Essan Qadami Brought a story of a young Hazara Asylum seeker, who come to Australia by boat and what he have been through, in his Adjournment Debate.
In an after dinner speech, in YMCA camp, Wahid Omid Talked about asylum seekers, and why they leave the country for a safe place, to young MPs:” all Hazara asylum seekers who comes to Australia and seek protection here are prosecuted by Taliban and other terrorist and extremist groups.”
He also explained the reason why people don’t wait in Indonesia with other refugees and stay on the queue:” the queue is imaginary and does not exist, people have been waiting for up to 10 years in Indonesia to be settled in 3th country and the applications in UNHCR office is processed randomly not by turn.”
This after dinner speech made a big change in the way people were thinking about Asylum seekers and on the next Adjournment debate many of the young MPs debated about Welcoming Asylum Seekers in Society.
