On 27 September, a team of 20 students from Pakistan arrived in Chandigarh for the 11th Global Youth Peace Festival. But following the Indian army's surgical strikes across the LoC, their scheduled return on 4 October looked uncertain.

Worried about their safe return home, Aliya Harir, convenor, and leader of the Indo-Pak friendship initiative -- Aaghaz-E-Dosti -- reached out to Swaraj to help the girls return to their soil safely.

Harir tweeted:

Swaraj tweeted, "I was concerned about your well being kyonki betiyan to sabki sanjhi hoti hain." (I was concerned about your well-being because one's daughter is everyone's daughter.)

Harir also tweeted about her Global Youth Icon Award which she received from Irom Sharmila.
