Pakistan-born Afghan refugees to be granted nationality


Imran Khan made the remarks during his maiden visit to Karachi city on Sunday.
Calling it a established practice in countries around the world, Imran Khan said Afghans whose children have been raised and born in Pakistan will be granted citizenship.
He said the refugees have been unable to find decent legal jobs or get a quality which eventually forces them to indulge in criminal activities.
The Pakistani Prime Minister vowed that he will instruct his staff to make efforts without further delay for offering passports and National Identity Cards to the refugees who have come from Afghanistan and whose children are raised and born in Pakistan.
According to reports, millions of Afghan refugees are still based in Pakistan out of which around 1.5 million legally reside in the country.
According to the survey reports by the United Nations, at least 60 percent of Afghan refugees were either born in Pakistan or were minors when their parents migrated to the country.
