Save Naj Hashimi

2,679 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Najibullah Hashimi , Naj to his friends, came to this country four years ago from Pakistan, although he is from Afghanistan originally. He is now 18 years of age and has been fighting to stay in the UK more or less since his arrival. During this time he has been given an education at SCC, Sittingbourne, Kent where he is currently still studying. He has fully embraced the British way of life, including learning the language, while quietly retaining his own religion. In short he has done everything and more than anyone could expect and he has gained the respect of all who come into contact with him. Any father would be proud to have him as a son. Shortly after arriving in Sittingbourne he joined Rodmersham Cricket Club where he proved a more than useful all rounder with bat and ball. Once again he has gained the respect of all and when presented with this year's Captain's Award it was to the most thunderous applause of the evening. Unfortunately he has lost his appeal to stay in the UK and six weeks ago was put on weekly reporting restrictions at a police station 25 miles away!! Last week he was arrested and taken to a holding centre in Folkestone and today (13th) has been given an air ticket to Afghanistan for Monday 18th March. He has no family in the country anymore and has not been there since he was 11 years of age. What is he to do, where is he to go, when he steps off the plane? Such is his popularity and such is there a feeling of injustice, particularly considering recent news items of appeals by unsavoury characters, that the cricket club, his school and of course his friends have arranged a petition. If you believe that Naj has been unfairly treated we urge you to sign up quickly. Further work is going on behind the scenes but to save Naj we need your support now!!

    Just saw the article for Naj Hashimi, a year too late. This is such a shame...what ended up happening to him, would love to know.
