    ISLAMABAD: The Sri Lankan government has cancelled the on-arrival visa facility for Pakistanis, DawnNews reported.

    The decision was officially communicated to Pakistan’s Foreign ministry on Friday.

    It was taken in view of the rising number of political asylum cases in Sri Lanka.

    Earlier, Pakistani nationals were granted on-arrival visas in Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka is now scheduled to forward an application to Pakistan's High Commission which will state the travel requirements.

    Wrong decision.. There are way more Indian overstayers and illegal immigrants than Pakistani's.. And most Pakistani's seeking asylum are religious minorities Christians and Ahmeddi's.. Unfortunately SL is not a signatory to UNHCR

    Not only Political Asylum, SL was being used as a base by the ISI for launching clandestine operations against India after Nepal route became too dangerous. R&AW snatched a few anti-India elements from the heart of Colombo putting the Sri Lankan government in tight spot.

    Sri Lanka won't like the Indian agencies to get deeply involved like it did in Nepal where high profile political assassinations of anti-India elements were carried out. Also, India can do other things in case her security is threatened.

    One of the handlers of the 26/11 attack was nabbed by the R&AW from high-security zone in Colombo embarrassing the Sri Lankan government. Search for it on net. These operations are never officially acknowledged but some have been reported by the press. Sri Lanka is being used by ISI because Nepal and Bangladesh have become too dangerous.

    This is fantastic news.

    Now we need to make sure that Nepal also stops giving visa free/visa-on-arrival to Pakistani citizens.

    These two - Sri Lanka and Nepal - stopping such access to Pakistan, would go a long way to ensure India's security.

    Thats just fringe extremists groups going at each other.. There is no wide spread animosity between the two communities and it's all political motives.. This has nothing to do with it.. As i said most of these asylum seekers are prosecuted Pakistani religious minorities

    No. It was not at the behest of Pakistani Govt. Pakistani govt just simply washed their hands off the issue of refugees.

    They did not urge Sri Lanka to take this decision. This decision will be bad press for Pakistan and ripple effects.

    Plus those Islamic fanatics trying to infiltrate Lankan Muslims are groups originating from Tamil Nadu and Saudi Arabia not Pakistan.. Even most of you Indians are oblivious to whats happening in certain parts of your own country

    Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Yeah maybe i termed it wrong but the Pak authorities are in the hoop
