Imran Khan made these remarks during the International Sikh Convention at the Governor House in Islamabad. “This is not a favour. This was our duty,” he said.
He also said “I assure that you will be issued multiple visas. This is our responsibility. We will facilitate you rather will give you visas at airport.”
“Kartarpur and Nankana Sahib are as holy for Sikhs as Makkah and Madina are for Muslims. I promised to make access for Sikh pilgrims as easy as possible,” he added.
India and Pakistan have held a series of meetings on the Kartarpur corridor which will connect Sikh shrines of Dera Baba Nanak Sahib (located in Punjab, India) and Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur in Pakistan.
