>Couple faced humiliation for Fake anti MQM propaganda.

June 1, 2011


In Pakistan there is a fashion of blaming MQM for everything, people who never visited Karachi blame MQM for every crime that occurred in Karachi without proofs because of their ethnic and political bias, but there are people who blamed MQM for their own vested interests.
In Pakistan the people do anti MQM propaganda due to ethnic and political hate and bias are out of reach of the law, but in countries like Canada such people face humiliation when they lied against MQM and do fake propaganda against MQM.
Such happened with Sabir Muhammad Sheikh and his wife who lied against MQM. What happen with them and how they paid heavily for doing Anti MQM Propaganda is a lesson for all the so called Anti MQM people who lied in the name of MQM and blamed MQM for everything without proofs.

Here is What happened with a couple who was lying against MQM.

High price to pay for lying on Canadian immigration forms

This story on CTV Montreal is a good example of what happens when foreign nationals lie in an immigration application to Canada. Sabir Mohammad Sheikh and Seema Sheikh, a married couple from Pakistan, were deported from Canada in the summer of 2009 because of significant lies on their immigration applications to Canada.

On December 21, 2000, the Sheikhs entered Canada from the US and claimed refugee protection. In their application for protection, they claimed to have been persecuted in Pakistan for at least seven years by the Mutatahida Qaumi Movement, a Pakistani political party. 

Mr. Sheikh stated that MQM gangsters fired at his family, harassed them, burned down his store, uttered death threats against him and killed his father and nephew. To escape the violence and persecution, the family escaped to Dubai where they purchased fake British passports and travelled to the United States. 

On December 21, 2001, based on the statements from the Sheikh family, Citizenship and Immigration Canada recognized them as Convention refugees in need of protection and allowed them to remain in Canada.
Sometime in early 2004, Citizenship and Immigration Canada learned that most of the statements made by the Sheiks for refugee protection were fabricated. The government applied to vacate the decision recognizing them as Convention refugees.

At a hearing in June 2007, Mr. Sheikh admitted that he and his wife had lied on their application forms. Mr. Sheikh was living and working in Dubai, not Pakistan, from 1978 to 2000 and his wife was with him in Dubai from 1984 onwards. He said that although it was not true that he was shot at by MQM gangsters, he was nonetheless persecuted by them on the occasional summer trip he made to Pakistan. 

On September 4, 2007, an officer of the Immigration and Refugee Board (Refugee Division) allowed the government’s application and the refugee claim was rejected. The officer concluded that the Sheikhs misrepresented material facts in their applications concerning their persecution in Pakistan and obtained refugee status based on those misrepresentations. She also found that, given the extent of the misrepresentations, there was no remaining credible evidence to conclude that the Sheikhs had ever been persecuted.

The Sheikhs were deported to the United States but left their children, including a 5-year-old daughter, in Canada. Faced with serious lies on an immigration application, the federal government has no choice but to deport foreign nationals like the Sheikhs, otherwise the integrity of the refugee system is at risk.
