First Anniversary of Kartarpur Corridor celebrated
The Pakistan Gurudwara body, PSGPC (Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee) is to celebrate the first anniversary of the inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor. The Corridor connects Dera Baba Nanak in India with Gurudwara Darbar Sahib.
The corridor is closed from Indian side due to COVID-19 pandemic. Every year, around 3000 people from India reach the site to commemorate the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak.
On November 6, 2020, India condemned Pakistan over the latter’s decision to transfer the management and maintenance of Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara to a non-Sikh body. Pakistan has transferred the management and maintenance of the shrine from PSGPC to an administrative control of Evacuee Trust Property Board. The board is a non-Sikh body.
According to India, the decision is against the spirit of Sikh community at large.
