Panja Sahib, a sacred place that houses a rock having hand print of Sikh religion founder Guru Nanak Dev, will be declared a ‘holy City’ by Pakistan government.
The President of Pak-Indo Friendship Association and Legal Consulate Ministry of Interior Government of Pakistan Arif Chaudhry announced this after a meeting with Punjab’s Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal and invited Badal to attend to a function that will be organized by Pak-Indo Friendship Association to mark this historic occasion.
Arif said that the forum will also work to sort out all the issues related to the welfare of Sikhs living at Panja Sahib besides the development of Punja Sahib in a planned manner.
Meanwhile, Badal welcomed the Pakistan government’s decision and said that he had always championed the cause for further strengthening the bilateralties between India and Pakistan through opening the Hussainiwal and Fazilka border that would give far more impetus to boost trade and business activity in the sub-continent.
“SAD-BJP government had successfully created a peaceful atmosphere in which the Industrial and Commercial activities were flourishing in the state. The communal harmony, amity and brotherhood amongst people of different religions were at par excellence in Punjab,” Badal added.
