The Sikh community in Pakistan, India and Europe has heartily welcomed the Pakistan government’s decision to open the Kartarpur border. This decision has mainly been taken in an attempt to facilitate the Sikh pilgrims from India to visit Gurdwara Darbar Sahib. Kartarpur is considered to be sacred in the eyes of the Sikh community since their Sikh leader(Baba), spent the last eighteen years of his life there. Moreover, he also died at the same location, on 22 September, 1539. Giyani Gobind Singh, the administrator of Gurdawara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur-Shakargarh, informed the media that the early opening of Pak-India border is foreseeable. Furthermore, he said that visa-free entry of the Sikh pilgrims to visit Gurdwara Darbar Sahib would be highly beneficial to the Sikh pilgrims. In addition, Navjot Singh Sindhu, a former cricketer and a congress head, stated that this decision taken by Pakistan’s government would significantly contribute towards lessening the gap between the two nations.
