Vadodara: Although many Indians abroad may have been flown back to the country, a group from Godhra in neighboring Pakistan remains stranded. This made a desperate request to return to India.
The group went to Karachi for a wedding there. A boy from Godhra will marry a girl from Karachi. Some people from Godhra have migrated to Karachi during the distribution and have settled there. But for years, their relationship with Godhra remained intact because of cross-border marriages and, until a few years ago, visits to relatives on both sides of the border.
“Of the group of 28 people who came here for the wedding, 26 planned to return. The groom and a relative will stay back, “said Saleem Murshid, whose parents migrated to Karachi, helping those stranded there. The Murshid said that things could be applied to their trip from Karachi to the border, but the group would need permission to cross the border.
Ishaq Bokda, a member of a group stranded in Pakistan, said in a recorded message that he and others must obey ‘rozas’ and celebrate Eid from their families because they were locked up. “We have bought travel tickets from Amritsar to Godhra. We have also given efforts as sought by officials. We just need permission to cross the border, “he said.
Asma Yusuf Hathila, a resident of Godhra whose mother, sister and husband of her brother is part of the group said that the group will return when lockdown begins and travel restrictions are imposed. “My three sister’s children are with me. They want to see it in despair and will leave even now if they are given permission, “Asma said.
“I will help them to travel from Lahore to Karachi and then the Attari border. The required documents can also be done. But to ensure that they take the train from Amritsar on June 4 with tickets, everything must move quickly, “Murshid said.
