Muslim woman travels from Karachi to tie rakhi to Hindu brother in MP

Harda MP: Pakistani national Shahida Khaleel’s happiness knew no bounds when she finally got an opportunity to travel to India from Karachi to tie rakhi to a Hindu man in Harda, whom she considers her brother.

After five years of efforts, the 45-year-old Shahida finally got a visa to visit India, and came to Harda on Tuesday to tie rakhi to Pankaj Bafna, who is her cousin’s friend.

“I had been trying to obtain a visa to India for the past five years. Finally, I got the visa three days back,” Shahida told PTI on Wednesday. She said her family had moved to Pakistan about thirty years back, though her uncle had settled in Harda.
