NEW DELHI (PTI) — The India-Pakistan standoff has left a bride-to-be dejected as her best friend’s visa application to New Delhi has been “rejected”, prompting her to knock External Affairs Sushma Swaraj’s doors.

Purvi Thacker, a journalist, vented her ire on social media and tagged Ms Swaraj’s official Twitter handle yesterday, hoping for a response.

However, Ms Swaraj, who is popular for her prompt interventions in such cases, is yet to respond.

“Counting on @SushmaSwaraj to untangle the red tape. Some1 who has visited India twice already can’t be a risk. All the best for your wedding!,” senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor tweeted.

“For all those who know mine and Sarah Munir’s friendship, you will understand how heartbroken we are that her visa application to India for my wedding in December was denied.”
“That my best friend cannot be there for what will be my biggest day is something that I cannot come to terms with.”

“Forget the hustling, the paperwork, the months of coordination and prayers- we didn’t know that it would end with a rejection,” Ms Thacker’s Facebook post read.

Thakcer said borders should not come in the way of human relationships, while acknowledging the fractious history of the two neighbors.

“Being friends and being there for each other should not be this hard just because we were born on different sides of the borders. We understand that our countries shared history has huge economic and political implications, but it also takes a toll on normal mundane things like human relationships and connections. Nobody thinks about that,” she wrote.
