On the eve of 552nd Guru Nanak’s Gurupurab, Pakistan High Commission for India issues around 3000 visas to Indian Sikh pilgrims

NEW DELHI: On the eve of 552nd Guru Nanak’s Gurupurab the Pakistan High Commission for India has issued around 3000 visas to Indian Sikh pilgrims.

In a tweet, Pakistan High Commission for India said, “Pakistan High Commission for India issues around 3000 visas to Indian Sikh Yatrees on the eve of the 552nd Birth Anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.”

It further said that, “Pakistan High Commission in India extends profound felicitations to the Sikh community in India and across the world on the 552nd Birth Anniversary of the founder of Sikh religion. The High Commission also wishes a spiritually rewarding yatra to the pilgrims visiting Pakistan.”

It appears this time also only Sikh pilgrims are being provided the visas by the Islamic Republic of Pakistan though Guru Nanak being the ‘Jagat Guru’ that is Guru of the World.

Earlier, while talking to TOI on last Friday, Harpal Singh Bhullar, President of Bhai Mardana Yadgari Kirtan Darbar Society, said a large number of Hindu followers applies for visas to Pakistan to pay obeisance at various Sikh shrines in Pakistan but gets disappointed after not being provided with the visas.

Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism and is the first of the ten Sikh Gurus. His birth anniversary is celebrated worldwide as Guru Nanak’s Gurpurab.
