2 Pak students arrested in UK return home
Islamabad: Two Pakistani students arrested in Britain in connection with an alleged terror plot returned home on Saturday after dropping a legal battle against their deportation and accusing British authorities of ill-treatment during detention.

Abdul Wahab Khan and Shoaib Khan were among the 12 Pakistani students arrested in April during the Operation Pathway. The British authorities later failed to bring up charges against them, but decided to deport them for being 'security risk'.

The two students, along with others detained during the terror raids, had appealed against the deportation decision and the Special Immigration Appeals Commission was scheduled to take up their appeal in March next year.

However, Wahab and Shoaib subsequently decided to leave UK voluntarily after a court rejected their plea for bail, while their appeal against deportation was being heard.

Mr Amjad Malik, the lawyer for both students, told reporters on arrival in Islamabad that his clients were frequently strip-searched, subjected to searches by dogs and served contaminated food.

One of the students, Wahab, described his detention as "hell" and said it showed that the British had no concept of justice.

The allegations were rejected by the British High Commission as "unfounded".

"Whilst in detention, these individuals were afforded the full protection of the UK justice system," the statement said, adding the UK Government treats all those in detention in UK prisons fairly and humanely, regardless of their nationality, race or religion.

It said except for one complaint by their lawyer on Aug 14 about contaminated food, there were no complaints by any of the detainees.

Speaking particularly about the two students, the British High Commission said: "In the case of these individuals one took up the opportunity to take part in an education course; and both used the prison gymnasium, exercised frequently and were free to worship and undertake other activities in accordance with Islamic teachings."

Students urged to excel in science, maths
Islamabad: Leader of the House Senator Nayyar Bukhari said on Saturday Mathematics is everywhere, all around and its useful applications in business, industry, politics and other fields of basics science are especially strong.

He was speaking as a chief guest at the inaugural ceremony of 10th International Pure Mathematics Society conference of Quaid-e-Azam University here.

He commended the Pakistan Mathematical Society for "demonstrating extraordinary vision and leadership by arranging a forum to address on the most potent and significant issues of the time", he said.
Recalling the history of Science and mathematics, he said it dated back many centuries. Science provides mathematics with interesting problems to investigate, and mathematics provides science with powerful tools to use in analysing data, he maintained.

"Mathematics also contributes more generally to engineering, as in describing complex systems whose behaviours can then be simulated by computer", he said, adding that computer technology has also opened up whole new areas in mathematics, even its very nature of proof and it also continues to help solve previously daunting problems.

Leader of the House said the field of mathematics, both in pure and applied form, can readily be identified as one of the critical pillar upon which the entire structure of science and knowledge is established.

Meanwhile, Nayyar Bukhari said that the government of Pakistan People's Party has identified several science and engineering fields as key national priority areas.

"The government has launched multiple programmes to build national and intellectual capacity for the disciplines to take root and flourish universities", he said.

He assured that the government would endeavour to focus on raising the standards of teaching and learning in our schools. He said in this way they are placing special emphasis on improving the quality of mathematics education on priority basis.

"In order to succeed in our information based society, students must have a solid understanding of the basics reading, science, history, arts and especially mathematics, he remarked.

He was confident that the conference will not only provide useful forum to the participants to share their experiences in promoting mathematics, but will also benefit them professionally. The Nation
