Captured at Wagah railway station last week, this startling picture reflects many things but ‘respect’ is the common emotion one can feel out of it.
The picture is serving two big purposes. On one hand, it is dissolving the religious differences between the two countries while on the other it is burying the stereotypes about Pakistan related to women.
Hundreds of Indian Sikh pilgrims arrived in Pakistan by a special train to participate in the three-day festival to celebrate the 547st birth anniversary of their spiritual leader Baba Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikh religion, at Nankana Sahib near Lahore.
Nankana Sahib is a city and capital of Nankana Sahib District in the Punjab province of Pakistan.
It is the birth place of Guru Nanak Dev. The city holds high religious importance and is a famous pilgrimage for Sikhs all over the world.
Today, as the Sikhs celebrate his 547th birth anniversary, this amazing picture of a Pakistani woman protecting Indian Sikh pilgrims is a living example of Guru Nanak’s preaching of ‘equality for all’, irrespective of their religion, caste or gender.
Also, it is a happy sight for the peace lovers.
