Whither compassion?... By Sana

14 February, 2014

The tragic case of Shahzaib Bajwa has really struck a nerve with people everywhere in Pakistan. The 20-year-old lad was in the US for an exchange programme, studying at a university there for a semester. He was recently in a terrible car accident when the car he was in collided with a deer. He has been in a coma in a hospital over there but his visa expires soon and the insurance company is forcing his mother to sign off the documents required to send her son back home to Pakistan in his fragile, comatose condition.

This is horrendous and the government of Pakistan must implore Washington to have a heart and, for once, think beyond their ridiculous visa regimes where ordinary Pakistanis trying to live a decent life are denied travelling and residential privileges in other countries for flimsy reasons, particularly in the US. It is indeed a great travesty to heap upon a grieving mother this kind of decision.
