Pakistan eases regulations for Indian Sikh pilgrims in close proximity to border

Buses outside the Shrine of Baba Guru Nanak Dev at the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib

No one can deny my friend Imran Khan's contribution.

Confusion continued to reign over Pakistan's announcements on the Kartarpur corridor, with the Foreign Office on Thursday saying that Indian pilgrims are exempted from having to carry passports to visit the Kartarpur shrine.

India and Pakistan completed the 4.7 km corridor to commemorate the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of the founder of the Sikh faith on November 12.

Sibal, however, cautioned: "Nothing has happened in India-Pakistan relations in the past few days that indicates any change in the India-Pakistan dynamic".

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan mocked the Navjot Singh Sidhu during the inauguration ceremony of Kartarpur Corridor on November 9.

The Kartarpur corridor is scheduled to be inaugurated on Saturday on both the Indian and Pakistani sides. "I am very happy".

However, the ticklish issue of a $20 service fee imposed by Islamabad remained unresolved.

Before flagging off the first batch of "jatha" (delegation) led by Akal Takhat Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh, Modi and other leaders partook "langar" (community kitchen) along with Punjab Governor V.P. Singh Badnore and state Congress President Sunil Jakhar.

Five takeaways from Cowboys' loss to Vikings: Dak Prescott deserved better
The Cowboys had chances to win the game late, so Jones was obviously speaking from a place of great frustration. The Vikings had themselves a statement win on Sunday night against the Cowboys in Dallas, winning 28-24.

He also expressed his gratitude to the Punjab Government, Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee and every partner that helped build the historic corridor in due time.

Earlier, Mr. Khan visited different units of Gurdawara Darbar Sahib.

India's assessment is that the Kartarpur project was being implemented with alacrity and military zeal under the supervision of the Pakistan army as it has the strategic objective to use the corridor to encourage separatism in Punjab, say government sources.

The inauguration today is also a testimony of our commitment towards peace of the region.

The distance between Kartarpur, where Baba Guru Nanak spent the last 18 years of his life, and the town of Gurdaspur in India is merely 3 kilometers (2 miles). They said there were several countries that claimed to provide religious freedom and basic human rights, but the situation on the ground was to the contrary.

However, their camaraderie did not go well with the Indian social media audience, who slammed Sidhu for praising Imran Khan.

"National leaders like Sunny Deol and the Badals were ignored". Sidhu attended the ceremony after being invited as a chief guest by former Pakistan cricket captain and current Prime Minister Imran Khan. We did not like it. Pakistan's honest efforts have made Gurdwara Darbar Sahib the largest Gurdwara in the world.
