DAWN ( June 14) has the news item that ‘the deadline for Afghan refugee repatriation may have to be extended’ much against the wishes of the people of Pakistan.

We want their arms, drugs and terrorism stopped in Pakistan and the fact that they are living freely here, thriving in business of all sorts should not be allowed.

The Pakistan-Afghan borders should be sealed and the refugees sent back.

This is the main problem of our country’s destruction and we appeal to the government not to allow the refugees to stay a day longer than the deadline.

After all, the Afghan government and their countrymen are always stabbing us in the back and will continue to do so.

What about the refugees who are living for 35 years, their children are going to schools and colleges, with the repatraition the future of these children will be completely darkened. This young generation of Afghans are completelty dissolved in the culture and environment of Pakistan.. they think Pakistan as their own country and love Pakistan as much as any Pakistani. Besides this They are well settled in Pakistan and it will be a great problem for them because majority of refugees will be without shelter if they return their home..
