PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon has claimed treating refugees with dignity and respect, rejecting allegations of harassment of the Afghan nationals.

Many Afghans often complain that despite possessing the required residency documents, they are harassed by the Pakistani security personnel.

However, Minister of State for States and Frontier Regions Shehryar Afridi insisted the Afghan refugees were being treated equally in Pakistani schools and hospitals.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Wednesday, he promised the government and people of Pakistan would never leave their Afghan brethren alone.

He said 1.6 million Afghan refugees had been given access to Pakistan’s banking system. The elements trying to create anarchy in the country would not succeed in their nefarious designs.
