RightsNow Pakistan (RNP) & Human Rights Alliance (HRA) call upon the Pakistani Government to ensure security of refugees, extension of validity of the PoR (Proof of residency) cards for Afghan refugees currently residing in Pakistan. Pakistan is host to one of the world’s largest and most protracted refugee situations with approximately 1.5 million registered and about a similar numbers or more unregistered Afghan refugees, most of whom fled the Soviet invasion in 1979. We believe that in all these years that number has increased because many Afghans have been born, schooled, raised and married whilst residing in Pakistan.
