The people of Pakistan are giving the #Kartarpur opening its own momentum along with peace-seeking Indians. @SushmaSwaraj needs to realise that the maturer response for India would be yes,we will add voice to betting on peace,and take the next opportunity to talk which is SAARC

Everyone else was talking abt Baba Guru Nanak. Imran Khan is talking about Imran Khan.

Imran Khan would have made history, had he invited opposition leaders in the #Kartarpur ceremony today but I guess the establishment supported myopic Khan didn’t want to give national ownership to the initiative that has been supported across the board.

Decision to open Kartarpura corridor esp for Sikh pilgrims from India is a principled position based on simply doing what is right. Not linked to demands 4 reciprocity from India, Pak govt has taken this step bec it is the right thing to do – allow ppl access to their holy places


Hasan Zaidi

Minister of State for Revenue, Government of Pakistan

Indian govt increasingly comes across as that petulant kid who wants to play in the street cricket game everyone’s already enjoying but keeps nitpicking about playing conditions and pretending he’s too above it all to care much about.


Hamid Mir


Dear madam you said that govt of India will be represented by your two colleagues at Kartarpur sahib but today you said that two Indian ministers are going to Pakistan in their personal capacity anyhow we welcome two Indian ministers in their personal capacity


Khawaja M. Asif

Former Minister of Foreign Affairs

Opening of Kartarpur corridor is a good gesture for peace in subcontinent & a message of amity for Sikhs.But India is downplaying the event & response is not encouraging..Such initiatives must bring dividends,I am afraid not in this case..


Navjot Singh Sidhu

India Politician, Former Cricketer

The Kartarpur Spirit can make pilgrims of us all, venturing out on a journey that breaks the barriers of history and opens the borders of the heart and the mind. A journey that our people can walk together towards, a future of shared peace and prosperity for India and Pakistan.

Totally mixed and confusing messaging by the government on Kartarpur. Easier to say, “We won’t talk, respond, send ministers to Pakistan etc…. Until we will”
