Minister of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj won hearts amid rising tensions between India and Pakistan. The Union Minister helped a team of 19 young women, who were part of a youth delegation from Pakistan, go back home safe and sound.
The team had come to participate in the Global Youth Peace festival in Chandigarh on September 27. But following the Indian army’s surgical strikes across the Line of Control, their scheduled return on October 4 looked uncertain.
Aliya Harir, leader of the contingent and convenor of Indo-Pak friendship initiative titled Aaghaz-E-Dosti, reached out to the External Affairs Minister to help the girls return to Pakistan.
On Tuesday, Harir tweeted:

To that, came a heartwarming reply from the minister, saying there are no borders for daughters, they belong to all:
Aliya – I was concerned about your well being kyonki betiyan to sabki sanjhi hoti hain. https://t.co/9QyeMQfRwy

Swaraj certainly kept her promise and the delegation reached their homes in Pakistan safe and sound:
