangladeshi, was released on the very second day, and of the remaining 11 still in custody, one is said to be Afghan national.

The UK authorities have so far not shared with Pakistani authorities even preliminary information about the students like their names, home addresses and the names of the institutions where these students were studying and the subjects they were studying; when they arrived in the UK and when do their visas expire.

Ignoring Pakistan's request to either put those arrested on trial, or to allow them to remain in the country to continue their studies, the UK authorities are said to have decided to let the police continue their investigation.

There has also been talk of deporting some of the arrested students against whom actionable evidence is not likely to be found.

Under the law, police could keep the suspects in custody for 28 days. So, police has 18 days more to marshal the required evidence to charge them.

Sighatullah Kadri, QC, a British lawyer of Pakistani origin, answered in the affirmative when asked if the UK authorities could deport the students even if the charges under which they were arrested were not found valid.

He said perhaps the police had arrested these students only on the basis of taped 'incriminating' conversation, but since taped conversation is not admissible in the court of law and also the MI5 itself would not like to use this evidence in the court fearing exposing its methods of investigations, the police is finding itself in a fix. "They do not want to let the suspects go scot-free because of what evidence they have but they cannot also keep them under detention beyond 28 days without coming up with actionable evidence." Dawn

Students held in UK
The sad news that 11 Pakistani nationals have been arrested in Britain on charges of terrorism. In this context, our Foreign Office has summoned Political Secretary of British High Commission on April 15 and asked him to convey to his government demand of Islamabad for the details regarding the arrest of Pakistani nationals with their charges, proof, if any that led to the incident. The whole nation is deeply perturbed over the arrest of its nationals. It has been learnt that so far no charge could be proved against them. They are students and have proper student visas. Their parents are spending a lot of money on education of their children in UK. If the arrested nationals are found innocent, then the British government must tender an apology and may allow these students to complete their education. Engr. Munawar Hussain

Pakistani scholars in UK eulogised
Islamabad: Charles Wallace Trust Secretary Tim Butchard Friday expressed his pride in Pakistani scholars.

"They have been very lively, very enterprising and come from a variety of backgrounds," said Mr Butchard, who is currently visiting Pakistan.

Speaking at the British Council, he praised a previous scholar, Afia Zia.

Attached to the centre for Gender and Religions Study of the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London, Afia distinguished herself by being not only a student but also a proactive teacher. She spoke at seminars in London, Warwick and Cambridge, and discussed issues relating to women in an Islamic society.

Mr Butchard hoped more people would follow her example.

Advising prospective scholars, he said: "It's absolutely vital for scholars that they have thought through their objectives for the UK and have negotiated with the UK partners and universities to stand a good chance to receive this award."

He added that Pakistani fellows should meet people and visit universities in the UK outside of the attachment of the trust and actively disseminate their own knowledge as well, rather than just receive as students.

Tim Butchard will be traveling the country to meet prospective scholars to enable them conduct their short-term professional development attachments and research in Britain.

Annually, the trust offers up to 20 scholarship opportunities to Pakistani students. These fellowships are focused on the scholar's professional development and the applications are administered and processed in partnership with the British Council Pakistan. Dawn
