A 12-member delegation of British Sikh soldiers that visited Pakistan has urged the international Sikh community to visit Kartarpur Corridor, lauding Pakistan’s efforts to preserve holy sites.
During its visit to Pakistan, the delegation visited all of the important Sikh religious sites and appreciated the country’s efforts to preserve the holy sites of Sikh religion.
“I am very grateful to the Pakistani military for facilitating this amazing visit for our Sikh soldiers, as for many of them, this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Major General Celia J Harvey, the head of the delegation, told a news agency.
Talking about Kartarpur Corridor, Harvey said: “I will ask the Indian Sikh community to come here and see the facilitation. They can stay here, have food, and worship as much as they want, and this can be a model project to increase cultural harmony amongst people of both countries.”
Corporal Chamandeep Singh said: “We are here for so many days, and it feels like home. We are not feeling as if we are in another country. Punjab in India and Pakistan are the same. We felt so happy when people here talked with us in Punjabi.”
The delegation also met Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and thanked him for warmly hosting the delegation for the historic visit.
