On May 14 this year, Gulsher, who fled to India from Pakistan, fearing persecution from the extremist elements for being a Hindu is facing difficulties for getting his 3 siblings admitted in Delhi schools. After running post to pillar, Gulsher has now moved to the High Court of Delhi seeking admission for 3 of his siblings in Delhi schools. He has alleged in the petition that the Delhi government had denied permission for their admissions citing upper age limit.

Gulsher has already approached the school administration, field legislators and senior officials to seek help in training their 3 children, but his complaint is left unheard. Earlier, Supreme Court lawyer Ashok Aggarwal wrote a letter to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal informing him about the whole case but it appears that the letter had gone unheeded.
Gulsher, with his three children came to India from Sukkur, Sindh in Pakistan and are currently camped at Bhatti Mines Hindu refugee camp in Chhatarpur area of New Delhi. Gulsher’s three children, Moona Kumari (18 years), Sanjina Bai (16 years) and Ravi Kumar (17 years) were unceremoniously removed after giving admission in a government school in Delhi because ‘they were too old’.
In September, OpIndia had reported Gulsher’s plight who had revealed that after giving admission to his children, they were denied the same on the grounds of exceeding the prescribed age. According to the father of the children, they have submitted the documents collected from their school in Pakistan to the Delhi school and on the assurance received by the school, bought the book-copies and dress-shoes for all 3 children. He further lamented that their precious time was being wasted while sitting at home and they were suffering from mental torture because of the denial of admission by the school.
