The humanitarian aspect of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj once again came to the fore as she granted a visa to a seven-year-old Pakistani girl from Karachi to undergo open heart surgery in India. Swaraj has 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. The girl’s mother said she had applied for the Visa 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.

Earlier, Swaraj not only extended her helping hand for Indian expatriates, someone from the country stranded abroad but also needy foreign nationals. Swaraj had earlier granted visa to a Pakistani national for medical treatment in India and won many hearts for her kind and generous gesture.
