‘In a major decision, that will benefit large numbers of Sikh pilgrims, PM Narendra Modi government has decided to re-open the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor from tomorrow, November 17. This decision reflects the immense reverence of the Modi government towards Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and our Sikh community’, Union Home Minister tweeted.

The pilgrimage to the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara was suspended in March 2020 because of the Covid-19 outbreak. The visa-free 4.7-kilometre long corridor connects the Indian border to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan. The road became operational in 2019 and was inaugurated by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. The reopening of Kartarpur will benifit thousands of devotees, largely Sikhs, to visit the final resting place of Guru Nanak in Pakistan, as the alternate way via Attari-Wagah border requires a visa.
