2,200 Baisakhi visas for Sikhs


2,200 Baisakhi visas for Sikhs

NEW DELHI, APRIL 9

Pakistan has issued 2,200 visas to Sikh pilgrims on the eve of Baisakhi celebrations.

The Pakistan High Commission here said the visas would enable Indian Sikh pilgrims to participate in the annual Baisakhi celebrations from April 12 to 21.

Under the framework of the Pakistan-India Protocol on Visits to Religious Shrines of 1974, a large number of Sikh pilgrims from India visit Pakistan to observe various religious festivals or occasions every year. 

Pakistan’s outgoing High Commissioner Sohail Mahmood said Islamabad’s gesture reflected the reverence attached to Baisakhi, both in its religious and cultural dimensions. — TNS
