  • Pilgrimages between India and Pakistan are governed by the 1974 Protocol on visit to religious shrines, which includes a list of shrines in India and Pakistan, and for which visas are required.
  • The Kartarpur corridor provides visa-free access may need a separate treaty.

Importance of corridor:

  • Every year Sikh pilgrims travel to Pakistan to offer prayers at the Gurdwara. 
  • Katarpur corridor will facilitate their pilgrimage throughout the year.
  • It would act as a bridge between people of both countries. Thus, acting as a peaceful step in the otherwise strained relations between two countries.
  • The corridor will drastically cut down the journey pilgrims have to make from more than 200 km to just 6 km.

Concerns regarding corridor:

  • The “corridor” would bring Pak infrastructure right up to the Indian border.
  • Over the past year, gurdwaras in Pakistan have been used for a pro-Khalistan campaign.
  • Earlier this year, a gurdwara displayed posters and distributed pamphlets for the so-called “Sikh Referendum 2020”, and Pakistan denied permission to the Indian envoy and diplomats to visit it. 
  • Pakistan’s intent also remains suspect, and Indian officials are wary of the corridor being misused by both state and non-state actors in that country.
