Ahsan Iqbal in NA

ISLAMABAD, Mar. 13(APP): Minister for Interior Ahsan Iqbal has said that Pakistan desires honorable and dignified return of Afghan refugees to their homeland.

Responding to a Calling Attention Notice in the National Assembly on Tuesday, he said that necessary arrangements have been put in place at NADRA offices so that these refugees could not illegally get Pakistani citizenship.

He clarified that these measures are not directed against the Pashtoon population who has given innumerable sacrifices in the war on terror.

He said we respect the sacrifices of Pashtoons as they have contributed to the stability of Pakistan.

The Minister said we desire to promote harmony to take forward the country.
