Assalam O Alikum Brother's & Sisters.
Today, I am visiting Peshawar City to get some food stuff, clothes, medicines etc for Ashiyana Camp II, Waziristan. This is a kind of bheek (Bagging) mission, we are visiting Mosques, Roads, Localities etc to get the things, Many are here who are asking what is happening at Waziristan and IDPs & unfortunately I dont have the words to tell them what is happening there. Hundreds of the peoples are living without shelters, proper food many of them are suffering from several disease, many of them had lost there families and others terrible things. But, in short I would like to stat as a responsible Pakistani & being a Muslim.
"The Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are in acute trouble because the Tan district administration is unable to provide them with basic amenities.
Thousands of IDPs from the militancy-haunted South Waziristan are behaved like refugees from another country. There is one registration and one ration distribution centers in Tank for thousands of people.
The IDPs are forced to stand in long queues for the whole day and then police often baton-charge them, which leaves elderly, women and children injured. These all are shameful and disgusted.
We demands of the government to increase the number of NADRA mobile units in Tank in order to facilitate the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
We wants that the government should establish atleast three to four NADRA centers so that the IDPs could get their identity cards with ease and comfort, adding that the available single center was not sufficient to meet the growing need of the people.
We would like to inform that most of the aged men and women were without Identity cards, which creates problems both for the law enforcing agencies and the IDPs equally.
Several time men, women, children and the elderly men injured because of stampede after police baton-charging in Tank. The Assistant Coordination Officer of the Tank district be removed forthwith as his attitude towards the IDPs is callous.
Meanwhile migration of displaced persons to Dera Ismail Khan and Tank from the war-battered South Waziristan continues.
The registration centers formed for the IDPs are also insufficient and measures should be taken to increase those centers to facilitate the IDPs.
He said that the government should take accelerated steps to provide the IDPs with tents ahead of the fast-approaching winter season.
There should be efficient administrations to discharge its responsibilities in efficient manner to facilitate the IDPs otherwise it will be difficult to win the support and sympathies of the refugees.
We would like to tell you that there were some 10 to 15 thousands IDPs living in miserable condition in the adjacent North Waziristan’s Mir Ali and Miranshah who didn’t get any aid from the government so far.
The IDPs are totally not satisfied with the government. The government should come forward to chalk out a strategy to facilitate the refugees without further delay."
Brothers & sisters, I have state the real facts & figures which I have observed at my visit of Tank, Dera Ismail Khan and many of the other areas of Waziristan.
I believe that many of the Pakistanis watns to know more and more about the current situation of war areas. Due to high profile security reason, I wont be able to write for here for it as my concern is only to accomodate the IDPs, to work for the IDPs to supply food, medicines to IDPs in a proper manner. Although, still here is no such kind of the arrangemnt found by the Govt or others NGO. Purhaps due to security reasons or else. But people of the effected areas wants to know that how long this condition will run with them. An I dont have any sufficient answer of this question.
Once again I am requesting to all of the Pakistani nataion as well as Muslims arround the glob, that please please please dont leav them alone in this time if we leave them in the same situation this will be cause for another change of mind or change in society in themselves.
