    Pak hospitality leaves Indians awestruck


    NEW DELHI: The relief aircraft which travelled to Nawabshah airport in Sindh, Pakistan was supposed to refuel itself for the return journey as well as the stranded plane. But in their haste, Indian officials forgot to carry something called the 'Shell' card with which they would have paid for the fuel.

    Pakistan came to the rescue. PIA officials spoke to DGCA and Air India here and it was PIA that forked out the cost of the fuel that was needed for both planes. "They did everything," said an Indian official. "We couldn't have asked for more."

    The Air India plane AI-940 had landed in deserted Nawabshah airport around 3 am after emergency procedures were set in motion. Air India authorities instantly alerted the foreign office in New Delhi and the Indian high commission in Islamabad.

    Foreign secretary Ranjan Mathai spoke to Sharat Sabharwal, India's high commissioner in Islamabad, while senior officials here spoke to Salman Bashir, Pakistan's high commissioner-designate in Delhi. The foreign office in Islamabad was roused as well.

    Indian officials involved in the rescue operation said the Pakistani system worked at lightning speed. The DGCA was given speedy flight clearances from Pakistani civil aviation authorities. Their interior ministry even offered to give all 126 passengers and six crew members interim visas for Pakistan if they needed to stay for an extra day while the plane was repaired.

    After the passengers landed, MEA special secretary Ashok Tomar said, "I just want to say that the flight with the passengers has just landed as also the original flight AI-940 with the baggage is on its way back and should be landing soon. The aircraft and the passengers got good cooperation from the Pakistani authorities and we are happy this situation has ended now and passengers are back.

    "Passengers were very well treated by the Pakistani authorities. They had to get the equipment necessary for getting the problem sorted out, so the engineers had to go and put things together. Pakistani authorities were very positive and helpful."

    Pakistani hospitality was extended to all the passengers who were given food and water at the airport. For Indian officials, the credit for the ease with which the rescue operation went off was attributable to the Pakistani side.

    Considering the situation, I find it hard to abuse them here.

    I will concur with maomao - thanks Pakistan, and you will be treated the same way if the situation arises.

    Extreme hospitality like recent visa refusal for a lame excuse to half of 300 odd Sikh Pilgrims to visit their shrines in Pakistan? Before all were given visa.Now Sikhs are not their brothers anymore?

    Pak denies pilgrim visa to Sikhs

    Amritsar, May 16
    For the second year in a row, the Pakistan High Commission has denied visas to Sikh pilgrims who were to visit the neighbouring country from May 17 to May 26 to observe the martyrdom day of Guru Arjan Dev.

    A Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee spokesperson said the martyrdom day of Guru Arjan Dev was being observed on May 25 as per the amended Nanankshahi calendar and the SGPC had decided to send a jatha to Pakistan to participate in the event.The SGPC had forwarded a list of 320 pilgrims to the Centre, seeking visa for them. He said the Union Government had sent the list to the Pakistan High Commission after giving the necessary clearance.However, when the SGPC approached the High Commission for visas, the Sikh body was told that they could not be granted the same as the event was not being observed in Pakistan during this period (May 17-26).

    As per reports, the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee is observing the event as per the original Nanakshahi Calendar on June 16. Last year too the Pakistan embassy had denied visa to a 340-member Sikh jatha due to the same reason.


    Just imagine in case Pakis got Kashmir then Hindu/Sikhs would need visa to visit Amarnath/Vaishno Devi. :shocked:

    to recognise that certain quarters in pakistan are becoming more reasonable - and we have to give them our support for that - i think none less than the ZARDARI government is to be given the credit - generally speaking with one or two exceptions , the Sindhis are more reasonable in their attitude towards modernization, the west and india

    Those reasonable quarters are the victims of Paki opression and terrorism, just like India... Inshah Allah they would free themselves from Paki opression... Bangladesh did it so Baloch and Sindhi can do as well.
