India-Pak humanitarian move: After Geeta, Pakistan's Ramzan to return to his country
New Delhi/Islamabad, Oct 27: A day after Geeta returned to her homeland on Monday, Oct 26, India has decided to send Pakistani boy Mohammad Ramzan to his country.
According to TOI report, 15-year-old Ramzan from Karachi, got separated from his mother, Razia Begum, when he was 10-year-old. [Pak runaway boy Ramzan set to be reunited with family after 5 years]
His father Mohammad Kazol took him to Bangladesh, where he remarried, but due to the bad behaviour of his stepmother, Ramzan crossed the border in 2011 and landed in India, in a hope that he will be able to reach his mother in Pakistan.
On Sept 22, 2013, the Government Railway Police (GRP) spotted Ramzan at Bhopal railway station and handed him over to a shelter home run by Childline.
Earlier, the Ministry of External Affairs had closed Ramzan's file citing the unavailability of an evidence proving his Pakistani citizenship.
In September this year, Hamza Basit, a 20-year-old CA student from Bhopal shared the pics of Ramzan on social media sites and eventually got in touch with his family in Karachi.
After knowing about her son, Razia contacted Pakistan's human rights activist Ansar Burney, urging him for arranging Ramzan's return.
She has also appealed to the Indian government to make efforts to send her son return home.
The PMO has reportedly reopened the case file of Ramzan and has called up the Childline authorities in Bhopal. A letter has also been sent to the President's office in this regard.
