Many Mirpuri/Kashmiri men retained or have obtained dual nationality, holding UK and Pakistani passports…the myth being that it protects their links with their more cultured and cherished homeland of Mirpur in Azad Kashmir… where water is sweeter, the scenery more beautiful, men more brave, women less troublesome, and the religion purer.
Oh, and for some, where banking regulations make money laundering easier, where there is easier access to the poppy fields and a quick buck can be made through a UK passport inducing arranged marriage.
Well it looks like a few may get to live the dream, but without the perks..courtesy of the Home office..
I forecast a lot of Mirpuri men will have stopped scouring the house for that missing Pakistani Passport.
