External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today announced that a Pakistani woman would be given visa for undergoing a liver transplant surgery in India. “We are giving Visa for the liver transplant surgery of Ms.Farzana Ijaz in India (sic),” Swaraj wrote on Twitter. The minister’s intervention came after M Mohsin, a resident of Faisalabad in Pakistan, tweeted to her, requesting visa for his ailing aunt. “@SushmaSwaraj Madam my Aunt is (in a) very serious condition need liver transplant pls grant medical Visa. Humble request. Plss! (sic),” Mohsin had written on the microblogging website. Swaraj has been sympathetically considering the medical visa applications of scores of Pakistani nationals, notwithstanding the strains in ties between India and Pakistan over a host of issues, including cross-border terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. Yesterday, she had announced that India was giving medical visas to Pakistani nationals seeking treatment in the country.
