Syrian refugee: ‘Europeans are using our name to make money’

1396/6/21 | 10:21
Fatima’s husband and two of her brothers were killed by fighters in Syria. Fearing for her children’s lives, she escaped her homeland and embarked on an arduous journey to Morocco where the family posed as Moroccans and were able to cross into Europe. “Arriving in France was like the end of a bad dream, it was a new start for us.” Less than six months later, Fatima and her children are now begging on the streets. I first met Fatima (not her real name) at a slip road in the Saint-Denis suburb of Paris, home to the famous Stade de France. ...

A lost war: Why Afghan  has failed to control drugs spill over?

1395/7/19 | 10:21
Alarming reports have surfaced from Khurasan Camp of Afghan refugees in suburbs of Peshawar where women weaving carpets are reportedly feeding opium to their children which have rendered them drug addicts and illiterates at cost of commercial motives. The practice of drugging children with opium goes unnoticed by the government and concerned authorities putting the future of hundreds of young Afghans at stake.  A prime example is 12 years old Jawad, an ethnic Turkmen from Afghan refugee family living in Khurasan camp, who became drug addict ...

Extension in stay: Pakistan’s international politics on refugees

1395/7/2 | 10:21
 Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said Pakistan had served as a generous host to millions of Afghan refugees for the past four decades — the largest protracted refugee situation in the world. “While financial support from the international community has waned, Pakistan's hospitality has not,” the premier said while addressing the UN General Assembly's first-ever Summit for Refugees and Migrants on Monday. Pakistan has been hosting the world’s largest refugee population for a record period with serious implications for its society and economy. ...

Denying Citizenship right: Is Pakistan violating the basic human rights?

1395/5/23 | 10:21
Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Wednesday told the National Assembly that the children of Afghan refugees in Pakistan cannot be issued Pakistani citizenship documents. Answering queries during Question Hour, he said that the children of Afghan refugees were Afghans and not entitled to the privilege, even if their mothers were Pakistani citizens. Persons who were born in the territories now included in Pakistan or those whose parents or grandparents were born here before the commencement of Citizenship Act 1951 are considered citizens ...

 Stronger mettle: Commendable steadfastness of Merkel on refugees

1395/5/11 | 10:21
Angela Merkel has delivered a staunch defence of her open-door policy towards refugees, insisting she feels no guilt over a series of violent attacks in Germany and was right to allow hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees to arrive last summer. “A rejection of the humanitarian stance we took could have led to even worse consequences,” the German chancellor said, adding that the assailants “wanted to undermine our sense of community, our openness and our willingness to help people in need. We firmly reject this.” Three of the ...

Refugee’s burden: Why Wealthier nations are hesitant to share refugee’s saddle

1395/5/5 | 10:21
Despite being a developing economy, Pakistan hosts 1.56 million refugees – fourth highest number in the world. On the other hand, six wealthiest nations accommodate less than 9pc of the world’s refugees. This was revealed in a research study undertaken by Oxfam. The study released here on Monday said the poorer countries shoulder most of the responsibility and the richest countries should do much more to help the world’s most vulnerable people who have fled their homes because of violence and conflict. The top six countries hosting refugees ...

Xenophobia against refugees: Is there any panacea to the world’s growing humanitarian disaster?

1395/4/9 | 10:21
Forced to leave homes either to save lives or due to economic necessity, migrants have created political uncertainty and raised tough questions in places that pride themselves on their diversity. The US now has a presidential candidate whose campaign has been built around raising fears about the influx of migrants and refugees. While these problems have only recently gained attention in the West, Pakistan has been tackling mass migration and myriad of associated issues for decades. The world’s major conflict zones remain Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, ...

Managing Afghan migrants: Kabul’s lethargic policy on its own citizens

1395/3/18 | 10:21
 It is more than three and a half decades now that Afghan refugees are living in Pakistan, and among them there are criminals who are responsible for deteriorating law and order situation of the country. There is a widespread perception that they have become a security risk, as it is difficult to separate extremist elements who live in the disguise of refugees. It is high time that they are sent back, as nation wants them to leave the country immediately. Since Pakistan joined the war on terror, Pakistan suffered heavily in men and material, ...

Annoyed by Ashraf Ghani: Pakistan to send Afghan refugees back as dead line looms

1395/3/13 | 10:21
Pakistan is seeking world support for an early return of Afghan refugees to their own country due to its own pressing economic and security challenges. During his meeting with US President Barack Obama in October last year, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had sought Washington’s help to resolve the Afghan refugees’ problem, which the country has been facing for the last three decades. The legal stay of registered refugees actually ran out in Dec ’15, but the prime minister utulised his discretionary powers – at Kabul’s request, of course ...

Victim of own actions: West’s Xenophobia and populist politics worsening refugee’s crisis

1395/3/11 | 10:21
Germany has announced new legal measures requiring migrants and refugees to integrate into society in return for being allowed to live and work in the country. Under the coalition government’s measures, announced on Thursday morning, asylum seekers face cuts to support if they reject mandatory integration measures such as language classes or lessons in German laws or cultural basics. According to the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, the aim of Germany’s first ever integration law is to make it easier for asylum seekers to gain access to the ...

1395/2/16 | 10:21
 Fifteen migrants are missing after their boat sank on Friday, the second shipwreck that day in the Mediterranean, bringing the number of lives lost to almost 100, the UN said Sunday. A boat carrying around 120 people had sunk early Friday, four hours after leaving Libya for Italy, UN refugee agency (UNHCR) spokeswoman Carlotta Sami told AFP, adding that "some 15 persons went missing". Among the missing were four Nigerians, two people from the Ivory Coast, three from Guinea, two from Sudan and one from Mali, she said. Survivors were being ...

A decade long problem: Afghan refugees belong to no border

1395/1/6 | 10:21
Afghanistan’s refugee crisis is decades old. Afghans began fleeing the country after the Saur Revolution in 1978; more fled in the opening scenes of the Soviet invasion in 1979 and throughout the war. Another wave left during the civil war in the early 1990s, and when the Taliban seized control even more fled. The U.S.-led war in Afghanistan over the last decade has both pushed yet more Afghans to leave the country, while the U.S. and other international donors have invested in assisting returnees. The Costs of War project writes that “before ...

The Mechanics of Globalism – Migration as a weapon of war and ethno-engineering

1394/11/15 | 10:21
SHAFAQNA – Today, war refugees have become headlines onto themselves! Whether refer to as migrants or asylum seekers by a well-thinking media complex, the semantics of this new crisis nevertheless betrays a very globalist agenda – yet another engineering, yet another manipulation.With war raging on in the Middle East, millions of men, women, and children were forced to flee before the advances of terror. Trapped in a conflict which was not of their making, and hunted by armies which have sought only their enslavement – and/or annihilation, ...

Stripping refugees out of cash: Danish Govt the worst on the earth

1394/11/9 | 10:21
 The Danish parliament has approved a controversial law allowing authorities to seize refugees’ cash and valuables, and delay them being reunited with their families. After more than three hours of debate, the minority Liberal Party government's bill was adopted by 81 votes to 27, with the support of the opposition Social Democrats and the anti-immigration Danish People's Party (DPP). One politician abstained and 70 others were absent. Martin Henriksen, immigration spokesman for the populist DPP, used the debate to call for an extension ...

Change of Heart: Many refugees are leaving Sweden

1394/9/25 | 10:21
It seems that the number of refugees in Sweden who have withdrawn their asylum applications and fled the country has increased dramatically in recent months.According to the Iraqi envoy to Sweden, about 15-20 refugees a day come to the embassy with a request to give them temporary documents, so that they could leave the country.Many refugees are leaving Sweden because their expectations of the life there had not been met in Europe, the ambassador said. Read more: http://sputniknews.com/cartoons/20151215/1031788471/change-heart.html#ixzz3uWqHdBJd ...
