104 pilgrims from India are granted visas by Pakistan to visit Shadani Darbar

To participate in the festivities, the pilgrims are anticipated to travel to Pakistan from December 12–23, according to a statement from the Pakistan High Commission.

In order to attend the 315th anniversary of Shiv Avtari Satguru Sant Shadaram Sahib’s birth this month, Pakistan has granted 104 visas to Indian pilgrims, the high commission announced on Friday. The pilgrims will be visiting Shadani Darbar Hayat Pitafi in Sindh province. In a statement released by the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi, the pilgrims said they would be traveling to Pakistan from December 12–23 to participate in the festivities. “The government of Pakistan’s efforts to facilitate visits to religious shrines and promote interfaith harmony are aligned with the issuance of pilgrimage visas to them,” the statement read.

Visas are also granted to many Indian Hindus so they can travel to Pakistan to see friends and family. Pakistani people can also obtain visas from India to visit a number of shrines, such as the mausoleum of Sufi saint Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya in New Delhi and the dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer. The recent dramatic decline in bilateral ties has had an impact on pilgrim journeys between India and Pakistan, as it has on interactions and contacts in numerous areas of life. In order to facilitate visa-free travel for Indian pilgrims to the historic gurdwara situated at the location where Sikhism’s founder, Guru Nanak, spent his final years in Pakistan’s Punjab state, the two sides inaugurated the Kartarpur Corridor in 2019.
