    I am Hamid an afghan citizen having Afghani Citizen Card from Nadra and UNHCR Collaborated ID Card,

    I am living in Islamabad g-11-2, I went to blue area 2 three times, wanted to buy Telenor Sim, but they rejected and even didn’t tell the reason. I mailed them for the registration

    this card was received to us from the highest authority of Pakistan, I admitted my self in University through this card, when going to Afghanistan and coming back to Pakistan; this card has a higher priority then passport, and those who has this card in Pakistan till 2015, can get License, can claim apartments. but can’t have SIM Cards. and they even don’t have the rejection cause, there is written 2012 in the expiry, but Pakistani Government on TV on the arrival of Nawaz Government announced on TV for the extending for Nadra AFghan Citizen Cards. and those Afghans who claimed Simcards in 2010, “11 ; their Simcards are active. not deactivated. but after 2012 afghans are not having the permission to take these cards through the ID card as I mentioned. and should contact other Pakistani members so they could get Simcards for them. I also worked in Roshan Company Sim Provider Afghanistan. and Pakistanies there can get Simcard by their own Nic Card. total big Diference. while afghans can’t take Cards by their Tazkera. Afghani National ID Card. Balochs and Pukhtons On North has a the biggest Islamic historical Cultural Pokhton Relationship. and I hope you revise their relationship from MoGhol Dynasty, >pukhton>Khoshal Khan Khatak, SherShah Sori Abdalis from three hundred years. and they are still a one bond. to their southern Asians and Western Asians. and from Qasim And Soltan Mahmood Ghaznawi the far historical Islamic RelationShip. and it would be a shame that Chinese Somalian Iranian arabs turks. with their small borders and little population could come and claim Simcards. I didn’t wanted to give this long statement. I am living in Islamabad from 1992 till now I had my passport bought everyday of living in Pakistan. I didn’t wanted to take any mobile and Simcard as there are alot of other issues. facing national humility from the passport office, home owners, police, and society members, afghans never mention in TV and Radio through these 20 years. we are in one border and we can’t change our lands. and afghans hear statements from Nawaz Sharif for defeating them, totally removing their military defence. from zia. on tv youtube. we have the most organized social system in europe. you can analyze statements of pm germany and england as you go the most to there. and what your iqball said. and i wish you had no roots from afghanistan from the moghol dynasty khans. and Islam. and it’s a shame while chinese somalian and other nationals take the high priority. if it is the issue. then there should be no cards just passport. no UNHCR million rupy funds for the afghans living in Pakistan. it’s a shame when Pakistan that humiliats afghans for going to afghanistan. and india with the ten times of his population accepts afghans. with no cards no passport. and the bigger funds for afghanstan not being the islamic nation. and we should not forget. you should ask A Q Khan. Who became the reason for providing you guies with ATB, that there is always humiliation of afghans ruining pakistan”go back to your country don’t ruin our country”. from zia till today. a 187 million people state to 27 million pupulation state. this is their hospitality. no rus entered pk. but you guies gave gnz to one and entered with sevone. millions died by hekmatiar. where he is? who where interviews him in television. analyze thousands died from oceans, turkey to greece, indonezia to austrlia. from 2005 till today. smglrz took 1000 dollars from these afghans. and humiliation in camps traskirkhin in germany france italy and east european countries. immigration starting time from tlbn time. the biggest immigrations. drowning in oceans. humiliation of afghans in their society. you can check the years who immigrated from afghanistan. and drowning the biggest cultural civilization. and the improvement of IBD.Rp Beukratical centre. business. I my self when tlb was there went to AFN. panjabi and urdu written language on everything. is the reason. y I am calling. still scultpures in taxilla in tatha punjab. y there is no ruining there. poverty in afghanistan today starts back from those time.
