Tensions between India-Pakistan, seems to be, badly affecting some of the personal and humanitarians relations between the Individuals of the countries. A bride-to-be, has written to External Affair Minister Sushma Swaraj, after rejection of her best friend’s visa application to New Delhi. Purvi Thacker, a journalist by profession, vented her ire on social media and tagged Swaraj’s official Twitter handle yesterday, hoping for a response.
However, the EAM has not responded yet. “Counting on @SushmaSwaraj to untangle the red tape. Some1 who has visited India twice already can’t be a risk.All the best for your wedding!,” senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor tweeted. “For all those who know mine and Sarah Munir’s friendship, you will understand how heartbroken we are that her visa application to India for my wedding in December was denied.
That my best friend cannot be there for what will be my biggest day is something that I cannot come to terms with. Forget the hustling, the paperwork, the months of coordination and prayers- we didnt know that it would end with a rejection,” Thacker’s Facebook post read.The young scribe wrote that borders should not come in the way of human relationships.”Being friends and being there for each other should not be this hard just because we were born on different sides of the borders. We understand that our countries shared history has huge economic and political implications, but it also takes a toll on normal mundane things like human relationships and connections. Nobody thinks about that,” she wrote.
