The International Human Rights Committee (IHRC) is seriously concerned as there is a risk of another unlawful deportation from Germany to Pakistan, scheduled to take place on May 10th 2022, as a deportation flight to Pakistan is planned, according to our information. His lawyer has submitted an immediate appeal.
According to our information Mr. Mubarak Ahmad was captured by the German authorities due to the rejection of his asylum case. He is in immediate risk to be deported during the next days, according to our information.
Mr. Mubarak Ahmad came to Germany in March 2015 and his asylum case was rejected. German authorities are planning to deport Mr. Mubarak Ahmad, who belongs to the Ahmadiyya faith, in breach of national and international laws and conventions. The name and credentials of the individual who is scheduled for deportation are as below:
• Mr. Mubarak Ahmad (DOB: 02.04.1972), who has been in Germany since March 2015. His lawyer has submitted an immediate appeal.
It is well established that members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community face persecution per se in Pakistan and all recent reports indicate that this persecution is intensifying. Returning a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to a country where his life and safety are at serious risk would be a clear breach of Germany’s obligations under international human rights law and the Convention against Torture (CAT). This includes a prohibition on sending anyone to a place where they would be at risk of such abuse. The principle of non–refoulement applies to everyone including persons who are excluded from refugee protection.
We urge that the German authorities to take immediate and swift action and ensure the safety of this individual by not deporting him back to Pakistan where he will most certainly face grave and life–threatening danger. The German authorities should grant him protection and stop deportation immediately.
DEVELOPMENTS IN PAKISTAN: Recent even more dangerous developments have taken place in Pakistan, a case entitled State vs Tahir Naqvi has criminalised Ahmadis worshipping in their homes. A recent Mosque has also been attacked a few days ago. Please find enclosed pictures below. Under such circumstances
deportations by Germany are immensely concerning and we request Germany to immediately halt the deportation of this individual.
