BATHINDA: Peace groups in both India and Pakistan are seeking a liberalised visa policy even as relations between the countries are at the lowest ebb over recent ceasefire violations and killing of soldiers.
The peace talks through Aman Ki Asha have coined a new phrase ‘Milne Do’ after a spate of refused visas.

Only last month, peace activist and lawyer Imtiaz Rashid Qureshi held a demonstration in Lahore seeking liberalised visa policies between both countries.

Peace group Aaghaz-e-dosti has released peace calendars so that residents of both countries could live at ease with less casualties on both sides.
Qureshi said that those who have been frequently visiting the neighboring country are now being denied visas.
Even those who want to perform religious ceremonies are not being given the visas and that is something which need to be corrected, he said.
“Only exceptional cases that make it to the media seem to get visas. We do not want exceptionalism. We want ease of visa for ordinary people,” Qureshi said.
