Listen up Prime Minister.
Kubra Gillani has been stranded in Indian-occupied Kashmir since 2010. Along with 250 girls, Indian Authorities are not letting them leave the territory.
Gillani, originally from Muzaffarabad in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, went to Jammu Kashmir in 2010 after her husband divorced her for not being able to bear any children. After applying over and over again for travel documents she was denied any legitimate way of going home. While speaking to an Indian publication she said,
“I am stranded without a permanent place now. I am hopeful both India and Pakistan will address my issue. I just want to be with my family again.”
She, along with 200-250 other girls have not been able to return to Pakistan due to Indian Authorities barring them from leaving the area.
They are quite literally trapped in the area. And due to this fact, Gillani created a video, pleading the Prime Minister to intervene in the situation.

According to news reports, Gilani’s mother has also been speaking to media outlets, asking them to help gain the attention of Imran Khan to bring her daughter home. Thankfully so far, Pakistan’s High Commission in India has approached legal experts in India to help out Gillani and hopefully the other girls in the area.
Let’s hope these efforts will capture the attention of Imran Khan sooner rather than later.
