The founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev, is believed to have spent his last days at the place, where the gurdwara now stands, from 1521 to 1539.
The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee on Monday wrote to Union External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, demanding him to take up with the Pakistan government the issue of a business promotion agency using the premises of Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib for promotion of women apparel.
Earlier in the day, Sidhu offered prayers at Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan and stressed on "opening of a new friendship chapter" and trade between the two countries.
The Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu said: ‘There is a need to open windows in the walls erected in 74 years (between India and Pakistan)’, while also stressing on opening of trade between the two countries.
With Indian government's reopening of the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor from its side on Wednesday, Gurdwara Darbar Sahib received a healthy footfall of devotees on the eve of Gurupurab.
Channi, who visited Pakistan to pay obeisance at the revered shrine Sri Kartarpur Sahib, on his return to the country said: ‘this is a historic occasion as the corridor has been reopened after the pandemic’.
Channi along with a group of 30 people, including his cabinet ministers visited the revered shrine in Pakistan, through Kartarpur corridor.
Kartarpur Corridor located in Pakistan's Narowal district across the Ravi river, about four kilometers from the Dera Baba Nanak shrine reopens to pilgrims long to visit historic shrine.
Pilgrimage to the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara was suspended in March 2020 because of the Covid-19 outbreak. Captain Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu have urged PM Modi to restart it ahead of Gurupurab.
Pakistan's transfer of the Gurudwar's control to a non-Sikh body is against the spirit of historic Kartarpur Sahib Corridor, the MEA said.
If South Asia has to become the powerhouse that would drive the Asian Century, it requires connectivity, infrastructure and an uplifting vision that seeks to unite people and not divide them.
The former prime minister was part of the first batch of the Indian pilgrims who went through the cross-border corridor Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan.
The MEA said conflicting reports were coming from Pakistan on whether Indian pilgrims would require passport to visit the Darbar Sahib shrine.
The hoardings credited Imran Khan and Navjot Singh Sidhu for making the Kartarpur project a reality.
It's the poster showing Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, Amrik Singh Khalsa and Major General (Dismissed) Shabeg Singh that has led to a controversy.
