NEW DELHI: Former Indian cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu Friday thanked the prime minister Imran Khan and welcomed Pakistan’s decision to open the Kartarpur corridor for Sikh pilgrims in November.
According to NDTV, he said that he has “no words to thank” Prime Minister Imran Khan.
“They [Pakistan] are ready to open the corridor of Kartarpur Sahib on the 550 birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Ji. There can be no bigger happiness than this for the people of Punjab,” Sidhu said.
The former cricketer also appealed to the Indian government to reciprocate to Pakistan’s gesture. “I plead to the Indian prime minister and the External Affairs Ministry that if they have made an effort, you should also make an effort,” he said. This “is not the time for religion-based politics”, Sidhu asserted.
“This is the message from Pakistan to the whole world. Don’t think that anyone can oppose this noble gesture,” he added.
