Kartarpur-Like New Religious Corridor on Pakistan-India Border in Sindh Proposed

The Sindh government is planning to create a religious corridor similar to Kartarpur for Hindu and Jain devotees near the Pakistan-India border.

Provincial Minister for Tourism Zulfiqar Ali Shah has proposed establishing this corridor in Nagarparkar and Umarkot. These areas are home to significant religious sites, including historical Jain temples and the Shri Shiv Mandir.

To enhance religious tourism, Shah suggested introducing weekly flights from India to Sukkur or Larkana. This would make it easier for Indian devotees to visit these sacred places in Pakistan.

The Kartarpur Corridor, which opened in 2019, serves as an inspiration for this new initiative. It allows Sikh pilgrims to visit the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan without needing a visa, representing a major step forward in India-Pakistan relations.

By creating a similar corridor for Hindu and Jain pilgrims, the Sindh government aims to promote religious tourism and strengthen cultural ties between the two countries. This initiative could provide easier access to important religious sites, fostering greater understanding and cooperation between India and Pakistan.
