Guru Nanak's Death Anniversary: India Bars Sikhs Pilgrims to Visit Kartarpur

ISLAMABAD: India, the so-called secular country of Hindutva propaganda, again demonstrated traditional bigotry by barring Sikhs from attending Baba Guru Nanak’s death anniversary.

Sikh groups from across the country continue to arrive in Kartarpur to attend Baba Guru Nanak’s death anniversary. Groups of Sikhs from different parts of the world have also reached Kartarpur.

Secular India again demonstrated traditional bigotry by preventing the Sikhs from coming to Kartarpur and not allowing them to attend Guru Nanak’s death anniversary observances.

Pakistan informed India of its decision to open the Kartapur corridor after completing the arrangements related to Coronavirus.

The Foreign Office also wrote two letters regarding the arrival of Sikhs in Pakistan through the Kartarpur corridor. The Foreign Office wrote the first letter to India on June 27 and the second on August 27, but India did not respond to Pakistan’s two letters.

India opened the Taj Mahal for tourists but did not allow the Sikhs to visit Kartarpur on the Death anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.

The religious freedom of minorities in India has been taken away by the Modi government engaged in Hindutva propaganda.

Kartarpur has been observing the 481st death anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh religion, for the past three days, the last day of which is today.

On the occasion, the Managing Committee extended special thanks to Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, wished him well and declared him a hero.

It may be recalled that two days ago, 14 US senators had demanded that India be declared a CPC (Country of Practical Concern). CPC is a US government term used to refer to countries that are considered the worst offenders to religious freedom.

Ten Republican senators and four Democratic senators sent a jointly signed letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo this month.
