Withholding of Removal Approved Based on Fear of Rogue Militants in Pakistan


Our client had entered the U.S. on an H-4 visa and applied for asylum based on her fear of returning to Pakistan. Our client belonged to a prominent Shia Muslim family that had been targeted by Sunni extremist groups, such as Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (“SSP”), and the local government was unwilling to protect them. Attorney Furqan had an expert witness testify in court that our client’s claim had merit and was consistent with the country conditions of Pakistan. The government attorney and judge then agreed to grant our client Withholding of Removal under the Convention Against Torture.
