“Listen lady, if you don’t want to be whisked away to a brothel in Brussels and your three girls trafficked into pedophile rings or have their organs removed, please go back to Pakistan. Stop trying to make your way into Europe.”
These were the words of British aid worker Sajad Shah to a Pakistani mother with three very young daughters. The woman was seeking asylum in Germany, along with thousands of Syrians and Iraqi refugees, after claiming she was being persecuted as a Christian in her home country.
The founder of the charity Love for Humanity, Sajad Shah has been helping in the Greek island of Lesbos. It is the first port of call for refugees who have travelled from Turkey and are seeking refuge in Europe.
