A delegation of 20 young students from Pakistan were present in Chandigarh for the Global Youth Peace Festival that put the spotlight on possible ways of friendship between the nation. But tensions that gripped India and Pakistan in the aftermath of the Uri attack and surgical strikes had the students concerned whether they would return home safe. One of the students tweeted to Sushma Swaraj who was prompt in her response. She spoke to the girls and assured them safe passage to Pakistan despite the tense atmosphere.
The girl is also a fan of actor Arjun Kapoor and tweeted this on her Chandigarh trip
Sushma Swaraj, in her response to the girl, proved that the bitterness between the two countries will never come in the way of humanity.
