Chandigarh, Punjab: The pilgrims visiting the historical Nankana Sahib and Panja Sahib gurdwaras in Pakistan will no more have to go through hassles as Pakistan’s interior minister A Rehman Malik has issued directions to drop the existing process of taking away of pilgrims’ passports and conducting various enquiries before letting them enter these religious places.
The development is the result of the visit of a delegation of 15 legal eagles from Chandigarh, led by senior assistant solicitor general Anmol Rattan Singh Sidhu, which also met Sarabjeet Singh in Kot Lakhpat jail of Pakistan where he has been lodged after being awarded the death sentence.
The delegation also requested the interior minister to release Sarabjeet on humanitarian grounds. The delegation also attended a conference on ‘Future of Pak-India Bilateral Relationship Through People Contact’. The delegation members were given the honorary membership of the Lahore Bar Association, the largest bar in Asia.
