Indian Sikh pilgrims arrive in Pakistan to celebrate Guru Nanak’s birth anniversary


Islamabad: Nearly 300 Sikh pilgrims are expected to arrive in Pakistan from India via the Wagah border to celebrate the 551st birth anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak – the founder of Sikhism.

This will be the first group of Sikh travellers to visit Pakistan from the neighbouring country since the coronavirus travel restrictions were imposed earlier this year.

Pakistan’s Additional Secretary Shrines Tariq Wazir will be receiving the members of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee and others. Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) Chairman Dr Amer Ahmad confirmed that all arrangements, including accommodation and transportation facilities, have been completed for the visiting Sikh pilgrims.
