India tried to politicise Kartarpur border opening: Imran Khan


Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that India gave a “political colour” to his gesture of opening the Kartarpur border and called it “unfortunate”. Pakistan opened the Kartarpur border in November to facilitate visa-free pilgrimage by Indian Sikhs to Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara, where Sikhism’s founder Guru Nanak Dev spent the last 18 years of his life.

“Unfortunately, India portrayed it as us seeking political advantage. During my swearing-in ceremony when Navjot Singh Sidhu visited we had discussed this,” Khan was quoted as saying by Dawn while he was addressing the Cabinet.

the Indian media has given Kartarpur (border opening) a political colour, as if we did this to gain some sort of political mileage. This is not true. We did it because it is part of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s manifesto.” Read More
