While Pakistan on Monday reopened its part of the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor, no pilgrim from India visited Gurdwara Darbar Sahib as registrations for the pilgrimage still remain suspended here.

 

 

 

On Saturday, Islamabad made a decision to reopen the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor on Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s death anniversary on June 29. However, New Delhi had noted that it was being given a two-day notice as against the mutually agreed 7-day notice for travel, adding that Pakistan was trying to create a “mirage of goodwill” by proposing resumption of the pilgrimage suspended on March 16 in the wake of the COVID 19  outbreak.

Immigration officials here confirmed that so far there has been no indication from Union government to open the website for registration to visit Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara in Pakistan.

Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara is located in Pakistan’s Narowal district across the river Ravi, about four kilometers from the Dera Baba Nanak shrine. It is the final resting place of Guru Nanak Dev, who had spent the last 18 years of his life in Kartarpur.

Indian pilgrims of all faiths are allowed to undertake round the year visa-free travel to the historic gurdwara.

The relations between India and Pakistan nosedived after India scrapped Jammu and Kashmir”s special status on August 5, 2019 and bifurcated it into two union territories. Pakistan downgraded diplomatic ties with India and expelled the Indian High Commissioner.
