India lodges strong protest with Pakistan on harassment of diplomats

Security concerns for India continue with pro Khalistan posters being spotted at Sikh pilgrimage sites across Pakistan

Pakistan on Thursday welcomed India's decision to build a corridor from Punjab to Pakistan's Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib, the final resting place of Guru Nanak.

In response, Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal said Prime Minister Khan has proposed in writing to hold talks on all issues, including Kartarpura, but India refused to come forward.

The shrine is visible from the Indian side of the border.

The corridor's opening will form part of Guru Nanak's 550th birth anniversary celebrations.

"Government of Pakistan will be urged to recognize the sentiments of the Sikh community and to develop a corridor with suitable facilities in their territory as well", the Indian government said in a statement.

Amid there is a big tribute for the Sikh pilgrims that India and Pakistan will be united for them.

Irving nets 43, leads Celtics past Raptors in OT
The Jazz fought back from a 16-point deficit to take the lead late in the game, but they couldn't quite escape with the victory. Teams we didn't expect to struggle so much are doing so while certain expected contenders have been a bit slow out of the gate.

India's Home Minister Rajnath Singh in a tweet earlier today said: "In landmark decision, the Cabinet approves building and development of Kartarpur corridor from Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district to International Border".

Akali Dal patriarch said the NDA government's formal request to Pakistan should decisively remove all hurdles in the path of fulfilling the long-cherished dream of every Sikh to pay obeisance at the historic "Gurudham". He said Pakistan's efforts were continuing and it issued 3,838 visas to Indian Sikhs to visit Pakistan to attend religious ceremonies. Guru Nanak Dev, founder of Sikhism, had spent over 18 years of his life here. "There is no official communique from Pakistan on this", Badal had said.

New Delhi reminded Pakistan that this was in contrast to the treatment of the Pakistani High Commissioner and the Consular officials who were provided full access to meet the Pakistani pilgrims now in India on a pilgrimage to Kalyar Sharif.

Meanwhile, Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Partap Singh Bajwa also welcomed the union cabinet's decision to develop the Kartarpur corridor.

Kartarpur Sahib is situated in Narowal district of Pakistan's Punjab province and there have been demands to build a corridor linking it with Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district of Punjab. It said the access was denied despite the Pakistan Foreign Ministry granting them prior travel permission.
