Rules for Sikhs visiting Kartarpur gurdwara relaxed

Observer Report

Facilitating the Sikh pilgrims coming to Pakistan to attend the birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak, Pakistan has softened its policy for Sikh pilgrims till November 30, sources said on Friday.

According to the new rules, Sikhs now won’t have to inform 10 days ahead of their arrival in Pakistan.

The law of the land about Sikh pilgrims coming to visit their religious sites made it mandatory to apply 10 days ahead of their visit to Kartarpur Gurdwara in the Narowal district. But now, Pakistan removed the condition and softened the policy for the Sikh pilgrims.

Pakistani officials said that the decision about policy relaxation was taken while respecting the religious sentiments of the Sikh community. Pakistani authorities said that they hope India will abide by the same old policy from December 1.
