Violence in Kyrgyzstan Claims Lives of Three Pakistani Students

Kyrgyzstan

Violent clashes have erupted between student groups in Bishkek, the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, with attackers reportedly using batons.

The conflict has significantly impacted Pakistani students, with grave consequences.

According to Barrister Saif, the Advisor for Information in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, three Pakistani students have been killed in the incidents.

They reported that attacks have occurred on Pakistani student hostels, resulting in multiple injuries.

“Pakistani female students are being harassed. Violence has occurred in the hostels, targeting both male and female students. Kyrgyz students are attacking foreign students across Bishkek,” stated one Pakistani student.

Barrister Saif emphasized the gravity of the situation, stating that there are reports of three Pakistani students being killed in these attacks.

He highlighted that there are approximately 10,000 Pakistanis studying in Kyrgyzstan and urged the government to take action to protect them.

Videos of the clashes have gone viral on social media, drawing widespread attention. In one such video, three students appear, with one introducing himself as Mohammad Walid.

He explained that after a fight between locals and Egyptian students, mobs began attacking international students.

Walid claimed that six students had been killed, though he did not specify their nationalities. He also mentioned that police were not assisting international students.

Most of the Pakistani students, including Walid, are studying medicine in Kyrgyzstan. In response to the violence, the Pakistani Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan has issued an advisory for Pakistani students, urging them to remain indoors until the situation stabilizes and to stay in contact with local law enforcement authorities.

“We are taking measures to ensure the safety of the students,” the Pakistani Ambassador stated.

Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, acknowledged the advisory from the Pakistani embassy and confirmed that the embassy is in contact with Kyrgyz authorities.

“The protection of Pakistanis is of utmost importance,” she affirmed. The situation remains tense, and efforts are ongoing to safeguard the Pakistani student community in Bishkek.
