60 Afghans, including 23 Hindus and Sikhs, among 400 airlifted
While India’s evacuation efforts in Afghanistan continued to focus on its own nationals, among the close to 400 people flown to India on Sunday were also about 60 Afghans, including 23 Sikhs and Hindus.
With many people, including foreigners, now seeking help from India in their bid to et Afghanistan, the Centre has deployed a team of diplomats and defence ministry offi als at the Kabul airport to coordinate evacuation efforts with the US and other countries facilitating the exercise.
The 60 Afghans, including two lawmakers Anarkali Honaryar and Narender Singh Khalsa, were brought out amid reports that the Taliban were not allowing locals to leave the country. India had earlier assured Afghan nationals, including members of min ity communities, with ties to it that it would prioritise visas for them and set up an emergency e-visa service for them.
包括两名议员Anarkali Honaryar和Narender Singh Khalsa在内的60名阿富汗人被带了出来，当时有报道称塔利班不允许当地人离开阿富汗。印度早些时候向包括族裔在内的阿富汗公民保证，将优先为他们提供签证，并为他们设立紧急电子签证服务。
An Afghan woman evacuee, who touched down in India with her daughter and two grandchildren, told ANI, “The Taliban burnt down my house. I thank India for hel us.”
“India is our second home. Even if we are Afghans and live in that country, people often call us Hindustanis. I thank India for extending its hel hand,” Khalsa told reporters at the Hindon airbase, according to PTI. “I feel like crying. Everything is finished. It is a very difficult and painful decision to leave the country. Everything has been snatched away,” a visibly despondent Khalsa said. “They (Taliban) separated us from others while going to Kabul airport yesterday (Saturday) as we were Afghan nationals. We fled from there because small children were with us,” he said.
Honaryar said, “I thank India, PM Modi, the ministry of external affairs and the Indian Air Force for lifting us from Kabul and saving my life.”

Where is the Canadian Prime minister, who expressed about Punjab farmers te rored by Indian security forces ?
Modi and late sushma swaraj were always helpful in getting stranded indians from across the world.
Modi is the best leader in the world.
RESCUING INDIAN NATIONALS IS ONE THING AND BRINGING AFGHAN NATIONALS IS ANOTHER. WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT TALIBANS ARE GOING TO RULE AFGHANISTAN ATLEAST IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE
obviously po itical intent of BJP top netas
Wake up Hindustanis for Safety security Future of your Children, families.
within few months Afghan nationals will sit on prest ag inst CAA.
It is a tricky situation al with Afghans ! Sympathy for the plight of the helpless among the Afghans is understandable, but there is a possibility of some 'Extremist' Talibans to join the que to enter India / Canada with ulterior motives.

The India is behaving in much better and matured ways than many so called humanity supporters and developed countries, in fact they don't deserve to be called so
Afgani nationals should be totally investigated before bringing in.
Kids in India don't have food to eat and modi bringing afghans. Shameless
Hope there are no Trojan Horses in the Afghan evacuees!
Thank you Modiji .
Modi making india another pakistan
given a chance more than 50% of Afghans would like to leave their country, which is any ways sparsely populated. Those indians who bank more upon foreign opportunities and the people who are scared to live in intolerant India can migrate to Afganistan .
silent saver Modi
god bless him
