NAROWAL – Kartarpur witnessed an emotional reunion when two brothers, who separated during the sub-continent partition, met after 74 years.

Muhammad Siddiq, 80, lives in Faisalabad city of Pakistan’s Punjab and he got separated from his family at the time of the partition. His brother, Habib aka Shela, resides in the Indian Punjab.

A meeting between the two brothers was arranged at the Kartarpur Corridor in Pakistan.

Videos showed both the brothers could not control their emotions as they burst into tears of joy while hugging each other. Their relatives were also present on the occasion when both brothers also recalled their memories.

Habib appreciated the initiative of Kartarpur, saying: “The corridor has become a source of their reunion and it will continue to help reunite other separated families”.

In 2019, Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated the Kartarpur Corridor; a border corridor between Pakistan and India, connecting the Sikh shrines of Dera Baba Nanak Sahib and Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan.

Indian pilgrims are allowed visa-free travel to the Gurudwara, the resting place of Guru Nanak – the founder of Sikhism.
