That’s great news! Baisakhi is an important festival for Sikhs, and it’s heartening to hear that Pakistan has issued 2,856 visas to Sikh pilgrims for the occasion. This shows a positive step towards promoting religious harmony and strengthening people-to-people ties between Pakistan and India, where most of the Sikh community lives.
The Sikh community has a significant presence in Pakistan, particularly in the province of Punjab, which is home to several important Sikh shrines, including the birthplace of Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh faith. The visas will allow Sikhs from India and other parts of the world to visit these shrines and participate in Baisakhi celebrations in Pakistan.
It’s essential to encourage such cultural exchanges and people-to-people contacts between countries, which can help to bridge differences and promote understanding and goodwill. I hope that this move by Pakistan will be reciprocated by India and other countries, and we’ll see more such positive developments in the future.
