In a milestone harmony move, the Pakistan government opened the Kartarpur Corridor today, allowing Indian pioneers to visit the venerated Sikh Guru’s last resting spot without a visa.
The three-kilometer passage gives sans visa access to Sikh explorers, enabling them to head out to Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, where Guru Nanak, the originator of Sikhism, spent the last long stretches of his life. The section joins the Narowal area to Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur in Punjab, India. The venture, touted by numerous individuals as the ‘passage of harmony’ between the two most outstanding opponents, was finished in a record time of eleven months.
Many took to social media to share their notions over the memorable move. Big names, for example, Mahira Khan, Mawra Hocane, Armeena Khan and others took to social media to share their musings and congratulated the government.

Beginning today, the Kartarpur Corridor will enable a large number of Sikh lovers to perform strict customs at the sanctum. Prior, Sikh explorers needed to make a trip by street to Lahore and afterward to Narowal to play out their ceremonies at the Gurudwara Darbar Sahib.
