Afghan refugees protest in Delhi, demand spiritual care and salary hike

New Delhi: Hundreds of Refugees from Afghanistan staged a protest before the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to demand several benefits including refugee cards, resettlement options in third world countries, and assurance of security from the global body and the Indian government.

Placards like “Refugee situation in India are very unfortunate” and “We refugees do need spiritual care and financial support” are being waved at the UNHCR office. Most of the young Afghanis were demanding the authority to work in India with better salaries. They also wanted spiritual care from their religious masters. 

The Indian government, on a large basis, has approved the applications of a large number of desperate Afghan citizens who wanted to come to India following the takeover of the war-torn country by the Taliban. 

The crowd shouted slogans like ‘We want future’, ‘We want Justice’, and ‘No More Silence’.
