Kartarpur Corridor – Will it bridge the tensive India-Pakistan relations or it is a strategy by Islamabad to promote Khalistani Terrorists? For now, India has decided to open the construction of the Kartarpur Corridor – a decision hailed by Pakistan and calling it a “victory of peace”. EurAsian Times talks to experts to evaluate the news report.
“It is a step towards the right direction and we hope such steps will encourage voice of reasons and tranquillity on both sides of the border,” said Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry via Twitter
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi greeted the Sikh community on the auspicious occasion and said PM Imran Khan will perform the ground-breaking ceremony.
As EurAsian Times reported, the Indian cabinet approved the construction of Kartarpur Corridor on Thursday and Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh welcomed the ‘landmark’ decision to construct a corridor from Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district to the international border with modern facilities and government funding.
Thousands of Sikhs already visit the shrine in Pakistan every year. But the new road has raised fears among Indian security experts that it could be used by Pakistan and foreign-based Sikh separatists (Khalistani terror group) to spread terrorism in India, especially in the Punjab region.
Indian security experts claim that Pakistan has been working on the K2 Policy i.e. Kashmir and Khalistan. The Kashmir movement is already ignited but Islamabad is looking to re-ignite the Khalistan movement and revive insurgency in Punjab. Pakistan experts that EurAsian Times talked to counter-claim that India could also use its spies to infiltrate into Pakistan and foment trouble in the region.
