Pakistan rejects Indian propaganda against Kartarpur corridor.
A statement issued by the Foreign Office said that the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (PSGPC) also rejected the baseless propaganda of the Indian government against the Kartarpur Sahib corridor.
Foreign Office said that the malicious propaganda by the Indian government is merely an attempt to discredit the ‘Peace Corridor’ initiative.
Foreign Office spokesman Chaudhry Zahid Hafeez said the propaganda was aimed at diverting attention from the inhumane treatment of minorities in India.
He said that PSGPC is responsible for performing all rituals in Gurdwaras including Sikh Rehit Maryada.
Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said that a Project Management Unit (PMU) has been set up under the Abandoned Waqf Property Board (ETPB) to facilitate PSGPC in this regard.
The Foreign Office spokesperson said that any Indian propaganda regarding the transfer of Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur affairs from PSGP to PMU was not only untrue but also aimed at the Hindutva-run Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India. To create religious chaos through the JP government.
He said that the Sikh community from all over the world appreciated the efforts made to complete the Kartarpur corridor project in record time and to facilitate the visitors.
The Foreign Office spokesman said it was advisable for India to take steps to protect its minorities and their places of worship instead of expressing misleading and embarrassing concerns about the rights of minorities.
