Policeman swaps Islamabad for Blackburn

First published in News

A PAKISTANI police official has stopped off in Blackburn as part of a tour of the UK.

Khan Sakhwat Khan is deputy superintendent of police in Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan, and has visit the United Kingdom to learn more about law and governance.

He has been to cities up and down the country, paying visits to fire stations, police stations and local councils. The policeman was hosted in Blackburn by Bastwell councillor Raja Iftakhar Hussain.

Mr Khan said he has had the privilege of touring many other countries, but that he found the UK to be one of the best in terms of law and order and discipline.

He said his visit was very enjoyable and he was pleased to meet many local people.

Mr Khan said: “As a police officer, if you do the duty properly with honesty and dignity, it is the best form of prayer, where you get peace of mind in helping people, and the same goes for the politicians.”

Mr Khan, who funded the visit himself, also met Blackburn mayor Coun Salim Mulla, who discussed a number of national and international issues with him, and explained the key role the council plays in running the town.

Coun Iftakhar said: “I am proud as Mr Khan, who is a very honest officer from my village of Goleen, has changed many lives for the good.

“We need many more people like him.

Let's hope that his positivity and motivation is listened to by the councilors who have been hosting him.

Your missing the point !

Wasn't it you who whinged that certain Asian and minority stories did not have a comments section and as per usual you were bleating on how it was a race thing.

The point being , the no comments section works for both white and minority stories.
