Is Pakistan Planning to Host 1 Lac Sikhs For Guru Nanak’s Birth Anniversary?



The 550th birth year of the first Sikh Guru – Guru Nanak Dev falls in 2019 and Sikhs around the world are keen to participate in the celebratory events to be held in Pakistan, the land where Sri Guru Nanak Dev was born and breathed his last.

As per media reports, the legal advisor of US-based Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), Gurpatwant Singh Pannun wrote to Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi: “We are writing to request you to you issue 100,000 visas to the Sikhs for participation in the 550th year celebrations of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

Sikhs for Justice (SFJ) with the backing of the global Sikh community proposes to bear the travel, boarding and lodging expenses of 100,000 pilgrims visiting Pakistan from the Indian state of Punjab”.

Critics argue that pro-Khalistan activists are now cashing on the religious sentiments of the Sikh pilgrims by offering them a free ride to Pakistan. It is amusing that SFJ has access to resources to pay all expenses of one lakh Sikh pilgrims.

The SFJ is working on Pakistan’s anti-India propaganda by promoting its pro-Khalistan agenda. Calling itself as a human rights advocacy group, the organisation is leading the secessionist movement ‘Referendum2020’ for Punjab.

Gurpatwant Singh Pannun had also tweeted this letter by deliberately giving a push to Kartarpur Sahib Corridor issue. “We welcome and appreciate the Government of Pakistan’s offer to establish Kartarpur Sahib Corridor Gurudwara for the purpose of granting access to the Sikhs from Punjab during the 550th birth year celebrations of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji,” he wrote.
