anupumpkinNew Delhi: After facing flak for not granting a visa to Indian actor Anupam Kher, Pakistan today said it would expedite the visa process for all non-applicants from India in future.

Kher, invited to Karachi Literature  Festival, had not applied for the visa, and slammed Pakistan for not granting him the visa.

“We have taken a lesson. We will expedite the visa process for all non-applicants, people who want to travel to the country but fail to apply for the visa, in future,” Abdul Basit, High Commissioner for Pakistan in New Delhi said while addressing a presser at his office.

Basit said he tried to expedite the process for Kher too, but it was too late.

Basit said that non-applicants who want to get their visa quickly will have to tweet their frustration out with the hastaq #anupumkin-visa.

“All non-applicants have to do is simply tweet #anupumkin-visa, to alert our embassy staff who monitor twitter round the clock.” Basit said.

New Delhi has welcomed the step taken by Islamabad.

“Of late Pakistan seems to have learnt its lessons,” India’s External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted. “Thanks! #anupumkin. We owe it to you.”
