In a report released by the Saudi Arabian government, it has been revealed that around 39,000 Pakistani nationals have been deported during the last four months. The primary reason for the deportation of Pakistani nationals from Saudi Arabia is visa violations. These deportations were ordered after Saudi Arabia made the visa process stricter. Saudi government officials suspect that some people from Pakistan may be secretly working with terrorist group ISIS, which is why it has intensified scrutiny of visas. Those found to have violated visa rules and regulations are being deported from Saudi Arabia.
Apart from having links with ISIS, some Pakistanis have also been found to be involved in crimes such as drug trafficking, thefts, forgery, physical assault, etc. The Saudi government does not want such anti-social people in the country, which is why these people have been deported. Now, visa issuance process will be made even stricter to ensure that such people cannot enter the country in the first place.
As of now, 82 Pakistanis are being held and questioned by Saudi intelligence agencies for their involvement with terror organizations. Pakistanis are also suspected to be the involved in the recent bombing that took place near the US consulate in Jeddah.
