Pakistan border the most crucial one to cross through India will soon open its doors for Indians and some Indians will be able to enter Pakistan without a visa, provided they stick to clear 4 KM path. All thanks to the Kartarpur Corridor Link.
This path of the Kartarpur Corridor Link will lead from Gurudwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur, in Narowal district of Punjab, Pakistan, to Dera Baba Nanak in India’s Gurdaspur district.
The Sikhs most prominent Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur is on the banks of the river Ravi, which is about 4 KM from the international border. The holy shrine, which dated back to the 16th century is of great significance to the Sikhs. It is here only the founder of Sikh religion Guru Nanak Dev, spent 18 years of life and its here only he died.
Moreover, from past 71 years, since the partition, Sikhs from India have been offering their prayers from across the border. As a part of Gurdwara is visible from a distance.
There has been always a demand to construct a corridor between India and Pakistan and when in six months Kartarpur corridor, which is also called as a corridor of faith will open, its then devotees prayers will be heard.
Then there will be no need for the devotees to pray from a distance, as the Kartarpur Corridor will give a visa-free access across the border, to the Sikhs holiest shrine.
Also, according to the Nitin Gadkari, India’s minister for road transport and highways has said that the corridor will be built in four months. The goal is for Indian devotees to be able to visit Kartarpur by November 2019, for Guru Nanak’s 550th birth anniversary.
