Hundreds of Indian Sikhs Make Historic Pilgrimage to Pakistan.

▶️ Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits the Kartarpur Sahib corridor just before hundreds of Indian Sikhs start a historic pilgrimage to Pakistan, crossing through a white gate to reach one of their religion's holiest sites, after a landmark deal between the two countries separated by the 1947 partition of the subcontinent.

👉India and Pakistan signed an agreement last month to facilitate Indian devotees intending to visit the shrine, known as the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur.

As many as 5,000 Sikh pilgrims from India will be able to visit the temple each day, arriving in the morning and returning in the evening.

The rare cooperation between the nuclear-armed rivals comes amid a sharp deterioration in their already tense ties sparked by recent Indian actions in the disputed Kashmir territory.
