Kartarpur Corridor: PM thanks Imran Khan for understanding India’s sentiment

The Kartarpur corridor links Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan, the final resting place of Guru Nanak Devji, to Dera Baba Nanak Shrine in this Punjab district.

The Kartarpur Corridor was first proposed in early 1999 by Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Nawaz Sharif, the prime ministers of India and Pakistan respectively, as part of the Delhi–Lahore Bus diplomacy. 

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday formally inaugurated the historic Kartarpur corridor ahead of the 550th birth anniversary of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev.

Imran Khan inaugurated the corridor by removing a curtain that was lifted by hot air balloons. A huge kirpan (dagger) was displayed at the inauguration site.

The historic inauguration of the corridor comes in the midst of frayed ties between India and Pakistan following New Delhi’s decision in August to withdraw Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and bifurcate the State into two Union Territories.
