Himalayan Refugee

This is a Documentary Short Film {27 mins} on asylum seeking Pakistani Ahmadis currently in Nepal. Ahmadis are a sect of Islam that are deemed Non Muslim by Pakistani Constitution and severe punishment is dolled out to any Ahmadi found posing as a muslim. Pakistani Ahmadis have migrated across the globe {206 countries} some of them are asylum seekers in Nepal. Nepal doesn't regard them as Refugees, despite them being accepted by UNHCR in Nepal. This has left the 350 odd asylum seekers in a limbo, some waiting for a decade to get govt clearance to be resettled according to UNHCR procedures. This is about their plight and their aspirations of a peaceful and dignified resettlement.

Impressive! It really achieved higher than any other Documentary movie before and it goes down as a masterpiece. Perhaps the best that cinema has ever been.

New creation of Nikhil Singh Rajputt. His films are waiting with a special look, because it offers something that every day, unfortunately, less and less can be found in the world of mass cinema - an interesting spectacle, filled with meaning, ideas and emotions.
