Sindhi refugee couple concludes their protest after nine months
The Sindhi activists and journalist refugee couple from Pakistan, who have been giving protest sit-in in Delhi against their persecution by Pakistan High Commission in India, have concluded their 285 days long protest after submitting a Memorandum of Demand with the Prime Minister Office.

Zulfiqar Shah and Fatima Shah gave-protest sit in outside Press Club of India on October 14 last year, which they later on continued at Jantar Mantar near the Parliament house in Delhi. Both kept on staying there in the protest camp during nights.

In their memorandum, they have demanded the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to order an inquiry against the facilitation of Pakistan High Commission in India, which not only violated Shah’s medical as well as refugee rights, but also violated the Indian Constitution and the international law. The couple has also requested the prime minister for issuing directives either for recognizing them refugee in India or giving them stay permission in India until they are not being resettled elsewhere.

The couple at the moment is residing along with other Sindhi refugees in a refugee camp facilitated by OM Ganpati Shiv Balaji Samajik Uthan Trust. The Trust Chairman and Ekta Parishad associate A.K. Solanki is already looking after at least twenty Hindu refugee families from Pakistan in the camp.
