Sikh Community Invites Pakistan PM Imran Khan For Guru Nanak’s Birth Anniversary

The Sikh community has invited Pakistan PM Imran Khan to celebrate the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak. According to Pakistan Tribune, the invitation was extended by the apex body of Sikhs, responsible for the management of historic Gurdwaras worldwide.

Gobind Sindh Longawal Invitation to PM

The celebrations will commence at Nankana Sahib from July 25.

The strained relations between Pakistan and India have made it difficult for Sikh pilgrims to take part in religious activities. The Kartarpur corridor, which will allow the Sikh pilgrims to exercise their religious obligations, is seen as a “pathway” for better relations between two countries.

Once operational, the corridor will provide visa-free access to Sikhs from India to their holiest Shrine located inside Pakistan. This will also be the first visa-free corridor between the two nuclear-armed neighbours since their independence in 1947.

The proposal has been in the works for over two decades. However, it only began to take shape when in August when the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that Pakistan was planning to open the corridor.
