A significant number of illegal foreigners, totalling 4,02,312, including many Afghans, have been repatriated to their homeland in a dignified and safe manner.
The ongoing process ensures the return of illegal foreign nationals, including Afghans, back to their countries. To facilitate the return, transit camps equipped with necessary amenities have been established in various districts to accommodate these individuals temporarily.
Radio Pakistan reported that thousands of Afghans are returning to their homeland daily through the Chaman and Torkham borders, expressing gratitude towards Pakistan for its generosity. Recently, an additional 3,776 illegal Afghan nationals returned to Afghanistan.
Caretaker Provincial Information Minister Jan Achakzai emphasized the government’s determination to repatriate illegal immigrants. With a daily target of deporting 10,000 immigrants, the process has so far seen the return of 135,000 illegal immigrants to Afghanistan, marking a gradual but steady progress towards success.
Achakzai also highlighted the involvement of some Afghans in sixteen bomb attacks and sabotage incidents over a year. The government’s policy mandates that even those holding an Afghani Tazkira or any other document must comply with the government’s one-document regime and cannot avoid deportation.
