On the occasion of Diwali, Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today (19) announced that India will grant medical visas to all Pakistanis with deserving cases for treatment in the country.

Taking to Twitter, Swaraj said, “On the auspicious occasion of Deepavali, India will grant medical Visa in all deserving cases pending today.”

Swaraj’s announcement comes days after she directed the Indian High Commission in Pakistan to issue visas for a string of patients, including a child suffering from eye cancer, a bone marrow transplant patient and to two others for liver transplant surgeries.

The Foreign Minister also responded to a tweet by a Pakistani national to visit her father in New Delhi who is undergoing a liver transplant. “Please contact Indian High Commission in Pakistan,” she had said, “We will allow this.”

Many politicians took to Twitter to greet the nation on Diwali. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he hoped the auspicious festival brings prosperity, good health, and happiness to all.
