“It is with utmost distress and pain that we approach your kind office to plead the case of 10 Pakistani students, who are being held by British authorities despite absence of any charges or evidence. Our kids are in prison, thousand of miles away from us having no contact with them for the last 43 days. Agonies, stresses which we are experiencing at the moment cannot be simply explained, what to speak of the mothers of these unfortunate students. UK has long history of fair play and justice and we are sure that justice coupled with compassion will also prevail in this case.”
Socialist Unity reproduces the letter to Gordon Brown from parents of three of the Pakistani students who are awaiting deportation, under the pretext that they pose a “threat to national security” but without any evidence being presented to substantiate that charge.
