Pakistan Regrets India’s Refusal To Avail Concessions For Kartarpur Pilgrims

ISLAMABAD (9 News) – Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal has expressed regret over India’s refusal to avail concessions for Kartarpur pilgrims on 550th Birth Anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.

The FO spokesperson took his twitter and said that as a special gesture Pakistan announced concessions on the auspicious occasion of 550th Birth Anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak to facilitate pilgrims but India has refused to avail these facilities in blatant disregard of Sikh sentiments.

Dr Faisal said if India does not wish to avail these facilities it is India’s choice.

“As a special gesture, #Pakistan announced concessions on the auspicious occasion of 550th Birth Anniversary of #BabaGuruNanak to facilitate pilgrims. This has been REFUSED by #India in balatant disregard of Sikh sentiments,” the FO tweeted.
