Overseas Pakistanis in crisis.

EDITORIAL: Overseas Pakistanis in crisis?

Oman has repatriated over 2,000 illegal Pakistanis in one month. These were people who had been smuggled across the Gulf by fraudulent travel agents and hidden in the Omani mountains with the promise that they would be ‘regularised’. Pakistanis have also returned from Qatar where once they outnumbered the Indians and sent in good remittances. Now their number is dwindling because Qatar prefers Indians to Pakistanis. Rules of immigration have been made strict, especially for Pakistanis, and what was ‘regularised’ in the past is firmly illegal now. What is happening?

Overseas Pakistanis once had easy entry into the United States. They went on tourist visas and did not come back. In some cases they earned their livelihood for years without being asked if they had a valid visa. A large number of them have now been compelled by circumstances to make an exodus from the United States, spreading out to neighbouring Canada or coming back to Pakistan. Sri Lanka, which still gives visas on landing, has caught scores of Pakistanis trying to use Sri Lanka as a launching pad for a flight to the West. As regulations have been made strict everywhere, they tend to get stranded in airports. Under pressure from the European Union the Sri Lankan government has begun putting such Pakistanis in jail and repatriating them in the most humiliating conditions.

Turkey has been the ‘frontline’ state for Pakistanis ‘trying their luck’ for Europe. The final destination was always the United Kingdom, but after laws of entry became tight there they tended to get stranded in France. This dammed-up fleeing population has been trickling into Belgium too. Across the sea from Turkey, Greece too has been a midway state where Pakistanis have stopped to become cheap sailors for Greek oil tankers. A large number of them have become permanently stuck in Italy too. This year, because of the changing attitude in host countries, a number of them have either got killed crossing from Turkey into Greece, or from Greece into what was formerly Yugoslavia. A number of them have been rounded up in Turkey and sent back.

Three trends are in evidence. There is stricter watch on Pakistanis trying to get in illegally. This was not the case in the past, and many Pakistanis abroad came to fall in the ‘regularised’ category. The other trend is to discriminate against the Pakistanis and force them to leave after duly ‘profiling’ them. In the case of Qatar, there is also the new trend of no longer opting to have Pakistanis for jobs in Qatar. In the UK, official reaction against an ill-integrating, protesting and, at times, fanatical Muslim population is slowly becoming evident. This is evident from Pakistanis living in the Middle East who phone in to express their views on TV channels and often express extremist views that host countries justifiably don’t like. For example, the Hizb al-Tahrir organisation of Arab origin, banned recently in Pakistan, is headed by a Pakistani-born British citizen in the UK; and the more extreme Al Muhajiroun, led by an Arab, Sheikh Bakri, has strong Pakistani-born second-echelon leadership.

Inside Pakistan, the public view of the countries where most Pakistanis want to go to is no longer friendly. This is not a good thing at all if we want to get our people employed abroad. For example, one ‘scholar’ who has recently appealed to the government to come to the help of expatriate Pakistanis in the Gulf has often expressed the kind of xenophobic views that hurt migration. Pakistan has earned over $4 billion a year from remittances after 2001; India earns $11 billion. But the Indian expatriates are much better integrated and are looked upon as useful citizens by many countries now busy profiling Pakistanis. That is one other reason why we should tone down our angry rhetoric and tell our workers abroad that they must integrate into the societies they live in and shun extremism. *

Saalon ki aisi hi lagni chahiye!

Dimwits go overseas and spread their crap all around. Who wants such crappy folks?

Good that their own Muslim brethren are now looking at the Pakis with suspicion and kicking them out!

Unless the Europeans

realise that Pakistanis are the scum spreading fanaticism, they will have 9/11's on their own soil.

This is the editorial of a Pakistani news paper. if the dimwit pakis can understand the result of fanaticism, lets hope the equally dimwit europeans will soon too.

Some days ago

or rather a few months ago I had posted that Denmark which is a very open and liberal society decided to stop immigration for Pakistanis and other Arabs. They saw that these folks come to Denmark under 'political asylum' or 'persecution' cateogry and then soak up the welfare system.

Infact one poster for a election was shown with a little small white girl looking towards a big group of immigrants with the slogan to the effect - "Do you want your grandchild in this Denmark?"
