Afghan girl appeals to PM Modi about visas being unavailable to study in India
Afghan girl Fatima, a college student, appealed PM Narendra Modi regarding the unavailability of visas to study in India.
“I, college girl Fatima from Afghanistan, appeal to the Prime Minister of India to give me a scholarship for studies in India. We love India it is like our family,” she said in a video recorded by India Today.
About 5000 students in different cities of Afghanistan studying in India are stuck in Afghanistan for the last year and are unable to do their studies due to the non-availability of visa.
After the Taliban entered Afghanistan, Afghan students enrolled in Indian institutes are still awaiting the issuance of visas to continue their education.
In May 2022, the students protested outside the Indian Embassy in Kabul and requested the Indian govt to issue e-visas at the earliest.
