Pakistan accused India of “politicising” humanitarian issues: Mohammad Faisal

Vastavam web: Pakistan today accused India of “politicising” humanitarian issues and said selective issuance of medical visas to its citizens was not a gesture of compassion but “cold blooded politicking”.Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal said the Indian policy of selective issuance of medical visa to Pakistanis was “regrettable”.”No one is fooled by Indian gimmickry. This is not a gesture of compassion but cold blooded politicking under which individuals are picked at will for political mileage,” he said.
Faisal’s remarks came days after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj asked the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to grant a visa to a Pakistani woman for a liver transplant in India.Her intervention came after Sadia, the ailing woman’s daughter, last week requested Swaraj for grant of a visa to her mother.
