Pakistan High Commission has issued visa to 136 Indian Hindu pilgrims for visit to their religious sites in Pakistan, said a Pakistan High Commission press release.
The group of Indian Hindu pilgrims is visiting Pakistan to participate in the 313th Birth Anniversary celebrations of “Shiv Avtari Satguru Sant Shadaram Sahib” in Sindh from December 4 to 15.
The pilgrims will be headed for Shadani Darbar, founded in 1786 by the Lahore-born Sant Shadaram Sahib. It is listed in the Pakistan-India Protocol on Visits to Religious Shrines, 1974. The visas issued by the Pakistan High Commission are in addition to the visas granted to Hindu and Sikh pilgrims participating in these events from other countries.
“The issuance of pilgrimage visas to Hindu and Sikh pilgrims is in line with the Government of Pakistan’s efforts for facilitating visits to religious shrines. It’s also reflective of Pakistan’s respect for religious places of all faiths and efforts for promoting interfaith harmony,’’ added the High Commission news release.
