Kartarpur Corridor ready to welcome Sikh devotees: PM Imran Khan

Islamabad: November 03: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday said that Kartarpur is ready to welcome Sikh pilgrims from India to mark the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism. In a series of tweets simultaneously, Imran shared Pakistan-side photographs for Sikh pilgrims coming to Kartarpur, saying, “I congratulate my government for preparing in record time for the celebrations of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.” He said, “Kartarpur is ready to welcome Sikh devotees.” On Friday, Khan announced an exemption from bringing passports for identification and registering 10 days earlier. Khan also relieved Sikh pilgrims from India of $ 20 on the occasion of the inauguration of the corridor and the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.
Imran Khan tweeted on Friday, I have removed two conditions for Sikh devotees coming from India to Kartarpur. Under this, they will no longer need a passport, but only a valid identity card. They will not even have to register 10 days in advance. No fee will be charged from the devotees who attend the inauguration ceremony and on the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Ji (Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism). The Kartarpur corridor will be inaugurated on 9th November. Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara, popularly known as Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, holds special recognition in Sikhism where Guru Nanak Dev Ji had spent 18 years and attained retirement here.
