Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said India has responded well to Pakistan's initiative in its bid to bring the Sikh community closer. The Minister told this yesterday during his visit to the stall of Indian High Commission at the Pakistan Foreign Office Women's Association charity bazaar.

Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan is located across the river Ravi, about four kilometres from the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Punjab's Gurdaspur district. It was established by the Sikh Guru in 1522. The first Gurdwara, Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib, was built here, where Guru Nanak Dev is said to have died. The corridor, once built, will give Indian pilgrims easy access to the shrine and boost the tourism in the region.
