'American dreams' of Afghan Hindus, Sikhs delay airlift
The American and Canadian dream of many Afghan Sikhs and Hindus is delaying their evacuation from Kabul even as those mediating with them have alerted them to quickly decide before the Indian government concludes its rescue operation.
Around 70 to 80 Afghan Sikhs and Hindus in Gurdwara Karte Parwan did not want to migrate to India as they are keen on moving to Canada or the US, Indian World Forum president Puneet Singh Chandhok told on Tuesday. These Afghan nationals were not only creating obstacles in the evacuation process but also delaying the evacuation of others, he said.
印度世界论坛主席Puneet Singh Chandhok周二表示，Gurdwara Karte Parwan约有70至80名阿富汗锡克教徒和印度教徒不想去印度，他们想移民加拿大或美国。他说，这些阿富汗人不仅在撤离过程中制造阻碍，还拖延了其他人的撤离。
"India is facilitating these people at the highest level, yet they have missed flights twice in order to travel to the US or Canada," he alleged. In the first video released by Afghan Sikhs and Hindus after taking shelter in Gurdwara Karte Parwan, one of their leaders, Talwinder Singh, had specifically stated that they should be migrated to Canada or the US.
他称：“印度尽最大能力为这些人提供便利，然而他们为了前往美国或加拿大而两次错过航班。”在阿富汗锡克教徒和印度教徒在Gurdwara Karte Parwan避难后发布的第一个视频中，他们的一名领袖Talwinder Singh明确表示，应该把他们转移到加拿大或美国。
Sources said that a Sikh organisation had assured evacuation of all Afghan Sikhs and Hindus in a chartered plane following which around 100 had arrived outside Kabul airport but could not gain entry. It was not clear whether or not a chartered flight was waiting for them.
A source in Afghanistan said, "What is the harm in seeking migration to the US or Canada? We know the fate of those who migrated to India. There are no job opportunities and many of them either returned or moved to other countries".
Govt should not waste time & money in bringing people not interested in coming to India.
The government should let them stay back, why bother
Staying back and following Islam will have no problem finding job with Talibani, locally if they are really worried about the job and not the staying alive, even in the US and Canada the unemployment rate is high and surely won't get doll money. The government shouldn't waste time after these morons
Respect their wishes. It's pretty obvious they do not care about India. Why should the government or Indian tax payer foot their bill. Best of luck to them. Hopefully they will get where they want to go. India should care about folks who care about India. It's pretty obvious these people do not.
India should leave such people as they wanna be n focus on other people who genuinely want to be helped. It's a shame that these selfish hypocrites consider India as a less favorable place to live n grow than US or Canada.
Won't be surprised if US sends them to Uganda
India should not bring in these people who are such an opportunist to pick and choose Canada or USA over their mother land during war. Let Taliban decides their fate.
Mai Hu Bhakt
what's the problem...let the A holes go to US...who cares??
Why force them? They obviously don't want to move to a third world country like India, that's very much clear. Let them take their chance for better countries like USA and Canada if they wish.
These idiots don't deserve CAA! May Taliban capture them!
What a news!! Hindus not wanting to go to india.
India should follow US idealogy of religious tolerance. All religions are welcome in US but not in India. Any body can convert in US to any religion using money help, idealogy or any thing else. Hindus converted lot of christains in US in the name of yoga, preaching etc and no one cries as religion is personal matter in the US. I am seeing lot of whites in temples in India, Europe and USA.
why our government waste our tax payers money on non intrested peoples. leave tham.
We dont want any refugees...stop all flights to india from Afghan and only bring those contract workers,security staff and govt employees who are indians. Maxmum we can help is bring back nepalese,sri lankans and hand over to their countries.
Leave them there to convert to Islam, they probably haven't heard of the proverb:-One bird in hand is better than 2 in bush.Foolish people don't waste your time.
One who don't wish to return to India can't be considered Indian, why the government should worry about them, let them be slaves of Canada or America
Let them rot in that hell, I wonder what they were doing in Afghanistan at first place
bar them entering to india.let them be converted. its better such soles are not allowed to come to India
If some people would not like to like to be in India, why should our government be interested in their safety merely because of their ethnicity.
Leave them to their destiny. they have to choose between life vs death.
Best of luck to them, India is not a suitable country for them.
