    Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj is known as 'Super Mom' as she is always ready to help those in distress. Sushma Swaraj has eight million followers on Twitter and people from all walks of life tweet her for help to which she promptly responds.

    NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — Taking a personal call on the request of a Pakistani mother, Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has granted a medical visa to a seven-year-old Pakistani girl Maha Shoib for an open heart surgery in India. 

    The child's mother Nida Shoib had messaged Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj on twitter requesting her intervention in securing a visa for her ailing daughter.

    After Indian High Commission in Islamabad delivered the visa to Nida Shoib, she thanked the Indian Minister. 

    This is not the first time that Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has come to the rescue of Pakistanis who are in need of urgent medical attention.

    On the occasion of Independence Day earlier this year, Sushma Swaraj had said that India would continue granting medical visas to Pakistani nationals in genuine cases.
