The main reason for the migration of Pakistani refugees to Iran is “poverty”; Another reason is tribal ethnic differences. It can be said that it has been approximately 45 years since the oldest Pakistani families immigrated to Iran.
A social activist, while describing the life, education, health, employment, etc. of Pakistani immigrants on the outskirts of Tehran (Rey city), provided statistics on the situation of children of this group of immigrants and said: 16% of these children are beggars, 17% are vegetables and 10% Round garbage and 40% are unemployed. Eighty-six percent of households live in slums and huts, and the rest live in thatched structures in the deserts of Rey, and 57 percent use “desert” toilets
Immigrants take refuge in the margins due to poverty and fear of crossing the border.
Lack of safe drinking water, lack of sanitation and poor living environment have caused them to contract various infectious diseases such as parasites, tuberculosis and hepatitis and its prevalence among households. Eighty-five percent of children do not have IDs, making it difficult for them to prove they are Pakistani citizens.
52% of Pakistani migrants live in slums, 34% in capers and 14% in thatched structures in the deserts around the city.
This group of people usually refuse to go to the judiciary to exercise their rights, either for fear of being “crossed the border” or because they are unaware of their rights. On the other hand, the judicial authorities do not have a single procedure in dealing with such clients, and some judges do not even accept the declaration of representation of these immigrants.
