Reactions Continue Against Deportation of Afghans by Pakistan

The International Federation of Human Rights Defenders in a statement called on the international community and non-government human rights organizations to prevent the expulsion of Afghan refugees by Pakistan.

The organization in an open letter urged the prevention of deporting the civil rights activists, former military officials and some other individuals, whom are at risk in Afghanistan.

It also expressed criticism over delays in the issuance of visas for the Afghans and slow processing in asylum cases by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

"The UNHCR is not committed to its responsibilities," said Ehsan Khan, an Afghan refugee.

This comes as the Consul of the Islamic Emirate in Karachi, Abdul Jabar Takhari, said that efforts are underway to alleviate the challenges faced by the Afghans who possess legal documents.

"We have tried to make contact with the Sindh government to address the challenges of those Afghans who hold [PoR] cards," Takhari noted.

Meanwhile, the Afghan refugees who had been deported by Pakistan said they are concerned about the arrival of winter season.

Bibi Nazo is living with 10 members of her family in a tent in Kabul.

She called for help.

"They were keeping the Afghans in a prison while our children were at home. We have faced severe difficulties," she said.

"They have only helped me with 10,000 Afs at the border, while I have 13 family members,' said Abdullah, a deportee.

The Pakistani government has announced a new policy, which calls for over 1.73 million Afghan refugees to leave the country.
