My husband died....

My husband died for this country...now they want to deport me
                   By Graham Brough  16/12/2008

The widow of a Gurkha killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan has been warned she and her children may be deported.

Colour Sergeant Krishna Bahadur Dura's widow Uma returned to her UK home last week after travelling to Nepal with her two young daughters to bury her husband.

But Home Office rules do not automatically allow Gurkha widows to remain here.

And now Uma has been told she may have to leave even though her four-year-old daughter was born in Britain and her 10-year-old is settled at school in Canterbury, Kent.

Uma, 26, said yesterday: "My husband gave his life for this country and for the Crown.

"I love this country and want to give my children a good education. I would love to stay and don't want to go back to Nepal. If anyone can help me I will be very grateful."

Julian Brazier, the Tory MP for Canterbury, said it would be a scandal if Uma were not allowed to stay.

He said: "Krishna Dura has made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of his country.

"His wife has long been settled here and his child was born here. This is their home and I urge the Government to treat their case with the compassion and humanity it deserves."

Actress Joanna Lumley, who helps promote a campaign to secure citizenship rights for Gurkhas, is also backing Uma.

She said: "It is unthinkable that his family should have to worry about whether they will be allowed to stay in Britain. This man lost his life fighting in the British Army.

"He is yet another example of the magnificent service that the Gurkhas have given to us over generations.

"I am calling on the Government to end the uncertainty and announce their right to live with us immediately.

"Everyone in our country owes this brave soldier and his family a debt of honour." Canterbury LibDem councillor Brian Staley said: "Uma Dura has been a member of this community for many years.

"Her daughters have only really ever known life in Britain and they should be allowed to continue their education and lives in Canterbury."

Krishna, 36, came from the Lamjung district of Nepal and joined the British Army in 1992.
                    He was based at the Gurkha base in Shorncliffe Barracks a few miles away in Folkestone.

Uma came to England in 2002 and settled with Krishna in Canterbury.

He was promoted through the ranks and joined the Royal Gurkha Rifles in 1997.

He was made colour sergeant last year and was then selected to form the battalion's sniper platoon.

Krishna was in a 24-tonne Warrior armoured personnel carrier when it was blasted by a Taliban roadside bomb in Musa Qala in Helmand province in November.

He was in his third tour of duty in Afghanistan and had previously served in Bosnia, East Timor and Sierra Leone.

Commanding officer Lieutenant Colonel Chris Darby described Krishna as: "An exceptional soldier, a gifted leader and a consummate professional. He was intelligent and totally committed."

A campaign has been set up to lobby the Home Office which wrote to Uma saying: "You may have to leave the UK in 2012."

The campaign is being backed by Dhan Gurung, a former Gurkha who is now a councillor in Folkestone.

Dhan, who hopes to get a memorial in Folkestone to fallen Gurkhas such as Krishna, said: "They have served this country for years.

"In the case of Krishna Dura, that was the third time he had been on the front line in Afghanistan.

"We cannot let his wife's life be destroyed as well."

The Home Office said yesterday: "We cannot comment on individual cases." But a Home Office source said: "She is assured of her right to remain here until 2012.

"Then she'd have to apply to stay in the UK like everyone else. She'd clearly have a very strong case."

45,000 Gurkhas have died serving Britain since four Nepalese regiments were handed over from the Indian Army in 1947.

She should be allowed to stay in the uk with her family. That is the right and humane thing to do. Thanks for the info. :Smiling:

I want to know God's thoughts... the rest are details.

Have you ever wondered which hurts the most: saying something and wishing you had not, or saying nothing, and wishing you had?
