    ISLAMABAD:

    India may be the first country to impose travel restrictions on Pakistan because of its polio problem which threatens to become an international headache.:taunt::taunt::taunt:

    India Today reported on January 28 that the Delhi government has written to its transport and railway authorities to allow screening of children coming from Pakistan or going there. It wants the health department to set up a permanent system at the Ambedkar Stadium and Old Delhi railway station where the Samjhauta Express arrives. Such screening is also carried out in Jammu and Kashmir as well as Munabao, in Rajasthan from where a train goes to Karachi.

    Delhi has been polio-free since 2009, said the newspaper.

    “We will be pushed back by at least two years if another case now comes up,” Delhi health minister Dr AK Walia said in the news report. Indian alarm can be seen in the light of reports earlier this month that samples of a strain of polio virus linked to Sukkur were found in Cairo. Egypt has been polio-free since 2004.

    The panicked Pakistani Embassy in Delhi has written to the Pakistan Polio Cell about this news that Delhi wants to take no chances.
    An official working with the PM’s polio cell said, “This is a crucial time for Pakistan to take the polio issue seriously. Lowering the number of cases in 2012 was a big achievement but now transmission of the virus to other countries is a serious cause of concern.”
    For its part, the Civil Aviation Authority has told all airport managers to fully cooperate with health officials to set up vaccination counters in all international departure lounges in Pakistan.

    during the recent indo pak cricket matches India allow to issue them only 3k visa
    they might have thought it was less in return only less than 500 Pakistani visited India while in the series against Sri Lanka more than 3k people visited which proves that after the extremist groups like Rss has taken hand in govt establishments.Pakistanis has more interest to visit India anymore

    except Some entertainment related people like veena or Ali zafar etc even though they under go Some under 500 vaccine(already explained in 2012) before getting into India and are throughly rechecked before return to pak

    on the other hand we receive alot of Sikh brothers visiting their religious places or Indian Muslims visiting there relatives

    There should be an international ban on Pakistanis travel till they figure out how to vaccinate all their children for Polio and other diseases.

    Is Pakistan soo Poor that They can not even afford to have a decent Polio Campaign in their Own Country....

    To respected Paki members No Body accepts ur country to be Lebanon or Greece with their Multi Billion Dollar Tourist Infrastructure n Established Travel Industry

    But at least spend some amount on health care nothing is more embarrassing for a Paki that his/her children get screened for Polio at Samjhota Express Station......

    or an arch rival country like India gives Paki Children FREE POLIO TREATMENT......:pound:

    It's nothing to do with money. Afghans who are settling here refuse to take it because it is a 'conspiracy to decrease muslim birth rate'.:rolleyes:

    I thought there was an issue after OBL raid. Taliban banned polio campaign because of the role played by the doctor in OBL raid, isn't it?
