Takht seeks reopening of corridor

Amritsar, August 7

Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh urged the Centre to initiate steps to open Kartarpur corridor.

The Union Government had suspended the pilgrimage and registration for the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara in Pakistan on March 16 as a temporary measure in view of the Covid outbreak. Though Pakistan opened the shrine on July 29, the Indian Government is yet to respond.

Giani Harpreet Singh said the pilgrimage to Kartarpur could be allowed while observing precautionary measures. “The foundation of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is a welcome step. For Sikhs, the Centre must take steps to open the corridor. The suspension of the pilgrimage was a temporary measure. Pilgrims in batches of 50 could be allowed amid strict adherence to the guidelines,” he said.

He urged the Centre to intervene in the matter of Gurdwara Gian Godri at Har Ki Pauri in Haridwar and Gurdwara Dangmaar Sahib. — TNS
