 Migrant Voice - MV colleague speaks to The National

On September 12, Migrant Voice colleague Salman Mirza provided comments for an article in Scottish daily newspaper The National.

The article told the story of one Afghan man called Hussein Jafari, who is calling on the government to allow his wife and baby son - both in Kabul - safe passage to Scotland.

"Even the Home Office don’t know what’s going on, everybody’s in the dark," said Salman.

"My go-to is the UK’s official country guidance. If that says everyone has to wear a blue coat to travel, then I tell everyone to wear a blue coat. Right now, there’s nothing.

"If your house is getting flooded, you want guidance straight away to turn the stopcock off and the electricity off, you don’t stand watching it flood and go ‘I’ll just wait for six weeks’."
