External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday came to the aid of a sick Pakistani national by giving him a medical visa for his liver transplant surgery in India.

“Yes, we are granting visa for your father’s liver transplant surgery in India,” Swaraj tweeted in reply to a Pakistani resident Hamid Ali Ashraf, whose father Mohammed Ashraf is to be treated at the Max Hospital in Saket in New Delhi.

“Thank you so much mam thank u. I am heartly greatful to you mam. It is really a great deed towards humanity,” Ashraf said in reply to Swaraj’s gesture.

He had earlier put out a series of tweets since the start of this month while tagging Swaraj and urging her to grant him a medical visa.

“Respected mam please help us. My father need liver transplant his condtion is very bad please issue the visa I request you mam please,” Ashraf earlier tweeted.

Swaraj has accorded her nod in the past to many Pakistani nationals seeking to get medical treatment in India.
