Pakistani Woman Tweets For Visa, Sushma Swaraj Promises 'She Will Get It'

Sushma Swaraj announced that India will give medical visa to patients whose requests were pending.


New Delhi:  In response to a Pakistani woman's visa request on Twitter, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj assured her that she would be granted a visa, despite tensions between the two countries.

Sidra Rafique from Rawalpindi had first approached Ms Swaraj in August informing her that she was about to get married to an Indian national and had already applied for a visa. She asked for her help and added that "she understands that visa procedure takes time".
However, yesterday she again wrote to the Foreign Minister saying "My weding date was shifted earlier as I did not get at 1st.My family has lost hope & things r getting complicated if visa doesnt approve".

Ms Swaraj promptly replied that India never refuses visa to its daughters and daughters-in-law.
Ms Swaraj has been considering medical visa applications from many Pakistani nationals notwithstanding the strain in the relationship between the two countries over a host of issues.

Last month, on Diwali, she announced that India will give medical visa to patients whose requests were pending with the government and responded positively to a number of such requests by Pakistani nationals.
