Sikhs Keen for Good Relations Between India, Pakistan: Us Body’s Chief

August 10, 2023

WASHINGTON: According to the American Sikh community, Sikhs around the world want peace between India and Pakistan since hostilities between the two neighbours hinder them from visiting some of their most sacred sites.

Nearly all Sikhs in North America support Pakistan’s move to open the Kartarpur border and create a corridor between the two Punjabs to make it easier for people to visit Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib.

“Are we content? Happy is a tiny word. The largest Sikh organisation in North America, “Sikhs of America,” remarked Sardar Jasbir Singh, “We are very happy and thank Pakistan for taking this historic step.

Former Sikh Association of Baltimore president Baljinder Singh Shammi observed, “This is a big khush khabri (good news) from Pakistan.” “We have been putting in years of effort. It finally happened.

The 4 km-long corridor will be officially opened on Wednesday by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, allowing Indian Sikh pilgrims to travel to Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib without a visa.

The Sikh Guru founded Kartarpur in 1522, four kilometres from the Dera Baba Nanak temple in Punjab’s Gurdaspur district. Here, where Baba Guru Nanak is reputed to have passed away, the first Gurdwara, Kartarpur Sahib, was constructed.

All Sikhs desire positive ties with Pakistan. We have excellent relations with our neighbour,” stated Jasbir Singh. “We offer prayers for Pakistan every day. We are unable to act differently since some of our most sacred temples are there. The primary source of Punjabi literature and culture is Pakistan.

Republican Pakistani politician Sajid Tarar “worked tirelessly with the North American Sikh community” to make this happen, according to Jasbir Singh, who also serves as President Donald Trump’s adviser on religious diversity.

Mr. Tarar claimed that he chose to work on this initiative because he thought it would foster better ties between the two nuclear-armed nations of South Asia. Good relations between these two nations are desired by many people, not only those from Pakistan or India. This is what all individuals who value peace want,” he remarked.

Jasbir Singh praised India for its favourable reaction to the Pakistani proposal. He declared, “We want Pakistan and India to be like the United States and Canada. “We want to eat dinner in Lahore and breakfast in Amritsar.”

Building the Kartarpur corridor, according to Baljinder Singh, would benefit everyone since it would facilitate the movement of so many pilgrims, which would also have positive effects on the economy. He stated, “We thank Prime Minister Imran Khan and all Pakistani leaders and officials who made this happen,” and continued, “A very big thing has happened and we hope more will happen to improve ties.”
