PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon’s rightwing political party Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) has warned forced repatriation of Afghan refugees will create problems between the neighbours.


Senator Sirajul Haq, head of the influential party, on Thursday asked the federal government not to forcibly repatriate the Afghan refugees until lasting peace was brought to their country.

During a visit to Samar Bagh area in Timergara district, he told journalists: “Afghans have been staying in Pakistan for years in line with an international treaty.

“If we forcibly send them back, we’ll be losing the fruit of our of 35 years hospitality,” he remarked, making a strong pitch for closer relations with neighbours.

The senator also underlined the need for sincere efforts to bring stability to Afghanistaninfo-icon. Peace in the war-torn country was in the best interest of all regional states, he believed.
