Ashfaq Hussain

Ashfaq is a Pakistani Refugee. He was born in 1997 and He has been stuck in Indonesia since 2013. Being a member of Shia muslim minority in Pakistan, his family and his community faces constant target attacks, and persecutions both from the Taliban and the Sunni majority government.

 

As the hope of the family, Ashfaq’s was sent to escape from Pakistan to Indonesia at the age of 16; in search of protection so that one day, him and his family can live in peace and stability. The entire family has put the faith into him, though he is stuck in limbo. But this experience has beaten him down to the bone and he is suffering mentally as a result, there’s no end in sight for this situation. Ashfaq dearly misses his his family, and would love to see them again if he can.
