hello and welcome to the program piron i'm more than two million afghan refugees in pakistan now living in uncertainty as a deadline for them to leave the country expired on saturday the government in islamabad announced last year that all afghan refugees must return to their homeland a proof of registration cards have been extended a number of times but the government says eventually they will all have to leave for many of these refugees pakistan is and always has been home afghan families first began seeking asylum in pakistan in one nine hundred seventy nine when so many of them were born and raised there they also say conditions are not safe enough for them to return but the pakistani government says its economy cannot afford what it calls the burden of the refugees any longer the has more from the capital islamabad. ever since the russian and raise you know vanished on nineteen

2:24 am
day to nine the government of pakistan was likely to increase that deadline. and to ease the suffering of the of one refugees in exonerating across this country this is to modify the reporting for insight story from islamabad. well almost one point four million registered afghan refugees were living in pakistan at the beginning of this year the un's refugee agency estimates up to one million registered refugees were also there since then only twenty one thousand that's fewer than one percent have returned to afghanistan that's according to the un's humanitarian office around one hundred fifty thousand left last year when pakistan first announced its repatriation plans but fewer than half the registered refugees helped by the u.n. h.c.r. the others either went back on their own accord or were deported by pakistan. but let's bring in our guest now joining us from kabul is riaz some other former
2:25 am
afghan refugee in pakistan who returned to afghanistan in two thousand and three here in the heart of either an investigative journalist from pakistan and also from kabul as william carter head of the un's farm program at the norwegian refugee council a very warm welcome to all of you must to say that let me start with you. should the deadline for afghan refugees to leave pakistan be extended once again what is at stake here for them. thank you very much for having me here. i believe it should be extended there is a need for extension and the government of pakistan shouldn't be using the refugees as a political pressure at the moment. when government doesn't have that capacity of the moment to absorb those huge number of refugees and the government can privatize government of afghanistan can prioritize different categories of for refugees which can be observed for example those who have some established
2:26 am
businesses or those who have related in family members abroad but those who are living with very limited means in pakistan will be very difficult for them to to absorb and to adjust to the environment of afghanistan so the government of pakistan should comply to the reform in principle and extend this deadline. of y. off to hosting afghan refugees for nearly forty decades has pakistan started repatriating them and made such a priority of it in the last two here is why at this time. well the on says very clear since because a government in the falling government of afghanistan has been drilling is has been ruled by its own people and there has been no plan as such as to how the refugees are going to go back there is no public pressure as such on the flounder if it is to be returned to be repatriated there is
2:27 am
a sympathy there is that brotherhood that was there in nine hundred seventy nine to a great degree but when there are incidents of terrorism and some of one day if it is are found involved in them or in political protests like by student office movement the recent political upsurge then it raises some concerns more so because of economic reasons as come on deported from istanbul but. has been in distress for various you know the reason for various reasons internal issues corruption mismanagement and no. have these all of them snowball and create a scenario for. a plan from afghanistan for the creation and understanding generally is that of what is done is not serious about taking the responsibility of the refugees as much as that if you want to stay and pakistan and a stand there were liberal it be the same feeling of ownership is not there in
2:28 am
kabul mr william cotta do you think of gunfire is in a position to take these refugees back given the number of violent attacks and the instability that continues in the country i mean just last year to three thousand five hundred thirty eight people were killed in attacks both in seven thousand engine. yes we would agree that now would not be the best time for people to be encouraged to return back to afghanistan security instance of going up control over parts of the country has really gone down and the situation is very very fragile and uncertain with the elections coming we saw a large wave of people of refugees feeling forced to return in two thousand and sixteen from pakistan to eastern afghanistan. it's a very tenuous position province on the border with pakistan. as say in
2:29 am
the islamic states aligned groups fight with the taliban fight with the governments and international military forces it's a province where the mother of all bombs was dropped last year a province where just a few months ago our colleagues at save the children in eastern afghanistan were unfortunately attacks it's really a unsafe situation right now we also say that in our own studies and research which rates released earlier in this year and generally pointed out of those hundreds and thousands of people that come back in two thousand and sixteen many of them had been forced to flee again or leave their homes because of insecurity or because they haven't found a basic services available to them and so really there's not a solution here just yet we really hope that the government of pakistan remains patients and that the incest community can support refugee staying in pakistan who have been very on the whole generous host over four decades of. hosting of sting
2:30 am
afghan refugees but now really is not the right time for people to feel forced or encouraged to come back and that's another that well what do you make of that because you know u.s. citing the security and economic reasons that pakistan is considering and sending these refugees back but as mr carter has been saying there is a rail security problem where there is a lack of it and of ghana fan so how much how high is that a factor in the pakistani government's consideration here well that's a very well of point insecurity in afghanistan has risen and this is a sign that the government in kabul is not effective which does is the concern in the there's the whole would these refugees eventually go back if it's if gabble keeps losing control and militants whether they are days. taliban or other factions they continue to go and gain more space and operate in larger areas than they were like five years ago or two years ago or that concern where the much exists or what
2:31 am
is it what is more important is the commitment that gobbles showed or lacks to show on the table and in its plans as my friend sadat said in kabul that did this should be a priority there should be a serious and and discussion about how in phased manner all these refugees can go there is little progress on that account and the stomach feels that these this political politicize ation of the issue which is being said and. helps. washington and other stakeholders realize that this is not obliged to continue this hospital a tea for a very long time on the other hand i would just give you any separate example there is this movement called open the border in southern syria. and jordan for jordan to open the border but at the same time jordan is saying that we need support for
2:32 am
buggiest on the same has been not there for a for a long time and instead there is a recent list at issue of pakistan for in f. eighty s. financial action task force all these things did not co-exist in pakistan continues to take the responsibility that is due to it on the name of neighborhood and humanity but then washington which needs support continues to press it. against the wall yet so pakistan you know has taken and great number of afghan refugees obviously in more than anyone else and you're saying that it has not received the international support that it needed to do so this to say that let me come back to you because you were actually an afghan refugee in pakistan so what was your experience of that but also of returning to afghanistan did you have the support you needed when you returned. thank you well i lived in pakistan as
2:33 am
a refugee camp for about fourteen years and i grew up there i had my primary and secondary schooling there. we lived in a mad housing and difficult situation but we thought that how life was we didn't know how difficult life our situation was that now we knew we were in difficult but at the time we thought that wasn't normal life for everyone the time we were returning after the fall of taliban in two thousand and three. we thought in pakistan but we are taking a very difficult decision and we're going to a place specially for me that i had never been before to couple so when we came in the beginning it was a bit difficult to adjust but soon soon after we realized that our parents had taken a very positive decision and when i asked was it about all of a thing as saying that school parent then it was their decision then it was
2:34 am
voluntary. it was a it was a voluntary decision that we left because i got the camp in pakistan which sure as soon was build those later but our immigration to pakistan was forced then and there was but the returning was of course a voluntary the time comparing a plan is of two thousand and three with two thousand and eighteen it's quite different in an situation has improved in terms of infrastructure or economy or job in and other terms and at the time we thought it was the sort of the life was difficult in the beginning in the few months but later on we were very happy with our decision and right now when i look look back at the past years that i've lived in afghanistan and of their progeny of these that we have grabbed and used i think we couldn't do that in pakistan so there are such opportunities for the refugees in
2:35 am
their attorneys who are coming back they're not available in pakistan for them but if they come here. they can utilize them in and use them for great mr katter how many of the refugees who returned have an experience that similar to this to say that switch was positive because the un says that. returns have to be voluntary safe and dignified but is that often the case. those first ernst's to be good and well managed yes they do need to be safe voluntary and dignified and every every refugee registered or not in pakistan has a right to it out of their own free will and we're its support that along with other agencies but. what it was unclear or clear in two thousand and sixteen when we saw six hundred thousand refugees come back very suddenly. the course of
2:36 am
four or five months. many hadn't been prepared so many were not very well informed about the conditions they were returning to so it's these are standards which we have to to uphold and encourage the governments of pakistan to make sure happens and. as the voluntary or patch ration process is a very sensitive one that needs to be done with enough time for people to make informed decisions some of those people who return many years ago this was. a process which they've been very happy with but we have to make sure that when tempers run high and patients runs thin that we can still support refugees to make an informed decision to come back and ideally to an area where it's safe and where they have access to basic services but that is the opposite of what i saw and what we saw when we were in eastern afghanistan two years ago it's in thousands of
2:37 am
families living in open shelter or no shelter conditions overcrowding and unfinished buildings i saw. children sleeping in the mud next to livestock heavily pregnant women feeling suddenly forced to return at this point some of them giving birth. in the few days of having returned so there have been instances in the past which we hope are not repeated in which this was a less than ideal scenario but we are hopeful that back in. minutes will continue to show its its mercy and reprieve for afghan refugees to stay as long as they need to particularly whilst still it says have not ceased in afghanistan mr ahmed the time in the incidents that mr carter is talking about two years ago was when tensions and tempers were running high following deadly attacks in pakistan and both you and mr savant have spoken about how afghan refugees have been used as
2:38 am
a political tool between these two countries how can you make sure that this doesn't happen again. there is a road there could be this is not a new situation if you have been the better at it from various parts of the world and that as it is a method to do it the issue is that how do you can take it as it is that a road map on the afghanistan stable and how it managed one wants to get it implemented on its site if one government gives losing security of its districts and districts keep falling today short taliban every now and then in a month like three to four how would that framework be implemented so the primary question is is afghanistan safe enough for any refused to come back and the second to question is that whether pakistan is financially is strong enough to deal with the presence of so many people who are not paying taxes who are burden on resources
2:39 am
who have contributed to economy as well but not to the extent as they would have had they been citizens and well equipped so there is there is a minute of questions that need to be addressed it's not just as simple that they are being politicized there are genuine concerns which are imminent from security economy and of course humanitarian concern that they will be killed or recruited by the taliban and they should once they cross the border line so on and above all whole of government reacts to it's by this time is it is it speaking the language of india which it has been. sons intelligence agency has been using of on the pakistani side for political purposes by launching a movement against the military or. political parties there are these delicate issues that need to be understood and confidence level what the past six months or so has really it isn't there is a track active track to diplomacy going on and i hope there will be a way out and
2:40 am
a framework that could be debated publicly and also within the government and this is about what do you make of all of those concerns coming from the pakistani side are they being addressed adequately by the government of honest. well let me make a comment here that first if we look at the security situation in afghanistan it's not ideal but that does not mean that of the didn't should stop because of the security situation if the security situation is so worst fan the people who are currently living in evanston should also go somewhere else what we are more concerned in afghanistan about returns is the economic situation and that integration into society here. security will be the same for all and we have hope and peace wilkinson in and there is life in afghanistan there are businesses and
2:41 am
kind of so much is going on so security shouldn't be the main or the major reason for them of not returning there is another economic problems and we should be focusing on that so the government of afghanistan or not on the government of afghanistan but all stakeholders in the refugee situation have their own responsibilities than they have to perform them. starting from atlanta stand they have to look into different categories of refugees in afghanistan for example those who have established businesses in pakistan and in the good life that they can come easily and in a just level and son's life or they have they should have a smooth transition for their companies in factories into afghanistan all those skilled laborers that we have in pakistan government if you get in packs and they can come to afghanistan and they can have decent lives in afghanistan too or could be exported as a labor skilled laborers to the middle east countries apart from that those afghans living in pakistan who have their family members abroad in wiston countries or in
2:42 am
the middle east can have decent lives in afghanistan without any problem similarly that of afghans who are working in afghanistan but their families still live in pakistan afghanistan should promote in and ask them to bring their families back to venice. now the remains the people who. have a difficult life living in pakistan they have very limited means of life there then that's difficult for open government to adjust yeah so our government should think about policies implementing policies for their housing and for their placement in afghanistan mr carter everything that we've spoken about requires a lot of support and a lot of finance as well international organizations the international community doing everything it can to support these millions of people. in afghanistan there is quite
2:43 am
a well established humanitarian and developments community here which is working on this issue. really it's up to us to supports in this respect the government to be able to increase the absorptive capacity of service delivery so that health facilities educational facilities don't get overwhelmed with this but also some of the the longer term issues that would help report not just come back and survive but hopefully thrive so for example looking at who where people can live and looking at access to jobs from this side of the border the incest currency is present it is difficult to work but we're committed to. we're working with the governments to help increase this capacity for a longer term solution but the government really needs more more time we need to be more patient with it it's got. elections coming up it's got. his friends
2:44 am
rebuilds a lot of it's states institutions and there's multiple emergencies internally affecting that afghanistan has it is an emerging drought so it is internal displacement in the don't have very long left of the program and i'd just like to pick up on something that you mentioned which is a long term solution and put that to both of our guests quickly before we end how do you find a long term solution because these sort of ad hoc extensions and unpredictability extending their stay for one to three to six months is not sustainable mr sat up and start with you before going to my staff and. and so so because of course the situation of refugees and backs and shouldn't be doing as in an emergency situation a long term solutions that are very important and then how do we do that so as i mentioned before the categorization of different refugees in return is that how do you have just easily later on there should be policies in programs for example that
2:45 am
to train or are those return easy or with a specific job or or another skill i saya that i am sure i work for that we only have a very long left so i will give the last word to mr ahmed here in doha thank you. yeah i think the real issue is the security situation the political dialogue between taliban and the government of afghanistan should be supported by all stakeholders and that's where the key lies and once that elite is develop some confidence building measures i think pakistan and afghanistan can come back to the table for discuss a framework and a plan of return or back creation a few days or mr ahmed thank you very much for that and thank you to all of our guests that as the as father and couple that lived in the hot and william kata also in kabul and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website al-jazeera dot com of

2:52 am
are in the government having no idea where their parents are so they can try to reunite them that really has sent people over the edge there may have been an estimated thirty thousand people here in lafayette park for the past couple of hours for this rally entitled families belong together they're now marching down pennsylvania avenue to the justice department headquarters to take their message that the trumpet ministration needs to change its policies on immigration joining me now to talk more about the rally and about what he has seen personally the trumpet ministrations impact is hector of sanchez bottom by he is the executive director of the labor council for a lot of american advancement this is not just bought about thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera first your reaction to the turnout at the rally here in washington today powerful what a beautiful day we had a summation of the birth as a nation a nation kind of color so kind of the language is so kind not. only in the show
2:53 am
named in the nomination but he spoke of a city that he's well enough to make it on some nation but to say that they burn a cd and form a nation. most people do the world feel international embarrassment for the because of the president believes in this white house this is not cool we should be something. we have lived behind horrible in the. very. exclusive an awful awful kind of money comes and makes the beginning. but we are not good. a democracy and we come on a long way to the see the rights movement to the boarding rights movement to making sure that we had a better them and do they this is what we saw through these whether we are not only here but a little bit of the nation so clear message of where the we want to go democracy in the united states it's now well established that public pressure and public anger
2:54 am
over the separation of very young children from their parents forced the administration to change in some part its zero tolerance policy on immigration but now there's the prospect of perhaps twenty thousand people men women and children living on military bases indefinitely while the trumpet ministration thinks about getting rid of their due process rights to apply for asylum what is the work from your perspective that needs to be done in order to challenge this policy is very clear that this press to the needs are not going to stop here star being clearly showing us the scholars say mexico rapers muslims are terrorists and criminals african americans we made and he went after everybody and we do not represent a minority in this nation he's very good at what he's coming from a nice and very very true. sauron the by the most extent nice voice is seen these nations in the helping to implement extent in the nation the message that we have
2:55 am
imposed very clear. to the nation in the west in the border there. don't even do that then since and there. was almost one hundred degrees in the middle of the better sun. then. we really want to be so the message that we want that we want to send. the energy so powerful all over the nation i got to stop it but what in the nation thing what else can we do how else can i be of benefit for our democracy what else can we gauge so we're turning all these into political power. it's important to help only reflect on the the course of the nation of the day burns to be of the nation what we have here is they'll also be some group of people corporate people white males see it all on them standing on the diversity of the nation the needs of the nation
2:56 am
but what we're doing we're going to go think will be still be elections the ball reduced the nation getting the ball born and doing more mobile essentials more rallies running people of color for all noble soulful feats of the local boon to the national level and by putting to show that we serve. we will leave it there that the sanctions bottom thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera thank you for the things i think you and sue will last send it back to you i know that there are many more hundreds of demonstrations just like this one taking place across the united states that indeed that's was jordan there with the latest on that protest in washington d.c. with us with protesters in new york. we know this is right across the country even in places like mike pence his home state of indiana there are protests it's really caught the imagination of so many people right across the united states. it really has organizers are predicting that at the end of the day here at the end of saturday there will be protests in all fifty states which is really remarkable i
2:57 am
mean we're used to seeing protests in new york city of course given its diversity and it being such a big city with so many social justice organizations here we saw huge protests during the so-called muslim band that the top administration implemented when he first came into power and then of course in washington d.c. protests as well but now we're seeing them like you said in the state of indiana we've also seen the protests on saturday in houston texas texas of course being the heart of where this story is really taking place down there on the border with mexico we're seeing protests in other states are. around the country as well states that we normally would not necessarily see protests such as this taking place more socially conservative states we are seeing protests happening there as well just gives you an idea of how much the country really is mobilizing how much so many americans are coming out today the people that live here in this country americans
2:58 am
as well with a message that the message at least at this new york rally that just ended now as a message is this is not who we are as a country that's what the protesters here were trying to say just your new york city well over ten thousand people some pro some organizers saying it might have been twenty thousand just here in new york city so huge crowds we're seeing here and then also in other parts of the country as well and gave you mention the buddha you've been to those detention centers just recently and you've seen for yourself what's been going on there as far as tongue in translating this disaffection from the public across the country into actually making changes that what is the likelihood that the voices hair are going to make a difference. well you know you just simply don't know i mean clearly the more protests you have throughout the country the bigger they are the more that washington has a tendency to listen however there's a problem for that many people here that are calling for
2:59 am
a change in policy and that problem for them is that the white house is controlled by republican donald trump and all of the congress is controlled by the republican party as well as a republican majority so this is the party that has been implementing these policies led by the president donald trump and that's why a lot of protesters here that we spoke to felt like they didn't have a friend in washington they didn't have any lawmakers who would help them overturn policies so that's why many people here said the only thing they felt they could do was take to the streets yell scream as loud as they could that no matter who can. trolls washington no matter what political party people did not want to see this happening and that's why they were out on the streets in such force will it affect policy we simply just don't know yet gabriel is under there giving us the latest from that protest in new york. coming up on this news out from london sunday's a
