Well,just last night,my brother was told by the Canadian Embassy that his visa for there was rejected.He'd been accepted by Queens College there a while ago,but the Embassy said that he could do the same course back home (engineering). Well we're from Pakistan right,and this rejection is obviously mainly because of the recent London bombings.I can't help but be pissed not only at the Canadians ( for they do have a reason to be more cautious now) but also at the bombers. It's because of people like them, who twist the teachings of Islam and give a bad name to not only us Muslims but now also to Pakistanis. My brother had gotten very good results,and had worked very hard for all this,but now going there is out of the question for him. He's also been accepted in an American college, but its unlikely he'll get the visa there either. It's so annoying.Because of some idiots like the bombers,things for us will get harder now,such as going abroad for studies,etc.So,anyway.yeah.
Im sure its not because of he is from Pakistan. There must be some justified reason(s).
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)

i can understand your position , i was rejected an american visa eventhough i met all the conditions and got an admit into an good university and had the financial backing too. it is very frustrating
That's odd. My ex-girlfriend from Russia got her visa no problem--and Russia's not on our current list of "friendly" countires...
We Are HereticIm sure its not because of he is from Pakistan. There must be some justified reason(s).
We really don't know either way though. It could be, or it may not be a reason. I'm sure they would not say that it was a reason if it was a consideration. Aside from circumstantial evidence, do you have any reason to suspect that what you think is true, qotsa? I'm sorry to hear about your brother's rejected visa. That really sucks.
it sure does.I feel sorry for him.
Well, Nordicvs, Russians aren't the ones bombing trains and buses, and that's how some of the Neanderthals who run countries think of things. Personally, I think the idea of barring visas based on nationality is unethical, because it presumes guilt. If you haven't ever committed a crime, come on over! If you bomb us, that's the price we pay for freedom.

but Russia is mostly filled with white-colored Russians, and russia generally is not know for blowing things up... especially as of late. I see only one thing in this: discrimination. Yes, America (or canada, in this example) is going by sterotype. Since most terrorist are from the middle east area (pakistan included), you can definately assume that they thought there might be trouble if they sent your brother here. We all know that this is false, without even knowing you. I can easily back my words. I am from India, and im the only person in my family living in America... (course, i got my parents, but point being). I can't think of ANY OTHER REASON why my cousins would have his visa rejected. Also, the same situation happened to one of my Austrillian friend. He got stuck in Singapore, and needed to get into the USA, and he got in, with no questions asked. My point: Could it be because of discrimation? Color, or Racism?
Yes, it's discrimination. I think that's obvious. I think the failure is that discrimination is inefficient. I mean, Even the insurgents in Iraq make up, at most, 1 or 2% of the population. Somewher like India, the number is probably closer to .001%. You can't find those people easily. It's a waste of time.
Paronia strikes and 2 fellow GF'ers get caught up in it. People need to get it through their head that nealry all people who pratice Islam are deeply relgious. They would never do a thing such as killing another person or blowing a bus up. You would have liked America yoda.
