Pakistani student arrested in UK | Peshawar FSc Physics paper

Man to move UK court if arrested son deported
Peshawar, April 14: Father of a Pakistani student arrested in Britain has announced to move court in the United Kingdom, if his son was deported before completing his studies.

Abid Naseer, one of the 11 Pakistanis arrested in the UK on suspected involvement in a terrorist plot, is going to complete his studies in information technology and his visa would expire in September this year, said Nasrullah Jan Khattak, father of Abid, while talking to media persons at his residence in Hayatabad here Monday.

"Our government took no step for the release of my son and the other Pakistani students arrested in a fictitious case due to which the worries of their families are multiplying. If my son is deported before completion of his studies, I will move court in England to seek justice," he said.

Nasrullah said after doing his graduation from the historic Islamia College Peshawar, his son went to England for higher education in information technology. "I spent a lot of money on the education of my son. I will ask for the money I spent on sending him to England and his educational requirements there," he declared.

The worried father said that his family had suffered a deep shock and insult as a result of the arrest of his son, who, he added, was innocent and had no links with any terrorist or militant organisation. "He is being punished for sporting beard and offering five-time prayers," he said.

He rejected as baseless the reports that appeared in the British media that his son belonged to tribal areas, saying he hailed from Yaghi area of Ghulamkhel tribe in Takht Nusrati tehsil of Karak district. Nasrullah said that besides Abid, he had six sons and a daughter. "We shifted to Peshawar in 1987," he added. The aggrieved citizen said his was a religious-minded family but this does not mean that his son had any link with a terrorist group. He urged the government to take prompt and effective measures for an early release of all the arrested Pakistani students. The government should also take steps to save the careers of all the arrested students, as in case of their deportation their future would be spoiled, he said.

Father blames Islamophobia for son's arrest in UK
London: The father of a Pakistani computer science student detained last week in the UK has defended his son, calling him victim of anti-Muslim discrimination, reports 'The Guardian'.

"This is all about his prayers and his beard. I am his father and I know him. He is not involved in any mysterious plot," the man, whose son was one of 11 Pakistani students picked up in raids across the north-western England last week, told the paper.

Meanwhile, one of the 12 men arrested in the raids was released by police but handed over to the UK Border Agency as a probable preliminary step to deportation.

Searches of properties in Manchester and Liverpool were scaled down on Sunday, as police were given a further seven days by magistrates to continue questioning the other men detained.

They are understood to range in age from 22 to 41 and to be in the UK on student visas. But the father of one said his son was a cricket-loving, religious-minded young man from a good family who was only interested in his studies.

Before making arrests, MI5 surveillance teams monitored his email and observed several suspects photographing shopping areas and a nightclub in Manchester.

The man's father told the daily by phone from Peshawar: "We have done nothing wrong. We have nothing to hide." According to the newspaper, since learning of the arrests, the suspect's father said there had been some serious reporting errors. For one, he said, his family came from Karak district in the South of the North West Frontier Province, not the tribal areas.

"This is a great offence," the man said, adding "We are from an old district, with educated people. Not the tribal belt." His son was in his third year of computer studies in Manchester and his visa was valid until next September. The last time he saw him was during the Eid ul-Fitr holiday last autumn.

"He appreciated the UK system, especially the freedom and facilities [it offered]. He was satisfied there-he could go to the mosque and he could study," the man said. The paper further reported that many of those arrested last week were Pashtuns from NWFP, and appeared to come from well-to-do families.

Meanwhile, the uncle of another suspect, speaking in an emotional voice by phone, told the Guardian that he and other relatives had regularly sent their nephew sums from 800 to 3,000 pounds to help pay for his studies. "He was too ambitious about his life and his studies. He was not up to any mischief. So I would say to the UK government, please do not spoil his future," he said.

Peshawar FSc students seek change in date of Physics Part-I paper
Peshawar: The Science Group candidates appearing in FSc Part I annual examination commencing from April 28 under the auspices of Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education Peshawar have asked the board authorities to conduct their Physics Part-I paper on May 21 at the tale-end of examination, instead of on May 6.

In an appeal to the chairman and controller of examinations of the BISE Peshawar, the FSc candidates and their parents stated that the date-sheet setter of the board had kept Urdu paper on May 4 while Physics on May 6, thus allotting just one day time to the candidates for revising Physics course work spread over 11 chapters.

It is worth mentioning here that this year, the Peshawar BISE authorities have also not allotted more than one-day preparation and course revising time to the F Sc Part II candidates appearing in their Physics annual examination.

The FSc Part II paper will be held on May 9, just at one-day gap after Urdu paper to be held on May 7. The coursework in Physics for FSc Part II is also equally difficult and lengthy like that of FSc Part I.

Chief Monk of Korea, Jeon Woon Deok, who is currently visiting Pakistan, has approved the site for the institute for which government has fully supported, Zulfiqar Rahim, director GACA told APP here Monday.

The project of reviving the fist university of the world which dates back to 700 B.C, will take 3-year to complete with the help of government, public and private agencies and Buddhist countries like Korea, Japan and China to restore the existing monastery in its original look.

The idea will also boost tourism industry of the country as the Buddhists from across the world will visit Pakistan to perform their holy rituals, he said. The GACA, he said, has also proposed the government to hold '21st Century Peace Caravan' organising from Taxila and travelling to China, Korea and Japan via Silk route.

The association organized a two-day seminar on 'Promotion and Preservation of Gandhara Art in Pakistan' in which the chief monk called for peace and harmony, as the world was facing religious conflicts and racial tensions.

While talking about the essence of Buddhism, the chief monk said that Gandhara was the hub of all cultures and religions while commercial activities of all the major religions of the world co-existed here in a very peaceful and harmonious way. Korea, China and Japan has traditionally Buddhist culture and it has roots in Gandhara, he remarked. The News
