The representatives of the Sikh community thanked Prime Minister Imran, who is currently on an official visit to Doha, for the groundbreaking of Kartarpur Corridor, which was the longstanding desire of the community globally, according to a statement issued by the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday.

The meeting comes a day after Islamabad extended an invitation to New Delhi to hold talks to finalise the agreement on Kartarpur Corridor opening in a move indicating the PTI government’s continued efforts to reach out to the estranged neighbour.

Pakistan also shared the draft agreement between the two countries to operationalise the Karatarpur Corridor. Prime Minister Imran inaugurated the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor on November 28 last year.

Pakistan took this step to accommodate the longstanding request of the Sikh community, especially from India particularly in view of 550th Birth Anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.

“This is in line with Islamic principles that advocate respect for all religions and Pakistan’s policy of promoting inter-faith harmony and religious tolerance and also in line with Quaid’s vision of a peaceful neighbourhood. Pakistan would continue with its efforts to bring peace and stability in the region,” said a foreign office statement issued on Monday.

The move comes despite no apparent positive movement towards the normalisation of relations between the two countries. With India heading for elections in a few months, there is little chance for any major breakthrough in the near future.
