So. The situation here is a little complicated but I would really appreciate it if someone gave me some advice on what to do. I know a lot of people read the words 'Pakistani citizen seeking asylum' and probably groan because they assume it's somebody trying to get a free pass into a nicer country, but that's really not the situation here.
To sum it up, I'm a 19 year old female going through a really difficult time at home. My parents are - to put it lightly - uber religious Muslims whose views and beliefs differ radically from mine. I've been pretty much forced to adhere to that lifestyle and haven't been given a lot of my rights. Unfortunately, there's absolutely no margin for me to disagree with them and ask that they let me live my life as I wish. If I do that, I will definitely get beaten up and maybe even killed. I know that this kind of situation is somewhat of a valid ground for requesting asylum in another country, but I obviously need to reach that country first before I can ask for help.
I guess I was wondering where my best chances are, geographically. I can apply for a visa but I'm not sure what to say when I get asked for the purpose of my trip. I'm assuming that saying that I plan on seeking asylum is probably not the smartest thing. What would be the best course of action for me regarding the whole process?
I'd really appreciate it if somebody with experience could give me some advice, or insight. I'm really at a loss regarding what to do. The situation is getting worse and starting to take a toll on my mental health. I'm sure you're all aware that 19 is a pivotal age in anybody's life, and it really sucks watching time fly by and take all my opportunities with it. Thanks!
