Afghan Students Ditch India:-
For a thousand years, India has been a land of knowledge and wisdom for people worldwide. Many foreigners from different corners of the world visited renowned Indian Universities such as Takshashila, Nalanda, and Vikramashila, amongst many to expand their scope of knowledge.  The trend, for sure, hasn't changed in this century as well! Amidst the hostile takeover by the Taliban in Afghanistan, students were looking for better opportunities abroad for higher studies. The hopes of the students were ignited by the prospect of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) providing scholarships to foreign students studying in Indian Universities.

But the recent takeover of Afghanistan with the Pandemic proved "unfortunate" for these students. The students are appealing for e-visas, but their appeal has borne almost no fruit. Even the students from Afghanistan who are already present in the country were denied a scholarship from the ICCR, after sending "approval" emails. As the tensions kept on escalating, the Afghan students decided to ditch India and pursue their studies in Pakistan, Iran, and Turkey. Many of the students were found saying they were taking the IELTS test for admission to Europe Universities.  A boy named Tanweer Sahak mentioned that most of his friends went to Pakistan, Germany, the UK, etc., while he is appearing for the IELTS after the snub by ICCR. He further added, “I have no desire to visit India or pursue any further studies there. I think it's important for India to understand that while the situation in Afghanistan may improve in the future, we will never forget how they closed their doors to us.” According to reports, many more students are looking to get into universities in Pakistan and Turkey to complete their higher studies and achieve their dreams.  Although the government is silent on the issue, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar stated that the visas will be re-issued once “a level of trust and efficiency” is reinstated between the countries. Whether such a "day" would come is a whole other issue for another day!
