External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has again extended her helping hand and granted a visa to a seven-year-old Pakistani girl from Karachi to undergo open heart surgery in India.
Swaraj announced this on her Twitter handle after the Pakistani girl’s mother, Nida Shoaib, sought her help for the early processing of her daughter’s visa for which she had applied in August.
“Yes, we are allowing visa for your 7 years old daughter’s open heart surgery in India. We also pray for her early recovery,” she said in the tweet.
Swaraj had earlier granted visa to a Pakistani national for medical treatment in India and won many hearts for her kind and generous gesture.
