Kartarpur Corridor to Reopen from Tomorrow

The Kartarpur Sahib Corridor on the way to Darbar Sahib Kartarpur in Pakistan will reopen tomorrow, two days before the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak. Amit Shah tweeted today, saying the decision will benefit a large number of Sikh pilgrims. The Centre had blamed Pakistan for not reopening the 4.4 km corridor, which has been shut for more than a year.

Many Sikh leaders, including Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi, his predecessor Amarinder Singh, and Punjab Congress chief Navjot Sidhu, requested the Center reopen the corridor before Gurpurab.

Movement on the Kartarpur corridor was suspended in March 2020, when Pakistan restricted travel from India after the Covid outbreak. Last year, citing the Union Home Minister's improvement in the covid pandemic situation, Pakistan first indicated its willingness to reopen the corridor on 27th June. Islamabad then said it would reopen on 3rd October.

The 4.5 km-long corridor connects Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Punjab's Gurdaspur to Darbar Sahib Kartarpur, a small town in Pakistan's Punjab province, about 4 km from the International Border. The founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak, has spent the last 18 years of his life.
