Help Stop the Deportation of a Disabled Veteran

When Zahid was young, his father told him that he should serve the country he loves.

So that’s what he did.

Watch Zahid’s story:

  • Nancy

    I have met Ann and Zahid; if ever I could choose my neighbors to live
    next door to my home, they would be at the top of the list.  The
    decision in this legal case of the Chaudhrys,  is a travesty and a
    grievous miscarriage of justice by the US government.  I wish that the
    current US government could reflect what is better in human nature, but
    it does not.  I hope one day soon Anne and Zahid can live in well
    deserved peace in their home  — don’t give up!

  • Daniel Cotto

    I happen to
    know Zahid and find him to be a very likable fellow I have met many
    other very nice people who know him and trust him. I have seen him
    volunteering to help others, specially in fixing computers.

    When I first
    met Zahid he was already wheel chair bound and I can sometimes
    detect the pain in his eyes when he moves the wrong way, but I
    always see him encouraging others to do better.
    Could he have
    intentionally lied in immigration papers? Is possible, but the man I
    know does not appear to me as a liar. The little bit I know about
    what happened back then in addition to the actual knowledge I have
    of Zahid gives me the impression of a good man that made mistakes in
    filling out Government forms. Have you ever made a mistake filling
    out Government forms? I have.
    I’ve read in
    some blogs allegations that Zahid hurt himself on purpose to avoid
    a deployment. I think they are in need psychiatric help and should
    not be taken seriously since no one in their right mind would trade
    a deployment for a wheel chair. And Zahid appears to me to be in his
    right mind…
    Zahid, if you
    read this blog, I am signing that petition to keep you here AND, if
    I know ahead of time, I will go in person to support you in your
    next court appearances (I have to ask for leave at work). I trust
    you Zahid and I hope to be at your side helping other members of our
    community for many years to come.
