Twitter bio of student who reached out to Sushma Swaraj read ‘Indian Occupied Kashmir’: Here is minister’s stinging reply

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is not one to turn down requests for help from Indians around the globe. From genuine issues being faced by the Indian diaspora abroad to trivial requests for refrigerator and scooter repairs, the Indian External Affairs minister has handled everything with poise. So, when a student from Kashmir reached out to her for help on her Twitter acount, one wouldnt ideally expect anything otherwise. However, the stinging reply that the Kashmiri student received was something that few would have accepted. The tweet has now gone viral and for the right reasons. Sheikh Ateeq, who tweets from @SAteEQ019, had asked for help from the Philippines. He requested Sushma Swaraj to help him with getting a new passport, and he needed to go home for a medical check-up. I am from JK doing medicine course here in Philippines my passport got damaged I applied for new one 1 month ago I request u pls help me to get it as I literally need to go home for medical checkup (sic), But, he got a lesson in Geography from the External Affairs Minister as his profile said he was from Swaraj said that she would have surely helped him if he was from Jammu Kashmir. If you are from JK state, we will definitely help you. But your profile says you are from Indian occupied Kashmir. There is no place like that. @indembmanila, tweeted Swaraj. If you are from JK state, we will definitely help you. But your profile says you are from Indian occupied Kashmir. There is no place like that. @indembmanila And then, Sushma Swaraj acknowledged the correction and asked the Indian Embassy in Manila to look after the case. Jaideep – He is an Indian national from JK. Pls help him, 1. @SAteEQ019 – I am happy you have corrected the profile. 2. Jaideep – He is an Indian national from JK. Pls help him. @indembmanila Is there anything u can do to rush the process of my passport as it is damaged. I need to get back to my home, India. My health is deteriorating and I cannot shoulder the expenses anymore as I Ateeq has now deleted his Twitter profile.
