Hazrat's Home is Here
I am 17 and I was born in the village of Damen in the Bihsud District, Nangahar Province of Afghanistan.
When I arrived in the UK I was 13 years old. I did not know the language at all and felt lost and confused after the journey. I was refused asylum because of what the judge described as “inconsistencies” in my story, mostly to do with dates that I could not remember. The judge also believed that I could contact people back in Afghanistan if I needed to – I could not. I appealed against the decision, but my lawyers submitted the final appeal one day to late so it was refused.
I have grown up here from 13 to 17. I lived with a foster family until I left school and am now living independently but with support from Trafford Social Services. I live in South Manchester, have lots of friends here and visit with my foster family.
I am very worried about being sent back to Afghanistan, the Taliban would want to kill me and I would know no one. I would have no where to stay and would have no contact with family. Manchester is my home now and I want to stay here. My case is up for review in September. I am at the beginning of my campaign so please sign and tell your friends too.
