“As we have a security link, the entry would be a legal one under a permit on a passport-based identity. There will be no compromise on security or sovereignty,” Gen Ghafoor said while talking on a private TV channel.

Kartarpur Corridor, which provides visa-free access to Indian Sikhs to Kartarpur Gurdwara, will be inaugurated on Saturday. The corridor has been established to commemorate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism.

Earlier, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that Sikh pilgrims coming to Kartarpur will not require a passport and will no longer have to register 10 days in advance.

PM Khan, while making the announcement on Twitter, said, “For Sikhs coming for the pilgrimage to Kartarpur from India, I have waived off 2 requirements: i) they won’t need a passport – just a valid ID; ii) they no longer have to register 10 days in advance.”
