Swaraj Helps Another Pak National, Assures Visa For Liver Transplant


New Delhi: Continuing her humanitarian gesture, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj Saturday announced that a Pakistani national will be given visa for his liver transplant in India.

Swaraj’s intervention came after the wife of the patient, Anwar Ul Hussan, tweeted to the minister seeking a visa for her husband.

“Please contact Indian High Commission in Pakistan. We will issue the visa immediately. I wish your husband an early recovery.@IndiainPakistan,” the minister tweeted.

Swaraj has been adopting a humanitarian approach in granting visas to Pakistani nationals on medical ground notwithstanding strain in relationship between the two countries over a host of sticky issues, including cross-border terrorism.
