In news: Pakistan urges India to reopen Kartarpur Corridor for pilgrims

About:

  • Kartarpur Sahib Corridor connects Darbar Sahib Gurdwara located in Pakistan’s Narowal district with the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Gurdaspur district in Punjab, India.

The timeline of the development of the Kartarpur Corridor:

  • The Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib is said to be established by the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev in 1522
  • In 1999, the then Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif proposed this corridor under the Delhi-Lahore bus diplomacy
  • In 2018, the Government of Pakistan approved the construction of the corridor
  • On November 26, 2018, Indian Vice President, Venkaiah Naidu laid the foundation stone of the corridor from the Indian side, and two days after, on November 28, 2018, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan laid the fountain from the other side of the border
  • On the occasion of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the Kartarpur Corridor was completed and the first batch of Indian pilgrims was sent to visit their holy pilgrim place

Significance:

Kartarpur is believed to be one of the holiest places for Sikhs as the Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev preached there during the last eighteen years of his life. Thus, after partition, the Indian people could only visit the Gurdwara following the travel terms and conditions laid by both the countries.
