Preserving habitats

How a tribal encounter led to the setting up of an innovative eco-tourism project?
Some journeys end in new beginnings. For Samar Jodha, well-known photographer, and Carin Fischer, a German national and erstwhile lawyer in Washington DC, the decision to drive down Stillwell Road from Kunming in China to Ledo in Assam in the fall of 2004, was to lead to many beginnings "" professionally and personally.

Of course, they couldn't complete the journey: they were turned away by the Burmese authorities within shouting distance of India.

But it was on the India side of the road that their real adventure lay. "A P J Baruah, the SP of the area, had made arrangements for us to visit some villages along the Stillwell road," narrates Fischer, reliving her sense of discovery.
"We went to Phaneng on the last day of the trip "" it was almost evening when we reached, to a traditional welcome from the Tai Phake tribals. Set in the very lap of nature, it was so quiet and peaceful.

It helped that the nephew of the tribal head knew English and took us through the customs and history."

Utterly charmed by their hospitality, Fischer says the poor tribespeople were very much on her mind even after she came back to Delhi. After all, there were only 1,500 Tai Phakes remaining, and their habitat too was threatened by the environment degradation caused by the open-cast coal mines nearby.

The opportunity to go back came her way the following year when she and Jodha were invited to the Dehing-Phatkai tribal festival. It's then that she floated the idea of developing eco-tourism in the area to the assembled headmen, as a public-private partnership between the government, a corporate house operating in the region and with CSR funds to spare, and the tribals themselves.

The Tai-Phake volunteered to lend their village to the project and Fischer came back to the capital to draw up plans and, most important, arrange funding.

"It's around this time that I got an assignment with Premier Oil to help build community relations in Assam. It was providence," says Fischer.

Phaneng, a small village in Assam, and its preservation has been photographer Samar Jodha's focus.

It isn’t hard to guess why veteran photographer Samar Jodha decided to make the tiny village of Phaneng in lower Assam the focus of all his energy over the last few years. It might be small in size — a few scattered bamboo houses on stilts and farmland — but its inhabitants are probably the finest example of the myriad cultures and identities that thrive in the north-eastern corner of India.

Connected to the outside world only by a rickety bamboo bridge, which is washed away every monsoon, the Tai Phake tribals who live in Phaneng have witnessed a lot, including glimpses of the World War II. The village has stood silent and its stilted bamboo architecture has changed little, retaining its identity and largely isolated from even basic necessities such as electricity. No wonder then that Jodha found Tai Phake, in common with similar indigenous people around the world, gaping to find development suddenly catching up with them.

“I stumbled upon the village in the winter of 2004, while driving along the historic Stilwell road from Southwest China into India’s cloistered north-east, for a documentary project,” recalls Jodha.

Primarily specialising in fashion and automobile photography, Jodha often takes on projects that deal with human issues. The project “Ageless Mind and Spirit” he says, influenced him a lot as he spent eight years simply documenting the faces and stories of India’s elderly people.

At Phaneng, along with his American-German partner, Carin Fischer, he formed “Partnership for responsible development” to facilitate a sustainable tourism project at Phaneng. “We have built facilities to accommodate paying tourists and resources have been poured into reviving the monastery for Tai Phake tribals who practice Buddhism.


ENVIRONMENT: Smugglers Axing Kashmir Forests
By Athar Parvaiz

SRINAGAR, Jan 26 2011 (IPS) - During the summer of 2010 Kashmir saw one of the worst face-offs between pro-freedom Kashmiri youth and law enforcement agencies. Smugglers used the unrest surrounding these outbreaks to conceal their steady ramping up of the black market timber trade, at times with complicity of authorities.

“We are helpless, we lack both infrastructure and manpower,” says Kashmir’s Chief Conservator of Forests Manzoor Ahmad. “Each forest guard has to guard 10 square kilometres of forest without the help of any vehicle.”
Manzoor says that his department has started measures to curb smuggling. “We have liberalised the import of timber from outside Kashmir to ease pressure on local sources of timber. We don’t charge any tax for the imported timber upon its entry in Kashmir and allow its transportation within Kashmir without any transit documents,” he told IPS.

But private timber depot owners say that forest officials ask for bribes even for the transportation of imported timber. “They charge 25 rupees per cubic feet of timber,” said Ghulam Ahmad, a private depot owner in Srinagar.

One of the many hotbeds for timber-smugglers is the rugged terrain of Rafiabad in north Kashmir where smuggling of timber is made possible through the use of ponies. Felling of trees is so widespread here that the practice has started triggering landslides.

“Local smugglers, active in the upper belt, are exploited by the timber contractors who make them cut trees for a pittance while they themselves make huge money out of it,” says social activist Ashraf Khan, a local teacher.

“We don’t have any other means of income. We simply feed on the forest,” a timber smuggler who ferries the timber on his pony, told IPS on condition of anonymity. “I know it is not a respectable job, but when I look around I don’t find anything which can fetch me an income.”
Smugglers ignore the risks involved in operating in the forests of a conflict zone where they could be mistaken as militants by the Indian army. In 2005, Farooq Khan was killed, and last year Gull Kalis was killed in army ambushes in the region.

But in many cases timber smugglers enjoy the blessing of security forces and make 90 to 100 dollars a night thanks to agreements between politicians and head timber smugglers.

The construction boom and the lack of any initiative by the government to save forests have fuelled the illegal sale of forest wood in this territory which is in dispute between India and Pakistan.

The large-scale construction is not only feeding on forest wealth, but has also consumed thousands of hectares of agricultural land. According to official estimates, more than 9,000 hectares of agricultural land in Kashmir have been converted into residential and commercial areas over the past few years.

“The concept of horizontal expansion is proving quite disastrous as it, unlike the vertical expansion, consumes additional space and additional construction material including timber,” Nissar Ahmad, central forest conservator in Kashmir, told IPS. Nissar denied that corruption among forest officials was one of the reasons for timber smuggling.

Carin Fisher, a German citizen who has now applied for Indian citizenship, came to Kashmir a few years ago to start a project called “Rural Tourism” sponsored by the Indian tourism ministry, but she has decided to morph the project into a campaign for saving forests.

“To start with I chose Rafiabad area in north Kashmir for implementing my project. But when I went there, I was shocked to see the incredible destruction of forests,” Fisher told IPS.

“Then I thought I should do something to motivate the timber smugglers to give up this habit of axing the trees. So I named my project “Trekking for Trees” and managed to convince 50 smugglers to work as tourist guides and identified 20 houses for the tourists to stay,” said Fisher.

“In the meanwhile, we also built a trekking centre for giving tourist-guide training to the timber smugglers,” she said. “But we had to suspend the whole operation because I was not allowed to implement my project by a nexus of the vested interests.”

Fisher says that she is organising a similar project in Khag-Budgam and hopes to start it in April or May of 2011. “You can’t stop timber-smuggling by booking the smugglers under harsh laws. You have to go after the kingpins and at the same time you have to give community-based livelihoods to the poor people who actually do the axe-work,” Fisher told IPS.




Varmul to be JK's first 'eco-tourism spot'
March 14, 2015, 5:05 AM

UPDATED: March 14, 2015, 5:05 AM

Srinagar, July 30: When Carin Fisher, a German, married to famous Indian photographer Samar Jodha and participated in Patkai festival of Singlo community in Phaneng Assam three years ago, she was impressed by hospitality of the tribal people and beauty of the place.
With an urge to do something for the economically backward area, she decided to launch an eco-tourism project there. Within two years, Phaneng became one of the favourite tourist destinations in India for foreigners.
Carin wants to undertake a similar project for 10 villages of Varmul district of north Kashmir.
“During my visit to Varmul, I found topography of its villages similar to Phaneng. They have a lot of potential for eco-tourism and it will help in upliftment of the villagers and promotion of tourism,” Carin, a noted environmentalist and eco-tourism consultant who’s presently in the Valley told Greater Kashmir on Monday. Phaneng, which is cocooned amidst forests, Carin said, was developed as a joint venture between a private multi-national company, villagers, and the Assam Forest Department. The company provided funding, training, and supervision, the community donated land and provided labour, and the Forest Department gave training and solar lamps, and Carin coordinated the activities of the three partners, she said.
She said, “You would be surprised to know that it did take us only Rs 5.43 lakh for implementation of the project, which included building materials, furniture and western-style toilets. In the first year, Phaneng has earned Rs 16 lakh from tourists. Now a large number of tours and foreign tour operators are making a beeline there.”
Carin says she wants to develop the Varmul villages as eco-tourism sites due to its tremendous potential. The villages have pristine environment which definitely needs to be preserved, she said. Eco-tourism, besides facilitating environmental conservation, demands active participation of locals. It will be a source of livelihood for villagers and promote their culture too.
Carin’s eco-tourism project includes construction of traditional huts, toilets, emergency healthcare facility, small traditional community stage or center for cultural event, adequate facilities for scientific disposal of garbage, solar panels for houses for hot water, and reading lights and clean water supply.
“There would be no concrete construction and huts will be made of natural products like wood and grass,” she said. “The villagers have agreed to provide their land and government logistical support. The primary objective is rural development through community based eco- tourism initiatives. Thus, it is much more of an environmentally friendly poverty alleviation measure than a mass-market package deal.”
“Profits from the project will go to locals,” she said. However, Carin maintains that she will be only facilitating implementation of the project.
She has devised a comprehensive schedule for stay of tourist for summers as well as winter in the village. “I want tourists to stay in the village for round the year. This will help in upliftment of the villagers as well as maintain tourist flow. The villages have so much to offer to tourists like apple orchards, fishing, trekking and handicrafts,” she said.
Showing a map, she said there are several villages on the way like Brandub, Khamoh, Bramar, Lariangan, Kutru, Ladu, and Ladoora. Each of these villages, she said, would benefit by offering small traditional accommodations and or meals. “The tourists will have to pay the locals adequately for their services like facilitating trekking or acting as guides. We want the locals to have friendly relationship with tourist rather than merely providing services,” she said.
“The concept of tourism is changing now. Tourists want to see new places which are close to nature and away from hustle and bustle of city. I see a bright future for Varmul,” Carin said in a confident tone.
She says the movement of tourists in Phaneng curbed felling of trees and timber smuggling. “It was sad to see massive deforestation in Varmul. We will make it mandatory for tourists to plant at least one tree in the villages to compensate the loss,” she said.
Minister for Tourism, Muhammad Dilawar Mir acknowledged the introduction of eco-tourism in Varmul. “Carin has done a lot of work in Assam on eco-tourism and we would provide her or any other person or NGO total support to launch similar projects in the Valley,” Mir told Greater Kashmir.
“Eco-tourism is a new concept to us and we have to adapt it to attract more tourists. We are planning to develop unexplored tourist places in rural area as eco-tourism destinations,” he said.

Impressive digging as always Anmol ji!

I wish we could see the link in that last tweet and where it leads. Does it point to the views of Mr. Samar Singh Jodha (by now the EX husband of Carin Fisher) on his beloved former wife? Could be some interesting stuff there.

Where do these pakis/khalis find these obscure goras to do their bidding ? I don't know who is taking who for a ride here but i have a distinct feeling it is the goras who are laughing all the way to the bank ! Michael Kugelman, Peter Friedrich and now Carin Fischer. There are few more vocal anti-India goras on twitter whose name escapes me but their daily verbal vomit is undeniably indigestion of ISI propaganda . Atleast in the past they were hiring some "scholarly" figures like Christine Fair, Stephen Cohen, Teresita Schaffer etc. but now hopelessly broke they are left to approach any random white person with passing interest on India and ask them if they are willing to talk about Kashmir and Hindoo fascism on social media !

Both nations, he said, have several commonalities, which strengthen the chances of enhanced cooperation, especially in trade and defence.

“Both are victims of terrorism and have dealt with it effectively, if not fully overcome,” he said, referring to Sri Lanka’s 26-year civil war, as well as Pakistan’s war against militancy following the United States invasion of neighbouring Afghanistan in 2002.

Disappointing to see someone like C Raja Mohan clinging to yesteryear thought process when it comes to Pakistan !

Delhi has nothing to lose by exploring the seriousness of the Pak army chief
We certainly don’t know if the General is being tactical or strategic. Delhi will find that out only by negotiating seriously with the Pakistan army. Yet another failure with Rawalpindi will not surprise Delhi.

The rest of the article seems like a muddled brain dump. I really fail to see what point he is making :roll:

Why is it a revelation that Gen Bajwa is the one setting policy? Since when did Nasha Khan's opinion start mattering in Pak? After causing 60,000+ deaths why are we even giving any air to their statements of “dignified :rotfl: and peaceful settlement” ?!

“address each other’s core issues” : For Pak it is to get the rest of Kashmir. Since they already have PoK and GB, this means India dropping its claim on PoK G&B and giving away Kashmir in its control. Obviously this is impossible and therefore can no way be addressed. For India its Pak to stop cross border terrorism and any other covert intervention inimical to India's interests. This is definitely possible and must be addressed.

Whatever tripod Mushy and ABV were setting up in 2004 is nearly 2 decades old history. NaMo will NEVER agree to any “shared sovereignty” in Kashmir. Nasha Khan's internal spin on J&K is his problem. Even if Art 370 wasn't abrogated, there would be some older anti-India spin being peddled, because that what is fundamentally holding Pak together.

Pak attempts to internationalise Kashmir issue in the recent past have failed Not because Russia and the West had a sudden change of heart but because NaMo & S Jaishankar have upped the ante and went on a leader to leader and diplomatic offensive like never before done by India.

He says
"Pakistan’s use of jihadi groups to destabilise Kashmir seemed effective in inflicting pain on India in the past. But international tolerance for such a strategy by Pakistan has declined".
Actually its India's tolerance that has declined, it has actually disappeared which Raja Mohan doesn't seem to have noticed. Pak's desperation is a result of that.

Pak's nuclear buff was called in Kargil, Op Parakram times itself. Surgical strikes and Balakot were carefully calibrated to shrink the envelope of the bluff further. Nasha Khan's rabid speeches at the UN reflect the shock of Pak establishment and their inability to come to terms with the new nooknood reality.

Raja Mohan analysis on Pak changing the status of PoK and G&B is again erroneous. They will not do it, since that would be tantamount to letting go of UN Resolution 46 which they keep chanting (except of course the first point of that resolution) and unravel their whole rhetoric. Why worry about it or even give credence? India's position should be based on what RM Rajnath Singh stated in the parliament. "ALL of J&K as acceded to India in 1947 is an integral part of India". That Pak calls the territory its illegally occupying, a province or subah or whatever is immaterial. India's claim and resolve to take them back remain unchanged.

We certainly don’t know if the General is being tactical or strategic. Delhi will find that out only by negotiating seriously with the Pakistan army.

Bajwa is being neither. He is being survivalist, clutching at straws since the economic embargo and FATF have pushed Pak financially to the brink.

A confident Delhi, with its eyes wide open, should travel hopefully with Bajwa.

Bollocks !! Bajwa is tottering. France refusing to service Mirages and Subs, US cutting off aid, Baloch & NWFP unrest, Iran & Afghanistan putting pressure on the Durand line, and China using it like a contraceptive device have made Pak military hollow from the inside.

Jeez ! I didn't realise the candles were up the backsides of Indian analysts so much. Brace for more aman ki asha hogwash in the coming weeks folks.

Now the joint DGMO statement is beginning to make sense.

World powers and busybodies would have pushed India to talk to Pakistan. India would have said "talk to whom? IK doesn't call the shots". They would have replied "speak to the Paki army". Now expecting PM or EAM to talk to Pakfauj is ridiculous and this idea would have been summarily dismissed. However as a concession someone might have said "only our military can talk to the pakfauj" and that went from idea to reality. And given the interests and reach of parties pushing us to talk, pakfauj had to put up some kind of conciliatory statement. The FATF/economy being in toilet/bad relations with benefactors/emigrants being sent home helped the generals to backpedal on their usual belligerence.

But we all know this is going to be a short-lived peace because a scorpion, by nature, bites. ABV formula will never apply. 370 is gone, J&K has changed and fully integrated into the republic. The only good border is a hard border, as we are also concluding on the China side.

2nd class Firangi player rips PSL (pakistani) H&D to shreds.

Out-of-reckoning England opening batsman Alex Hales, who is plying his trade for Islamabad United in the ongoing PSL wasn't quite happy with the food he got as breakfast. Sharing the image of the meal he got, Hales wrote, "Toast, omellete and baked beans."

However, the image showed pieces of bread, an unopened packet and two eggs. Hales was certainly not expecting the eggs instead of an omelette and pointed out the same mistake. Even the quality of the given eggs was not up to the mark as one of the eggs was rotten from one of the sides.

https://tribune.com.pk/story/2287563/govt-prefers-free-of-cost-covid-vaccine-pac-told
Govt prefers free-of-cost Covid vaccine, PAC told


Actual headline: "Govt has no option but to prefer free of cost Covid vaccine"

During a PAC meeting, headed by its Chairman Rana Tanveer Hussain, the officials of the Ministry of National Health Services and the National Institute of Health (NIH) said that Pakistan would get a total of 16 million free doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine, which is being manufactured in India, through Gavi for inoculating 45 million people against the yearly target of 70 million.


I hope Pakistan rejects Indian vaccine to stand in solidarity with oppressed Kashmiris.

I also hope Indian propaganda apparatus makes max use of this opportunity.

Recall this report from January when Quereshi announced, as if it was a big victory, that China was gifting 500K free doses of Sinopharm vaccine.

https://www.dawn.com/news/1602757

"Pakistan has a huge population [...] in order to fulfil its needs, we also discussed whether we can move forward together for this (CanSino) vaccine's production and manufacturing in Pakistan after the completion of the new trials," he said, adding that his Chinese counterpart had agreed to the proposal.


What happened to the the joint manufacturing proposal to which China agreed? :mrgreen:

In January, India announced largest vaccination drive in the world using Indian developed/manufactured vaccines which caused yuuuge H&D loss to Pakistan so Qureshi begged Chinese for some free vaccines and declared victory.

Apparently Im The Dim's fortunes are dimming.

His party has lost control of the senate -- happened because his own people backstabbed him and voted for the opposition.

Although his Tehreek-e-Insaf party and its allies control 178 seats, Finance Minister Abdul Hafeez Shaikh only won 164 votes in the lower house on Wednesday in the secret Senate election.


Guess who won that seat? Our very own Groper Gilani :mrgreen:

Votes for senate candidates are secret. Rumor has it both parties, Im the dim as well as Zardari asked people for cell phone pictures of who they voted for. If they voted for PPP candidates, they got tickets to contest under Badmash's party in next elections.

Im the dim has called a vote of confidence, and Khakis apparently are in full force to round up people to vote for him. In a month or two it will be clear who the TFTAs back.


https://www.dw.com/en/pakistan-senate-e ... a-56772461

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party failed to win a majority in the 100-member Senate, despite having a numerical advantage in the lower house.

Members of the National Assembly in the capital, Islamabad, and four provincial assemblies vote for the Senate members. Upper house lawmakers are elected for six years, however, all of them are not elected at the same time.


If he has majority in the lower house and the lower house votes for upper house, how did he lose hainji? This is a reverse swing!! :mrgreen:


"Imran Khan and his party have taken a unanimous decision to take a vote of confidence from Parliament to confirm he still has a majority (in lower house)," Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told media.

Constitutional experts say the reason behind holding a vote of confidence for the premier is to determine which party members switched allegiances in the Senate elections, as, unlike the upper house election, National Assembly lawmakers cast their votes through an open ballot.

"Those who revolted against the PTI could be disqualified under election laws," Osama Malik, an Islamabad-based legal expert, told DW.


What happens if someone's car breaks down enroute to voting? 8)


To ensure Khan retains the support of his bloc of lawmakers, Pakistan’s spy agency has been asked to monitor their movements and ensure they vote in parliament on Saturday, according to officials with knowledge of the situation. They asked not to be identified speaking to the media.


How can ISI look for Zawahiri and Haqqani when they are busy looking for votes hain ji? :mrgreen:

PSL postponed with immediate effect after emergence of 7 Covid-19 cases
Imran Siddique | Abdul Ghaffar Published March 4, 2021

The Pakistan Cricket Board announced on Thursday that the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 6 has been delayed "with immediate effect" after seven people participating in the tournament tested positive for Covid-19.
The PCB said the decision had been taken out of consideration for the health and wellbeing of all participants in the tournament.
"Following a meeting with the team owners and considering the health and wellbeing of all participants is paramount, the Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to postpone the HBL Pakistan Super League 6 with immediate effect. The decision was made after seven cases were reported in the competition, which had started on 20 February," the cricket body said in a press release.

Most of these so called experts are UPA appointees and hence repeat HMV aka Khan's voice.

while india maintained JK was indian territory and hence moving towards making it a state without art370
TSP always stated it to be "independent" and changing that stance now will be a good way to pin it down further.

damned if they do, damned if they dont.

Pakistan to receive 45 million ‘Made In India’ vaccine under GAVI alliance
Islamabad will be getting 45 million doses of ‘Indian-made’ vaccine under the United GAVI alliance, Federal Secretary National Health Services, Regulation and Coordination Aamir Ashraf Khawaja on Thursday informed the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Pakistan.
Geeta Mohan, New Delhi, March 10, 2021

Islamabad will be getting 45 million doses of ‘Indian-made’ vaccine under the United GAVI alliance, Federal Secretary National Health Services, Regulation and Coordination Aamir Ashraf Khawaja on Thursday informed the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Pakistan.
GAVI, the vaccine alliance, helps vaccinate almost half the world’s children against deadly and debilitating infectious diseases. It has been providing assistance to Pakistan all through the pandemic as well. It had signed an agreement with Pakistan to provide COVID-19 vaccine in September 2020.
Secretary Khawaja said that a total of 45 million doses of vaccine would be received under an agreement with GAVI and out of those, total 16 million would be received till June this year. According to Pakistani media reports, while briefing the committee when Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed was questioned about where the vaccine was coming from, the health secretary informed that Pakistan would receive vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India.

It is a bummer that the quota for Porkistan increased from 17 million doses to 45 million doses.

45 million doses means that 2.2 Crores of the Paki Parasites would be getting the benefit of the Indian vaccine. This comes to 10% of the official census figure.

Paki's know only Indian vaccine is trustworthy and the other options are either chinese make or are very expensive. While there will be photo ops of aam Abdul's and Ayesha's getting these shots, the Indian vaccine will be mostly for Defence forces/Politicians/Bureaucrats/Feudal landlords/ Influential businessmen and the remaining would be black marketed with proceeds cornered by the Army/ISI.

Porkis are paying upto Rs 20,000 for any good vaccine in the open market

I hope the pakis never find out that the Indian vaccine which will be specially manufactured under Raa's watchful eyes, and once administered to the pakis, has a nano-micro-molecular-fifth generation-sized chip that, once added to the paki bloodstream, upon reaching their...er..vitals, will make them ...er..."unproductive". This chip will also make the recipient shout out Modi's name in praise.

this accursed nation is capable of such acts. and we are gifting them vaccines. disgraceful

the abduction of 13 years girl named Kaveeta from Tangwani Sindh & forcefully converted through Miyan Mithoo. This girl is innocent & hardly has understanding about religion.
extract
sUKKUR: A gang of armed men barged into a Hindu family’s house in Jarwar locality in Tangwani town late on Tuesday night and kidnapped a teenage girl at gunpoint.

Police arrived in the locality after being informed of the incident, collected information from Takhat Odh’s family and lodged a report against as yet unknown suspects for kidnapping Takhat’s daughter Kaweeta.

Later, police raided houses of Behalkani community in the locality over suspicions they might have kidnapped the girl but neither the girl nor the kidnappers were found there and police had to return empty handed.

How minorities in Pakistan continue to suffer from forced conversions, marriages

In the last 26 days, three minor girls have been abducted and converted into Islam in the country.
The name of these girls are: Arti Meghwar, Reena Meghwar and Kavita Bai.

The families of these girls are fighting for justice, but the Pakistani judiciary couldn't be bothered less.
Let us begin with the story of Kavita, a 13-year-old who was kidnapped on March 8 from her home.

Also read | Protests grow in Pakistan over abduction, forced conversion of Catholic teen

Kavita's father said that five men dragged his daughter from their home and fled.

She was then brought before a cleric who held a public conversion ceremony.

Some old men gathered around her and formed a circle and read some Islamic prayers.The images are disturbing, to say the least.

Pakistan authorities said that the girl claims to be over 18-years-old and has converted of her own free will.

This is an excuse that we hear over and over and over again.

Every time a minor girl is converted, Pakistan says she did so willfully.

Migrants Stranded in Bosnia-Herzegovina "Animals Have It Better Than Us"
With the EU having long since blocked off the Balkan Route, more and more migrants have become stranded in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Some have little choice but to camp out in the forest, where they are exposed to freezing cold and heavy snow.
By Maximilian Popp and Andy Spyra (Photos), in Bihać, 21.01.2021

Nasim Hussein has tried to enter the European Union 13 times. Each time, he says, he has been stopped by Croatian security forces, beaten and then dragged back across the border to Bosnia-Herzegovina. Currently, he is living in a forest near the border and wondering how he will survive the winter.
The son of a farmer from near Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, the 21-year-old and a dozen other migrants have built a tent camp using branches and plastic tarps to shelter themselves from the rain and snow. They have covered the muddy ground with wooden palettes that they found in the garbage in Bihać, the city not far away.
No Water and No Electricity
The men are crouched around a fire. Despite the below freezing temperatures, most are only wearing a sweater and some have nothing but sandals on their feet. They are shivering and Hussein rubs his hands together. His eyes are red. He didn't sleep, he says, out of fear that he would freeze to death in his thin sleeping bag. Still, he went down to the river in the morning to wash himself. In their improvised camp, they have no water and no electricity. Every now and then, aid groups drop off some food, but often, the migrants have only dry bread to eat for days on end. "We are starving. We are freezing," says Hussein. "Animals have it better than us."
A slight, unshaven man with short hair, Hussein says he left Pakistan after a neighbor threatened to kill him. He made his way through Turkey and Greece, all the way to Bosnia-Herzegovina – where he has now been stuck for over a year, like so many other asylum-seekers.
Early on in the EU refugee crisis, in 2015, refugees were able to travel via Serbia and Hungary into central and northern Europe. But ever since the EU closed down the so-called Balkan Route, more and more people have found themselves stranded in Bosnia-Herzegovina, unable to cross the border into Croatia – and blocked from continuing onward to countries further north, like Germany or Sweden.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) estimates that almost 10,000 migrants are currently stuck in Bosnia-Herzegovina, with just a fraction of them having found a spot in one of the country's six official camps. Many people sleep in the ruins of factories or in abandoned houses.

There are literally thousands of Paki jehadi parasites in Turkey and other staging locations trying to get into the EU zone. They make multiple attempts and are unfazed by any challenge and are bent on getting either into UK, Italy or Germany.

Check out the You tube videos with key word Dunky or Dunkey. These porkis pay thousands of dollars to middlemen, travel to Iran and then try to get on foot to Turkey. Many die or simply vanish after action by Iranian/Turkish and other security forces.

The number of people trying and getting into Europe is simply mid-boggling. Europe is truly done and dusted.

USA is comparatively safe due to the pond in between or else these cretins would been in the country in large numbers. They still try to get in through Mexico but those numbers are very limited.

Canada is a goner too. Due to the high infestation by Pakis in Canada, US would do well to revoke Visa free entry into the country to all Canadians and make visa compulsory at least for all naturalized Canadians. They have already revoked the visa free entry for Canadian Permanent Resident card holders.

Vipsji,
just as individuals have karma to work out, nations too have karma. Pakistanis coming to Europe is a part of that karma. When I was in Berlin back in the 80s, 80,000 Pakistanis had claimed political asylum. Not a single case was successful. But each case took about two years to adjudicate, while the applicant was able to work and send home money. That right was taken away and the process was sped up. Still they came numbering in thousands. They had to be accommodated, fed and often medically treated. They fell under the social net meant for the citizens. The entire process cost billions for the tax payer.
