No Terror Camps In Kartarpur – Pakistan Chides Indian Media Reports

Published

on

Just days before the inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor, Pakistan on Monday vehemently rejected  Indian media reports citing “intelligence sources”, which claimed the presence “ terror training camps” in Narowal near the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib.

Kartarpur Corridor To Open On 9th November – Pakistan PM Imran Khan Confirms

The report published by DNAIndia alleged that “Indian intelligence agencies have spotted terrorist training activities in the border district of Narowal in Pakistan’s Punjab province, the same district where Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara is situated”.

“Sources in the intelligence agencies said terrorist training camps are situated at Muridke, Shakargarh, and Narowal in Pakistan’s Punjab province, where “a substantial number of men and women are reportedly camping and undergoing training,” the report alleged.

However, the Pakistan  Foreign Office in a statement strongly rebutted the Indian media claims as utterly baseless.

India Gives In To Pakistani Demand On Kartarpur Corridor Over Sikh Sentiments

“Pakistan’s Kartarpur Spirit is aimed at facilitating Nanak Naamlevas, especially Sikhs, to visit one of their most revered places of worship and promoting inter-faith harmony. The content of the media reports in question is part of a malicious propaganda campaign in India that cannot be condemned enough,” the communiqué read.

It noted that the unfounded allegations about Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib being used for any purpose other than worship were a “deliberate attempt to misrepresent Pakistan’s goodwill gesture, undermine the corridor initiative, and hurt the religious sentiments of Sikhs all over the world”.

“We have no doubt that such mischievous attempts would be rejected with the contempt that they deserve,” the statement said.

The controversy came just days before Pakistan PM Imran Khan is set to inaugurate the historic Kartarpur Corridor that would allow Sikh pilgrims to visit Kartarpur Shrine without a visa.

The two countries formally signed the agreement to operationalize the corridor that would connect Dera Baba Nanak in India with Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan, located only over four kilometers from the international border in district Narowal.
