ISLAMABAD - Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Sunday expressed that Kartarpur corridor was a perfect example of inter-faith harmony as its completion would further promote peaceful co-existence of people from various beliefs and civilizations.

Dr Firdous, in a tweet, said the devotees belonging to the Sikh community from India and other parts of the world could perform their religious rituals freely in Pakistan after completion of this project.

She said since Kartarpur corridor was a sacred place for the Sikh community, the government was committed to ensuring timely completion of the corridor for facilitating them in Pakistan, besides promoting inter-faith harmony.

“We have great respect for religious sentiments of Sikh community,” the special assistant remarked.

Amid growing tendency of extremism and intolerance in the world, she said the Kartarpur project was resonating the message of tolerance, humanity and respect of difference of opinions.

“The white colour in the Pakistani flag, representing minorities, is as dear to us as the green one,” Dr Firdous said while highlighting Prime Minister Imran Khan’s resolve for protection of minorities’ rights in Pakistan as well as the world.
