Sushma Swaraj Assures Stranded Pakistani Girl Of Safe Return With a Beautiful Message

Aliya Harir is a 24 year old lady who runs a cross-border Indo-Pak initiative called Aaghaz-e-Dosti.  She has a Masters in International Relations from Quaid-i-Azam University Islamabad.  She has been in India for the 11th Global Youth Peace Fest 2016 which was between 28th Sept to 2nd Oct. 2016.

With the tensions between India and Pakistan rising due to the Uri and now Baramulla attacks, the whole delegation was in a lot of tension if they would be able to reach back safe.

Sushma Swaraj, the Indian Foreign Minister took it upon herself to talk to the Aliya Harir herself and assure her of safe return.  Overwhelmed by the response from the highest in the Indian Government, Ms Harir went on to Twitter to thank Mrs Swaraj!!

In reply Sushma Swaraj said something very beautiful.  In the end, the daughters are joint responsibility of the entire global humanity.  So it is important for us to take care of Aliya and make sure she reaches home safe.

While many who are angry against Pakistan – and rightly so – will question Sushma Swaraj’s gesture, but think of what she has done.  One she has stood by our values as Indians.  And second, she has re-affirmed that the much maligned Modi government is after all one which is caring and friendly as long as the other person doesn’t reply with terrorism.  Here are the two tweets!
