Sunny Deol nikla gaddi le ke Kartarpur aaya…
Pakistan’s relationship with India has been fraught ever since the birth of the two countries but particularly after the August 5, 2019 incident. India removed Article 370 of its constitution that protected the status of Jammu and Kashmir. India also initiated a communications blackout and occupied the territory of Kashmir illegally. Thanks to the maturity of leaders in Pakistan that hasn’t affected the recently improved relations with Sikh community and kept the Kartarpur corridor opened. Many important Indian figures are coming to Pakistan through the corridor, including former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. One such personality has got a lot of Pakistanis very excited.

“If I won’t go, who will? I’ll definitely go. It is my area and my home,” he said while talking to the Indian News Agency. The actor turned politician is a BJP lawmaker from India’s Gurdaspur district and will be a part of the official contingent that will be arriving here in Pakistan on November 9 along with other noted names like Navjot Singh Sidhu who’s lovingly called Sidhu Paa Jee in Pakistan
Pakistanis found their unique way to welcome Sunny Deol to Kartarpur
Others just had a simple question
Many are making references to the hilarious jokes from his movies as Sunny Deol comes to Kartarpur
Some people also had concerns that Sunny Deol coming to Kartarpur is weird because of his anti-Pakistan movies from his career
Just recently Prime Minister Imran Khan also announced that there will be no need for a passport for Sikh pilgrims visiting Kartarpur
Imran Khan had said that Sikh pilgrims from India would not need a passport to travel to Kartarpur and no fee would be charged from them on the opening day of the corridor, either.
For Sikhs coming for pilgrimage to Kartarpur from India, I have waived off 2 requirements: i) they wont need a passport – just a valid ID; ii) they no longer have to register 10 days in advance. Also, no fee will be charged on day of inauguration & on Guruji's 550th birthday

The corridor will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Imran Khan on the Pakistani side, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi will declare it open on the Indian side.
While tensions between the two countries remain at an all-time high, Kartarpur is being hailed by many as a momentous occasion for the Sikh community who have important religious landmarks on both sides of the Punjab and have always come between the crossfire of the two governments. There is, thanks to Kartarpur, after all, hope that these tensions can somehow someday be resolved.
