The team of 19 young women had come to India to participate in the Global Youth Peace festival in Chandigarh on September 27. But following the Indian army’s surgical strikes across the Line of Control, their scheduled return on October 4 looked uncertain.

While the authorities provided the “Girls for Peace Group” extra security, the young women came under pressure from home to return immediately.

On October 1, Aliya Harir, the convener of the peace forum Aghaze Dosti – an India-Pakistan friendship initiative — spoke with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who assured their safe return.

The girl tweeted :

To that, came a heartwarming reply from the minister, saying there are no borders for daughters, they belong to all.

In a tweet on October 2, Ms Harir — a student of international relations at the Troy University of the US who describes herself as a feminist — had said that Indians treat their guests like gods.

After reaching back to their homeland, the girl retweeted :

Ms Swaraj has won huge praise and popularity on Twitter for reaching out to all those who asked her for help.
