India and Pakistan have enabled the belief of faithful to remain unconstrained by borders.

The Kartarpur Corridor is a testimony to the fact that bridges can be built amid seemingly intractable situations. Despite the prolonged state of fraught ties between India and Pakistan — exacerbated in August this year when Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, that granted the state of Jammu and Kashmir a special status, was revoked by New Delhi raising passions on both sides — this endeavour has seen the light of day.

PM Imran Khan Historical Speech at Ceremony of Historic inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor
The year 2019 marks the 550th birth anniversary year of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev, whose birthplace is Sri Nankana Sahib in Pakistan.
It appears that Khan is trying to sell the idea of religious tourism by attracting millions of Sikhs who have several holiest places in Pakistan.
He also abolished the condition of passport for the Sikhs coming to Kartarpur and the service fee of USD 20 dollars for those coming for the inaugural ceremony and on the 550th birth anniversary of the Sikh Guru on November 12.
The Kartarpur Corridor will connect the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in India’s Punjab with Darbar Sahib at Kartarpur, just 4 kilometres from the International Border, located at Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab province.
Pakistan and India after tough negotiations signed a landmark agreement last week to operationalise the historic Kartarpur Corridor to allow Indian Sikh pilgrims to visit the holy Darbar Sahib in Pakistan.
India and Pakistan have also decided that the corridor will be operational through the year and seven days a week and that pilgrims, except kids and elderly persons, will have a choice to visit it as individuals or in groups.
