Kartarpur Corridor Opening: Excellent security arrangements ensured for Sikh Pilgrims

LAHORE, Pakistan: As the Kartarpur Corridor Opening is inching closer, the Punjab government has ensured excellent security arrangements on the arrival of Sikh Yatrees (Pilgrims).

Hundreds of Sikh Yatrees from across the world including India have arrived in Pakistan to take part in 550th Birth Anniversary Celebrations of their spiritual leader Baba Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

Talking to media representatives in Lahore on Thursday, the Punjab Minister for Information and Culture Mian Aslam Iqbal said that adequate security arrangements have been made for Sikh Yatrees.

The information minister said that all minorities enjoy full religious freedom in Pakistan. He said that Islam also teaches us a lesson of equality and love with humanity.
