Pleading with the Enemy

Human rights activist, journalist and writer Zulfiqar Shah and his activist wife Fatima Shah are refugees from Pakistan’s Sindh province who have applied for asylum in India. As of 12 November, they have been sitting outside the Press Club of India for 28 days in protest of their alleged persecution by the Pakistan High Commission in India. They have accused the PHC of interfering with their attempts to seek medical treatment at various institutions in Delhi, and have also accused Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency of attempting to poison them in December 2012, when both were living and working in Kathmandu, Nepal. They demand that the Indian Government step in to prevent PHC interference, claiming that since they were granted asylum by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Nepal, they are now no longer under Pakistan’s jurisdiction
