Kartarpur Corridor: Pakistan’s Message of Peace and Tolerance

August 17, 2023

WASHINGTON: Pakistan’s envoy to the United States, Asad Majeed Khan, stated that the Kartarpur crossing sends a clear message to people all over the world, namely that Pakistan is devoted to peace, tolerance, and inter-faith harmony.

Ambassador Khan says in an article that was published in the Houston Chronicle newspaper on Wednesday that the concept for the corridor has been in the works for a significant amount of time, but the current Pakistani administration is the one who put it into action.

On November 9th, Pakistan opened the corridor, which is a designated border crossing that allows Indian Sikh pilgrims to access the Darbar Sahib Gurdwara, which is considered to be one of the holiest shrines in Sikhism.

It took Pakistan a record-setting ten months to construct the infrastructure so that it could be opened on the 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak’s birth. Guru Nanak is considered to be the founder of the religion known as Sikhism.

“For close to seven decades, Indian Sikhs have been denied access to the Darbar Sahib Gurdwara,” the article states. This time around, the journey ought to only take a few moments,” the ambassador stated.

He brought up the fact that Prime Minister Imran Khan stated during the inauguration ceremony that Pakistan was opening not only its borders but also its hearts to the Sikh community. He noted that this was an important point to make.

“However, it would appear that Pakistan’s messages of conciliatory intent are continuing to fall on deaf ears.” The ambassador added in his letter that “on the very same day Pakistan opened the Kartarpur Corridor, India’s Supreme Court denied a historically proven Muslim claim to the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya, India.”

“The site, where a mosque has existed for centuries, has now been handed over to Hindu extremists on spurious claims,” the author writes. “This is sending a chilling message to Muslims and other religious minorities in India.”

The envoy stated that “the stark difference” between Pakistan’s overtures in Kartarpur and India’s intimidation of Muslims and other minorities “has also been on full display in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir for more than 100 days now.” Kartarpur is located in Pakistan.

Since the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi removed Jammu and Kashmir’s special status on August 5, he stated that “the besieged Kashmiri people have endured an unprecedented level of state brutality at the hands of India’s security forces.”

8 million Kashmiris have endured enormous pain at the hands of roughly 1 million Indian forces, he wrote, adding that they still do not have access to hospitals, medications, or food despite the lockdown that has been in place for an extended period of time.
