Dra. Sanaa Alimia: Since my time in Germany in 2014, as a so-called academic expert on Afghan migration, I have constantly been writing letters, supporting cases for asylum, petitioning for Afghan nationals to be not deported and allowed asylum. I was told then Afghanistan is a "safe country" or with "safe parts." I knew that was bullshit then. We knew the Taliban were making inroads then. So now. At least now!! Let people in. Support family reunification. Have some humanity. This is not 1995 all over again. Since 2001, Afghan society has changed. In and outside of the country. In Afghanistan, in the large diasporas in Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, and now Germany, Europe, Australia, and the countries. The situation for near 20 years has not been of peace. But it has been of hope. A new generation of younger people, confident, critical, and fun. This can only be heartbreaking for them. Pakistan has a large, beautiful, intelligent, diverse, and human Afghan population. Cities like Peshawar, were built, quite literally, by the hands of Afghan labourers. Karachi's bazars -- your Clifton bazars -- have a large Afghan presence and have done for well over 40 years. Our friends, our neighbours, our family. These cities and its ordinary people within it will feel the pain and concerns of what is happening in Afghanistan. They always have. Try, friends, to put pressure on the government -- and multiple governments. Try people, to change the narrative. Resist those who blame "refugees." Take responsibility for our governments failings (yes, even in Diaspora, I say our.) Take responsibility for our failings. May God protect the people of Afghanistan. May we all hang our heads in shame at the failures, hypocrisy, and duplicity of those military powers, states, corporations that have allowed this situation to occur again. Quick note: the Mujahidin of 1980s didn't just morph into Taliban. I worked with plenty of ordinary former Mujahidin members - office clerks, translators, & people who fought - who were anti-Taliban, critical of US war, & living ordinary lives in Pakistan.
