The police did a good job in saving the capital from a terrorism incident through their excellent performance, by arresting five terrorists related to TTP. A few months ago another terrorist cell had been taken out by the capital police, who were planning to target high security zones in Islamabad. It should be realised by the authorities as well as the citizens that the police are on the frontlines in the combat against terrorism. Both the authorities and the public should cooperate with this institution and push for reforms within the police, so they can perform their duties in a better manner.
