MELBOURNE: Who authorized Australia? Who made world worst immigration laws? Who gave them permission to dishonor migrants? Who will answer the questions regarding severe crimes against refugees? Who will take strict action against Aussie authorities? Who sponsors immigration bureaucrats? Who allows them to make inhuman policies? How they decide travelers’ cases according to their own will? Who they are and where they live???
These were some questions asked directly to the authorities of Australia through Messenger by dozens of people live in Karachi’s Landhi area known as Karachiites globally in a very politely, lightly and civilly manners but warned that if the concerned Australian authorities are failed to “just answers which asked” within 72 hours after flashing the news, they would be treated that they have nothing in their support to present not only in any court of law across the world but they are also habitual criminals and doing these practices since a long deliberately, intentionally and malafidely and all involved culprits would be delighted as committed offenders and they would have to face “the Landhi International Tribunal/ LIT (which has already been established in Landhi) as alike they run in their own country (for migrants, refugees and foreigners) and the said Tribunal will trial against them as per their own procedure.
Taking to Messenger one of Karachiites namely Dr Salman Ahmed Khan first verified regarding the news of Leo Yang, a 10 months old baby who has Down Syndrome and Leukaemia diseases while her mother who lives in Australia since 2013 and will be deported unless the Home Affairs Minister intervenes then Dr Khan informed Messenger “Plan to take strict action against Aussie authorities has finalized”, all concerned immigration establishments would be summoned after Eid holidays for their (in person) appearance before LIT including Home Affairs Minister and Case Officer (s).
Replying to a question Dr Khan explained that the LIT never takes any action against anyone in Pakistan as well as across the world until its own satisfaction and investigation are completed and when the court confirms that there is any uncivilized or inhuman or unethical act against any person of the world done by any or many ‘official (s), the LIT takes direct suo-moto notice of the incident and summons defendant (s) and if any or many perpetrators either not present before Tribunal or refuse the notice, the Tribunal usually orders its bailiff to serve the notices to the defendant (s) and if they even refuse, the court ultimately arrest them through its volunteers and in past dozens of culprits have been arrested across the world especially America, England, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Belgium etc., except because of low volume of culprits there is no arrest from Australia yet while neither the number of migrations to Australia nor the population of Australia is considerable even ‘the entire Australia herself nothing, as no one knows, what is Australia, where it is situated, who live there and what is its recognition, that’s why only there are approximately 600,000 Muslims out of over 2 billion could adjust there during the last 200 years while only 55 to 60ks Pakistani out of 222 million could migrate in Australia since 1947 which is not only a slap in the face of Australia but also exposed a so-called developed, civilized and modern country of the world ‘unknown as Australia’ while the genuine civilized, developed and modern countries like Canada and Germany have awarded the migration which is double with the total population of Australia during a period of only last ten years with human dignity, respect and warm welcome, he briefed.
Nusrat Mehjabeen and Dr Firdaus have the same feeling and reservations against Australian establishment while another Karachiite said, the game is over and the countdown has started hence, thirteen other Karachiites expected that the summons of LIT would be enough for Australia.
The Karachiites have severe reservations against Australian authorities, they say that neither they know about Australia nor want to know because their exposure, their status, their standard and their goodwill are more much with Australia that’s why they never considered, count and measured Australia and because of this reality only 1,900 Karachiites migrated Australia during last 72 years, they further explained that over 40 million Karachiites recognize as still ‘Muhajirs’ (migrants) after 72 years, they have their own recognition, they are not Punjabis, Balochis, Sindhis or Pakhtoons, they made an independent state for them on 14th August 1947 known as Pakistan but rest of them, over 180 million non-Muhajirs (mentioned above) never accept them and tried to deport them back to India or anywhere else, they brutally tortured them, genocide them, killed them and kept continue injustice against them.
Muhajirs are the world most decent, educated, tolerated and skilled nation while it is proven that they are inherently superb with all nations of the world, people concluded.
Anyhow, in continuation a horrific story flashed by ABC News on 4th June 2019, Messenger has to listen, face and visage much more as it tolerated in past.
According to the ABC News, Leo Yang is 10 months old and has Down syndrome and leukaemia. In a matter of weeks, his Chinese mother — the only family he has — will be deported, unless Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton intervenes.
“I love Leo, I want to stay with him,” said Leo’s mother Sarah Yang*.
“I haven’t put all my hopes on [intervention] because I don’t want to feel too disappointed in the end if I find out things don’t work well.”
Life has taught Ms Yang to not get her hopes up.
Ten months ago she was in what she thought was a loving, long-term relationship with an Australian man, Leo’s father.
She had been living in Australia on a student visa since arriving from China in 2013 and the couple were preparing to have their first child together.
‘He’s my angel’
An hour or so after Leo was born, he was diagnosed with Down syndrome.
The father stuck around long enough to sign the birth certificate — ensuring Leo’s status as an Australian citizen — but promptly disappeared from their lives.
There were more blows to come.
In January, when Leo was six months old, Ms Yang took him to hospital after noticing small red spots on his arm.
He has been in hospital ever since, as he continues to get treatment for acute myeloid leukaemia.
He now faces the prospect of losing his mum.
“I was told by some midwives that babies with Down syndrome are like angels from God,” Ms Yang said.
Ms Yang applied for a carer’s visa that would allow her to stay and look after Leo, but this has been rejected.
Under Australia’s immigration laws, a 10-month-old child with Down syndrome and leukaemia does not meet the minimum threshold of needing a carer.
‘Dreadful’ that boy will be denied his mother
The case has passed through the Home Affairs Department, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and a final appeal now rests with the Minister.
If the decision is not overturned, Ms Yang will be deported and Leo will almost certainly end up in foster care.
Adoption rates in Australia are low and children with special needs are even less likely to be taken in.
“To consider that this child might be denied access to his mother when he’s got no-one else to support him is just dreadful,” said Dr Jan Gothard, a health and disability specialist with Estrin Saul Lawyers, which has taken Ms Yang’s case on a pro-bono basis.
Dr Gothard said this “devastating outcome” was inevitable given the restrictive nature of the current regulations to determine eligibility for a carer’s visa.
“That matrix doesn’t take into account social circumstances, it’s just a set of numbers, a table to be filled in and if somebody doesn’t meet that then they are rejected.”
She said there was still ample scope for Mr Dutton to intervene.
“The primary plank of welfare policy relating to the wellbeing of children is to try and preserve the family unit,” she said.
“In this family’s circumstances, denying Sarah a permanent visa to stay in Australia and care for her son, who is a vulnerable child in obvious need of care and protection, is a violation of this first principle.”
Down Syndrome Australia has thrown its support behind Ms Yang’s case.
“Any child at that age needs a significant amount of care … certainly a child who has Down syndrome and leukaemia needs a lot of care and a lot of support,” said the organisation’s chief executive, Ellen Skladzien.
“I think it would be a very reasonable thing to provide her with a carer visa.”
Staying in Australia a better outcome
In a letter to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, one of Leo’s doctors warned that “… the removal of a child’s primary attachment figure impairs their ability to form bonds, regulate emotions and manage stress later in life”.
The letter noted that Leo’s mother “… has been at his bedside and is his primary, in fact, only caregiver. [He] seeks comfort and reassurance from [her] and seeks her return [when] she leaves his side.”
According to Dr Gothard, that will likely have knock-on effects in terms of the amount of specialist therapy he receives.
“Early intervention starts with children with Down syndrome basically from day one — physio, speech therapy — Leo has missed out on all of that because he’s got leukaemia,” Dr Gothard said.
“If he goes into a foster home, he’s very unlikely to get the early intervention that he really needs.”
And then there is the cost.
“Supporting the mum to stay in Australia would actually be a lower cost to the system than the child ending up in foster care and needing to be in out-of-home care for the rest of his life,” Ms Skladzien said.
Another option would be for Leo to apply for Chinese citizenship [he has no automatic right to live in China] and return home with his mum, but no-one involved in his care believes that is a good option.
“There is a lot more stigma associated with intellectual disability and Down syndrome in China,” Ms Skladzien said.
“Staying in Australia is definitely going to lead to better outcomes for him.”
A Home Affairs spokesperson says the Minister has the power to intervene if he thinks it is in the public interest, but the department does not comment on individual cases.
‘I want to see him grow up’
While Ms Yang awaits an outcome, her life is a precarious balance between keeping the anguish of her past at bay, while not being paralysed by her uncertain future.
“[I] live day-by-day and try to enjoy every moment with Leo first,” she said.
“I try not to have too many bad thoughts about life or about people because I want Leo to be able to enjoy happy moments with me … if I kept thinking about whether it’s fair or whether it’s just then I would be drowning in those thoughts non stop.”
She is often overwhelmed — and in her darkest moments, she says it is her son that supports her.
“He’s just my son. He’s just my sunshine, so he can help me stay away from the darkness,” she said.
“Sometimes if I feel very upset and depressed and maybe bitter, I will try to hold his little hand, or hold his little feet, I will kiss him and cuddle him to try to get comfort and some warmth from him because he’s such an angel.”
Sometimes she lets herself imagine, for a fleeting moment, what their future together might be like.
“I want to be able to see him grow up and maybe make many friends in his life. I want to maybe cook with him together and maybe go out for a walk,” she said.
“I don’t want to be too greedy.”
Conclusively, commenting on the news/story flashed by ABC News, hundreds of Karachiites were very angry and warned that if the Australia and the countries authorities including Liberal along with its coalition parties as well as pay-rolled will not change their mindsets and policies they will definitely have to face ultimate reaction so, it’s the last chance for them to change their attitude and behavior.
They also intimate that because of their worst immigration policies and discriminatory and inhuman manner with migrants, Australia is becoming Syria and Afghanistan and those days are not for away then the country will become more worst than Syria and Afghanistan, Karachiites firmed.
