Deportation of Afghan Immigrants is Against Intl Norms: Hanafi

The second deputy of the Prime Minister, Mullah Abdul Salam Hanafi, who visited Torkham crossing to assess the situation of Afghan immigrants deporting from Pakistan, said that the deportation of Afghan immigrants from Pakistan is against all international norms and principles.

Hanafi said that the current Afghan government is fully ready to address the challenges of the Afghan refugees coming from Pakistan.

“Forced deportation of immigrants is against all norms. Now that this is being done and our brothers and sisters come, this is their home. If there are problems, now we have to do it and this is a mandatory task. This is their homeland and we will do our best,” Hanafi noted.

This comes as the process of deporting Afghan immigrants from Pakistan has intensified in an unprecedented way in the past three days.

Some returnees said that many have left their homes and all their properties in Pakistan, and some families have even been forced to sell their household items for a small price.

"They told those that they knew that if you don't leave before the 1 November, we will treat you illegally,” Zabihullah, a returnee, told TOLOnews.

"People's businesses and properties are all left in Pakistan. If the price of something was 500,000 now it is sold for 150,000,” Noor Khan, another returnee told TOLOnews.

Meanwhile, some other returnees said that on the eve of winter, the lack of shelter and basic life facilities are serious challenges that they are facing.

They asked the Islamic Emirate and the aid institutions to help them as soon as possible.

"They should at least provide food and tents for us. They should provide food and consumption for everyone for at least two to three months,” said Abdullah, a returnee.

"My house, life and family are left there. They are very cruel, no one would do the same injustice that Pakistan does to us,” said Rahmdad Khan, another returnee.

According to the information provided by the local officials of Nangarhar, in the past few weeks, about 20,000 families have returned to the country from Torkham.
