June  27, 2009, Islamabad, Pakistan: These are some of the major issues that the displaced Sikhs from the Orakzai Agency are facing

1) The Sikhs displaced from the Orakzai Agency are not referred to  as IDPs as the Military hasn’t started the operations in Orakzai Agency as said to us by Herdiyal Singh from Peshawar. 

2) The 12 Sikh families who have fled from the Taliban have found shelter with the Sikhs in Peshawar and one family from Buner is also here in Peshawar.  All the 13 families have no idea as to when they will be heading back to Orakzai. Especially the students don’t know what their future will be. Many of them are looking for ways to come abroad to the western countries for higher education as they have the qualifications and degrees but don’t see a bright future

We will be working with the cooperating Pakistani Government to assist the families in their resettlement phase, which began the day they were dislocated.  The Pakistani government has been cooperative in providing the answers, at least till now. The burden at this stage on them is big enough, as despite the war, there is the rehabilitation aspect in parallel.

I reiterate, there is an urgent need for volunteer doctors who can come here and work at UNITED SIKHS Sikh Aid, Camp Islamabad.
