Karachi Families Excited Over New Pakistan-India Railway Link
Ali’s family is one of the many divided families who haven’t seen each other for decades. “I probably won’t even be able to recognize or identify many of the children who were born during this long dissociation,” Ali says. Mohammad Ali, his wife and two teenage sons are excited to be among the historic passengers on the first train to cross the Khokhrapar-Munabao border in two weeks. affer’s wife and mother have been dreaming of this journey for over a decade. One of the main reasons for their reluctance to join their family across the border was the closure of the Indian consulate in Karachi, which is set to reopen in a few months.
