Islamabad: A fresh controversy has emerged a day before the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor because of an exhibit put at the gurudwara by the Pakistani authorities.
This new controversy has come into view just after the announcement by the army spokesman who said that the Indian pilgrims will be requiring passports. However, the Pakistani Prime Minister, Imran Khan waived the condition of passport for one year for the Indian Sikhs using the corridor.

The exhibit is of a small bomb that was dropped on the shrine by the Indian Air Force during the 1971 war. The bomb is placed within a glass case placed on top of a small pillar which is decorated with the ‘khanda’, a symbol representing Sikh faith. A board standing next to the pillar had “Miracle of Waheguruji” written on it. The board also states that the Indian Air Force dropped this Bomb during 1971 at Gurudwara Darbar Sahib Sri Kartarpur Sahib to destroy it.
The Indian officials have not yet responded on the issue.
