ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday said a national policy should be formulated on Afghan refugees as Pakistan was facing issues regarding the refugees now after hosting them for over 40 years, ARY News reported.

“Afghan refugees have been mixed in Pakistani population, while some of them have acquired illegal Pakistani identity cards and passports as well,” he said while responding to Point of Order of members in National Assembly.

To a query of Muttahida Qaumi Movement leader Shaikh Salahuddin about confiscation of licensed weapons from MQM headquarters by law enforcement agencies, he said report will be presented on this issue after discussing with the relevant organizations.

Nisar said he was unaware of confiscation of licensed weapons from MQM headquarters.

“I will take action against the interior ministry officers if they do not come despite issuing of notification,” he said.

He also said he would take all-out action regarding MQM’s missing persons. He said he had asked for judicial inquiry into MQM worker’s death under custody, but chief secretary Sindh did not want judicial inquiry into the matter.
