Hekmatyar’s son seeks facilities for returning refugees
PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Former prime minister Gulbadin Hekmatyar’s son has voiced concern over the alleged mishandling of Afghan refugees by Pakistani security personnel.
Habibur Rehman Hekmatyar, addressing a grand jirga in Khyber Pakhunkhwa’s garrison town of Kohat, asked the Pakistani government to ensure dignified repatriation of refugees to their homeland.
Properties and businesses of returning families had been destroyed, he said, adding the security situation was not satisfactory in the war-torn country and the returnees were not provided basic facilities.
Held at the Ghamkol camp, the jirga urged the Ashraf Ghani administration to provide all facilities to the refugees upon their return to Afghanistan. Malik Haroon, Malik Wilayat Khan and others spoke on the occasion.
