Police has been the institution that has been neglected over the number of years, even though it is also in the frontline of fighting the war on terror. Its personnel have laid down their lives for the security of the country. But the image of the institution is marred with corruption and nepotism. It is imperative that if Pakistan is to succeed against the nefarious elements, it has to strengthen its police force, in order to restore the law and order in the country. Sweeping reforms are required within the police force, so they can tackle the menace of terrorism. Yasir Hameed Islamabad
