Pakistanis Have Mixed Feelings About Imran Khan Offering Nationality To Pakistan-Born Bengalis And Afghans

By Ramsha Bhatti | 17 Sep, 2018

The new government has tried to take some bold moves in order to change decades old, obsolete practices in the country. While some resonated surprisingly well with the public, others received major retaliation from the masses. Remember Atif Mian‘s appointment and how controversial it was?

 

PTI has now come into action with a new agenda: establishing the grounds for nationality for Pakistan-born Bengalis and Afghans.

Much to everyone’s surprise, there is a specific law regarding the matter since decades but has remained ignored. 

 

Needless to say, the news has managed to gather a buck load of attention, with a lot of mixed responses from Pakistanis!

 

Many have responded positively to the decision and are appreciating PM Imran Khan for the step. 

 

Some people shared stories of their personal encounters with Bengal refugees to highlight the importance of the political stance.

 

People were actually happy that Bengalis and Afghans residing in Pakistan will finally get to have their identity. 

 

While the decision, itself, might come off as a celebration to children belonging to refugee families, some Pakistanis are not as ecstatic.

 

Many people definitely don’t support the decision for various economic and political reasons.

 

Saeed Ghani, of PPP, has also resented the decision and has his own reservations.

 

People were particularly angry about Afghan inclusion in the plan

 

And then there were people who were simply not impressed

 

Do you think this was the right step? Is this a step forward in terms of national inclusion? Let us know what you think about PM Imran Khan’s decision.
