A delegation of Ahmadiyya Muslims led by Mehmood Ahmad had a meeting with the Union home minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi on Tuesday, where they apprised the minister of the problem faced by Pakistani girls married in India.

The delegation told him that the Pakistani girls married to Ahmadiyya Muslim boys in India, especially at Qadian town of Gurdaspur district, were not being given Indian citizenship even after fulfilling requisite conditions.

The delegation also submitted a memorandum containing their demands to the home minister, who assured them of all help in solving the problem.

Sources said some of the Pakistani women spent their life with their Indian husbands and children at Qadian and died there without getting the Indian citizenship.
