Advocating for Pakistani Asylum Seekers: A Commitment Unveiled

On January 28, 2017, in Budapest, a significant stride was made by the Farrukh Saif Foundation, a merged organization dedicated to the welfare of global asylum seekers. In an international gathering of 17 organizations, it stood out for its exclusive focus on the hardships facing the Pakistani asylum seeker community in Thailand, Malaysia, and Sri Lanka.

Addressing the Plight of the Displaced  

While no definitive decision has yet been reached, our foundation has assured the Hungarian Government of our commitment to support our Pakistani brethren. We have pledged that they will not become a burden on the Hungarian state. This reassurance is part of ECSPE’s broader effort to shoulder the responsibilities for these affected individuals by covering travel expenses and collaborating with partner organizations for their resettlement.

Debunking Misinformation  

It is important to address circulating misinformation: any claims stating that lists of Pakistani asylum seekers have been prepared by the Hungarian Government, or that they are visiting the Immigration and Detention Center (IDC), are unequivocally false. These rumors merely play with the emotions of those affected.

A Specific Focus on Syrian and Iraqi Christians  

It should be noted that the Hungarian Government’s initiative was initially intended for Syrian and Iraqi Christians. However, recognizing the urgent needs of Pakistani asylum seekers, Farrukh Saif, has extended considerable efforts to include them in these humanitarian considerations.

A Hopeful Dialogue  

Prior to the event, Keith Davies and Farrukh Saif met with the Head of the Mission for the Persecuted. In their discussions, ECSPE submitted a detailed petition advocating on behalf of the Pakistani communities. Our dialogue aimed to persuade the Mission to accept Pakistani asylum seekers for resettlement programs, with final decisions now resting in their hands.

Our dedication to this cause underscores our foundation’s resolve to not only highlight but actively address the challenges facing Pakistani asylum seekers. As we continue these efforts, it remains our hope that more organizations and governmental entities will join us in providing the necessary support and solutions for these vulnerable populations.

**Join Us in Making a Difference**

We call on everyone to support our mission in providing aid and advocating for the rights of Pakistani asylum seekers worldwide. Together, we can make a meaningful impact in the lives of those who need it most.
