Former Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj, who died of a heart attack on Tuesday, was just a message away on social media for many people on Twitter.
Many Indian citizens used to help her after the Twitter messages. His method of helping people was not limited to the citizens of India but also the Pakistanis.
Sushma Swaraj, who has been provided with a medical visa or is an ordinary Pakistani citizen trapped in India, has also provided assistance.
This is the reason that despite the extremely tense situation between Pakistan and India, such a Pakistani citizen is remembering Sushma Swaraj in good words.
Taiba Munir, a resident of Lahore, is one of them.
In December 2016, Munir was flown to attend the Global Youth Peace Festival, an international peace festival with a delegation representing Pakistan.
A few days before Taiba Munir’s departure to India, terrorists were attacked at Oudhi in Indian-administered Kashmir, killing several Indian soldiers and injuring several others. The Indian government blamed Pakistan for the attack.
A few days after the incident, when Tahir Munir and his associates arrived in India, the next day, the Indian government claimed that their army had launched a surgical strike inside Pakistan in response to the airstrikes, after which the situation was further strained. Done
Maia Tayyabah and her colleagues in India were terrified. Maia Tayyabah told the BBC that many of the girls in her delegation were crying in distress and fear.
‘what will happen now? Is war going to war between the two countries? If that happened, would we be stuck? How will we be treated? ‘
Only Pakistani women were included in this Pakistani delegation as men were not granted visas from India. The atmosphere of uncertainty already existed was further lost. In such a case, the head of the delegation thought to contact the then Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
Tagging Sashama Swaraj on Twitter left messages saying that the women involved in the Pakistani delegation are intimidated and their safety should be ensured.
The group said that arrangements had already been made by the organizers of the Global Youth Peace Festival for the security of the Pakistani delegation.
‘We were not allowed to go anywhere other than the festival location and the hotel.’
The arrangements made for the visit of the Pakistani delegation between the two places were similar to the arrangements provided to the Prime Minister or a senior official, according to the month.
‘Even an ambassador from a country in the fair asked me why you are being given so much protocol?’
I told them ‘war is going to happen in both our countries.’
According to the month, the way in which Sushma Swaraj tied her darshan in her reply, her words and actions in this situation were admirable.
“He (Sushma Swaraj) told us that you are like my daughters and like a mother, I will try not to get any heat and you can return home safely.”
Mahima Tayba told that Sushma Swaraj told us that she would make sure that we could return to our country without any profit. And that’s what happened. We returned with ease.
He said that not only was the media kept away from him on his return journey, but also on the way back to Wagah Border Lahore, immigration officials or any other agency officials did not interrogate him too much.
Monthly Taiba Munir said that Sushma Swaraj’s words and actions affected her and her colleagues in these difficult times. That is why when Sushma heard about Swaraj’s death it was very sad.
“They treated us like daughters and made arrangements for our safe return, so we remembered their behavior when we were in India and felt very sorry. Obviously, from that time onwards he was conceived as a good human being. ‘
Maiya Taiba Munir said she wanted to see many places in India. He is a poet of Mirza Ghalib’s poetry and wanted to visit Taj Mahal, Ajmer Sharif in addition to visiting the shrine of Ghalib but due to circumstances, he could not get a visa and opportunity to go anywhere.
He said that if leaders like Sushma Swaraj were in the two countries, peace would be established between them.
