Kyrgyzstan Violence: No Help from Pakistani Embassy, Students Reveal in Emotional Distress

Lahore: Pakistani students who managed to return home safely after escaping the violence in Kyrgyzstan emotionally recounted their ordeal, revealing distressing details. They lamented the lack of assistance from the Pakistani embassy during their ordeal, highlighting the harrowing experience they endured without support.

The students said they returned to Pakistan on their own. There are approximately 10,000 Pakistani students in Kyrgyzstan, many of whom are currently facing difficulties. They are waiting for assistance from the embassy, but no support has been provided. The embassy did not contact them. They were surprised to hear that the embassy had claimed to be in contact with the students and had taken responsibility for their safety.

It is worth noting that the returning students were welcomed by Interior Minister Mohsin Naqvi, along with the Chief Operating Officer of Lahore Airport and other senior officials.

At Lahore Airport, a returning student from Bishkek, Shahzaib, recounted that the conflict started when Egyptian students beat up local boys. During the fight, videos were made, and the Egyptian students uploaded these videos on social media. After the videos went viral, chaos ensued.

Student Shahzaib mentioned that local transporters were also assaulting foreign students, while the university administration was lying about the situation. Moreover, students were even attacked in their residential flats. Locals searched for them and beat them up. Locals surrounded the flats overnight and attacked people.

The student stated that no place is safe, with reports of students being assaulted on the streets. The local police took 2 to 3 hours to arrive at the scene and were reluctant to cooperate.
