Almost one million Pakistanis set to enter Britain under false identity

Following Taliban invasion, Britain is opening its border for refugees from Afghanistan. A new resettlement scheme will be aimed at helping those most in need – including women and girls – to come to the UK. British official Dominic Raab did not confirm how many refugees would be able to come but said the UK was “a big-hearted nation”.

Raab told BBC Breakfast the UK had “always been a country that has provided safe haven for those fleeing persecution”.

Britain’s Parliament is being recalled from its summer recess on Wednesday to debate the situation in Afghanistan.

The BBC has been told the new resettlement scheme will be similar to that used to help Syrian refugees. Around 20,000 refugees who fled the conflict in Syria have been resettled in the UK under the scheme since it was launched in 2014.

In my opinion, the size of Afghan refugees shall not be restricted within few thousand as the number of the Syrian refugees. There will be at least few hundred thousand genuine refugees, while hundreds of thousands of Pakistani nationals – men, women and girls will enter Britain under the false identity of Afghans. And, for the UK authorities, it will be almost impossible to identify the real and fake Afghans. Meaning, more than half-a-million Pakistanis will enter Britain taking undue advantage of the miseries of the Afghans. There will be similar attempt by the Pakistani fake Afghans in entering those EU nations as well as other countries in the world, particularly those in the Middle East.

The US Department of Defense could be housing 30,000 Afghan refugees in locations like Fort McCoy in Wisconsin and Fort Bliss in Texas.

Meanwhile, according to a Business Insider report, the US Department of Defense could be planning to make room for some 30,000 Afghan refugees at US Army garrisons like Fort Bliss in Texas, and Fort McCoy in Wisconsin.

Here again, majority of those Afghans seeking asylum in the US will be Pakistani nationals with fake identities.

In Afghanistan, thousands of inmates, including former Islamic State and Al Qaeda fighters, were released from a prison on the outskirts of Kabul as the Taliban called for a “peaceful transition” of power.

While Taliban has been gradually consolidating power in Afghanistan, human trafficking rackets based in Pakistan are busy in taking money from those prospective fake Afghans, who are willing to enter the US, Britain, EU nations and the Middle East, as a number of countries have already expressed readiness in accepting refugees from Afghanistan.

In Pakistani cities, including those bordering Afghanistan, members of the human trafficking rackets have put large signs in various shops stating – “Register here for entering US, UK and other countries as Afghan refugees”. Some of these human trafficking rackets are linked with notorious terror don Dawood Ibrahim’s D Company.

Meanwhile, according to media reports, Afghans are so desperate to evacuate Kabul that many are clinging to US Military planes as they take off from Kabul’s Hamid Karzai Airport and tragically falling to their death seconds after take off.

Over the past few days, the entire war-torn nation of Afghanistan has been taken over by the religious extremists Taliban, who have vowed to exact revenge on any Afghan national who helped US military operations over the past two decades.

As a result. many are so desperate to flee that the tarmac at the Kabul airport is filled with desperate Afghans trying to board a flight for evacuation and even sitting on wings and clinging to the exterior as they take off for safe harbor. The Wall Street Journal confirmed the deaths citing a US official:

A U.S. official also said at least three Afghans clinging to the side of an Air Force jet evacuating personnel from the airport were run over and killed. Video images from the chaotic scene showed desperate Afghans clinging to the side of a U.S. military plane moving on the tarmac.

Separately, witnesses reported seeing three bloodied bodies, including that of one woman, lying on the ground just outside the terminal building.

Images and videos have begun to emerge on Twitter that tell this horrifying story. The videos below embedded from Twitter show the horrifying scenes which come with a clear warning that they show the eventual deaths of those falling from the plane.
