People from both sides of the border are hailing the ground-breaking opening of a visa-free Kartarpur border corridor between India and Pakistan on social media. On 28th November, the Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa along with the Indian delegation laid the foundation of Kartarpur Corridor.

The Indian delegation led by former cricketer and politician Navjoth Singh Sidhu attended the ceremony on the invitation of Government of Pakistan. A large number of Sikh community members also traveled to Pakistan with the delegation to witness the historic moment of opening of Kartarpur Corridor.

The Kartarpur Corridor will facilitate the thousands of Sikh Pilgrims that will be visiting Nankana Sahib, Pakistan to commemorate the birthday of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism.
