HYDERABAD: Lahore-bound 34-year-old Kamal Siddiqui is getting home but with good memories, floored by the generosity and kindness of the Indian people. His infant son Rohaan underwent a complex heart surgery in India, thanks to external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, who heard his plea and granted a visa to the Pakistan family to visit India for treatment.
“My experience in India has been very nice. The reception we got was more warm than expected,” Kamal Siddiqui told TOI. “Rohaan is fine,” he said after the infant got operated upon at a hospital at Noida.
In May this year, Kamal Siddiqui had made a fervent plea to the minister to grant his family a visa so that his son Rohaan could be brought for medical treatment to India. Sushma responded to Siddiqui and a visa was granted to the family.
On July 21, Rohaan underwent a successful cardiac surgery. “Today Rohan underwent a complex but successful cardiac surgery. Thankful to Jaypee Hospital and people of India for their support and care,” Kamal had said.
“Had a great day today. Rohaan was discharged from hospital,” Siddiqui said on Tuesday thanking Sushma Swaraj, Dr Rajesh and Jaypee. “Thank you India. God bless all,” he added.
