As previously reported on the story:
"Petrol bomb attack against Pakistani migrants in Athens"
at dawn on Sunday August 25, 2012, a group of youths petrol bombed Pakistani immigrants while they slept in the area of Agioi Anargyroi. One Pakistani named Navid Navaz, was hospitalized with severe burns.
Today, 20 days after the attack, I met Navid Navaz at his home.
Navid says that he still cannot understand the reason he was attacked as he is a quiet and moderate person.
He has been staying in Greece for eighteen years now, has filed his papers for Greek citizenship and has rights to vote in municipal elections.
Through the years, he has gone to school for learning the Greek language and has received a certificate of language skills.
After the attack his life has changed: He does not go out because he is afraid of being attacked. Even when he stays at home he is afraid of a new attack.
Police told him that they have not discovered any of the perpetrators yet.
Because of the attack he was hospitalized from August 25th until September 3rd.
The rally was potential.
Protest march started from the main square of Agioi Anargyroi and passed by the streets where several racist attacks have happened.
At a moment a woman verbally attacked the protesters and complained that the police do not protect her from immigrants.
The Riot Police followed the march which ended peacefully.
