Sushma Swaraj grants medical visa to three Pakistani nationals; heres why its crucial
Yet another humanitarian gesture from India as External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has said three Pakistani nationals, including a nine-year-old girl, would be given visa for their medical treatment in India.
Minister asked the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to issue relevant papers after a request by Danish Memon for a visa to his nine-year-old daughter Maria for treatment of thalassemia.
Replying to another request by one Mariam Asim for medical visa for her father, she said India would issue the visa.
The external affairs minister also assured another Pakistani woman, Fariha Usman, of granting visa after she requested her for it.
Pakistan earlier accused India of “politicizing” humanitarian issues.>
