India to provide medical visa for ailing Pakistani woman

India’s Minister of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj, told a Pakistani woman on Twitter on Sunday that her ailing mother would be provided with an Indian visa for treatment.

The minister also said that she asked the mission to look into the request in reply to a user by the name of Nasir Mahmood Ahmad requesting a visa for a kidney transplant .

In September, a seven-year-old child requiring an open heart surgery was issued visa after the mother approached the minister on Twitter.

However, last week, Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Faisal said India attempted to politicise a humanitarian case.Dr Faisal said that the patient suffered due to the wait for the medical visa due to the Indian state’s attitude.
