For those unaware, the Kartarur Corridor links the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, the final resting place of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev, to the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in the Gurdaspur district of India's Punjab. The 4 km-long corridor which provides visa-free access to Indian Sikh pilgrims to visit the Darbar Sahib was inaugurated by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in 2019. In a major decision, the corridor was reopened on November 17 last year after remaining shut owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
