Pakistan has taken a good initiative to open Kartarpur border aimed at to break the ice between Pakistan and India and also facilitate the Sikh Pilgrims across the world. The initiative of the present government won the hearts of Sikh community. It is unfortunate that Indian response against this initiative is not welcoming one. The dialogue on corridor could be a step forward in the right direction in the current vitiated situation from conflict to cooperation, animosity to peace and enmity to friendship. Pakistan is determined to complete the Kartarpur corridor project within specified time so that Sikh pilgrims could attend the 550th birth anniversary of their spiritual leader Guru Nanak Dev.
