Kartarpur Corridor Opening Bridges Pak-Indian Sikhs in Pilgrimage

August 17, 2023

After the historic opening of the Kartarpur corridor on Saturday, hundreds of Sikhs from India made the journey across the border into Pakistan to visit one of their religion’s holiest places. They passed through a white gate to enter Pakistan and reached their destination.

Sikhs were heard cheering as they made their way along the road leading from Dera Baba Nanak in India towards the new immigration hall. This hall would allow them to enter Pakistan via a safe land corridor. There were several fathers who ran while carrying their kids on their shoulders.

Buses were waiting for them on the Pakistani side of the border to transport them along the corridor to the shrine dedicated to Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism. The shrine is located in Kartarpur, a small town roughly four kilometers (2.5 miles) inside Pakistan, where it is believed that he passed away.

“In general, people believe that God can be found wherever. Speaking through tears as he made his way into the corridor, Surjit Singh Bajwa told AFP that “this walk feels like I’m going to directly seek blessings from Guru Nanak.” He was crying as he made his way down the corridor.

Pilgrims on both sides of the border held out hope that the corridor would signal a reduction in the level of tension in South Asia.

Former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was one of the first pilgrims to arrive. He told Pakistani official media that it was a “big moment” to be there.

Many people feel that it has occurred at this time because of the closeness between India’s Navjot Singh Sidhu and Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, who both turned their careers in cricket into political careers. Prime Minister Imran Khan won the World Cup in cricket back in 1992.

Many were overcome with emotion, and some were even in tears. Others took photographs in front of a gigantic kirpan that was gold and silver in color. The kirpan is a dagger that Sikhs consider to be an essential part of their religion and must always be carried with them.

One of the Indian pilgrims, Davinder Singh Wadah, shared his thoughts on the brevity of life with the group. “Life is short,” he observed. “Since we are all going to die, we might as well have fun while we’re here and try to make the world a better place, and I believe that this initiative is the first step toward achieving that goal.”

The unveiling takes place only a few days before the 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak’s birth, which takes place on November 12 and is a date that holds a great deal of importance for the worldwide Sikh community.
