POLICING EXTREMISM and
TERRORISM IN PAKISTAN
The aforementioned points are by no means exhaustive and are very much fallible. The only purpose of stating these points is to initiate discourse that can think of policing as a ‘service’ to the society and not as an ‘instrument’ as envisaged by the Police Act, 1861. Approaching criminal justice in rule of law framework has the potential to bring about, in the words of Lord Denning, a ‘legal revolution’ as compared to much-touted ‘social revolution’ that may set the turf for a more peaceful and thoughtful society in Pakistan.
