Karl Edward Rice aka Karl Rock, a New Zealand blogger and author of the book How to Travel in India is denied entry to the place where he lives that is India. Karl is married to Indian native Manisha Malik and lives in Haryana. In a recent video released by Rock, he talks about all that has happened behind the scenes in his and wife Manisha’s life for last 8 months.
The government of India has banned the New Zealand blogger from entering India. The content creator’s videos mainly focus on India’s beautiful travel destinations, how to safely travel in India, how to avoid scams and what all should one keep in mind while travelling in India. Karl and his wife Manisha together have exposed many scams of call centres, work from homes and many other shopkeepers and the auto/taxi drivers. “India is my passion” the New Zealand blogger says in his video. The blogger has donated his plasma twice in Delhi Plasma Clinic, during our fight against corona. The blogger left India in October 2020, to visit Dubai and Pakistan and when he left the New Delhi International Airport, the authorities cancelled his visa. He applied for a new visa when he returned to Dubai but he was later informed by Indian High Commission, Dubai, that he is blacklisted and a visa can not be issued to him for returning back to his home, India.
Karl and his wife Manisha wrote letters to Home Ministry and asked for help and guidance for the same, but both of them and their efforts were ignored by the authorities. No one is helping them to find out the answers to the questions like what happened? Why it happened? And what can be done to fix it?
Karl is European and New Zealand passport holder but both him and his wife love India and it is their dream country and they don’t want to settle anywhere else.
For the last eight months Rock has been questioning that why he is blacklisted? And why cannot he return home to his family in India? And he himself has no answer to this question. Rock will continue visiting his wife Manisha in neighbouring countries like Nepal, Bangladesh etc. for the time being.
