External Affair Minister Sushma Swaraj has yet again come forward to help a human in need. Osama Ali, a resident of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, has been granted permission for a medical visa without an approval letter from the Pakistan Foreign Ministry.
Diagnosed with a tumour in the liver, the 24-year-old in Pak occupied Kashmir wished to travel to New Delhi for treatment and wanted a medical emergency visa. He is reported to be admitted in a Saket hospital for his treatment.
Earlier, Sartaz Aziz, the Pakistan Foreign Ministry advisor had denied approving the patient’s visa application from Pakistan’s side which meant that Ali couldn’t travel to Delhi; this prompted his father to make an appeal to Sushma Swaraj about the situation. The Indian External Affair Minister was generous enough to react and take an appropriate decision on the matter.
She once again made a strong point to Pakistan by revoking the standard visa requirement procedure, allowing Ali to get treated in Delhi. Swaraj tweeted with the update that Ali’s visa has been approved without the letter, mentioning that Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) is still an integral part of India which has been illegally occupied by Pakistan. Here is her tweet:
POK is an integral part of India. Pakistan has illegally occupied it. We are giving him visa. No letter required. https://t.co/cErxQw7Cht
