Prime Minister Imran Khan has formally inaugurated the Kartarpur Corridor at a colourful ceremony. The historic event has paved way for Indian Sikh pilgrims to visit one of their religion’s holiest sites in Pakistan without needing a visa. PM Imran noted that lessons that can be drawn from Guru Nanak’s teachings are about bringing people together and not to spread hate.
“I am happy we could do this for you,” he told the hundreds of Sikh pilgrims. “Believe me, I had no idea of the importance this place holds; I found out a year ago. He said the inability of Sikhs in the past to visit the Kartarpur shrine was akin to Muslims being able to see Madina from a distance but not be able to go near it.
