For the unversed, Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan is the final resting place of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev. The Kartarpur corridor connects Gurudwara Darbar Sahib to Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Punjab's Gurdaspur district. India and Pakistan’s PMs Narendra Modi and Imran Khan opened the route on Pakistan’s side ahead of 550th birth anniversary of the Sikh faith founder Guru Nanak Dev.
Talking about his experience, Sunny Deol told media, “The people (in Pakistan) show a lot of love. This is a great initiative and I hope things will continue like this.” He concluded saying, “What’s the point of fighting, there should be love only.”
