‘How beautiful!’: Indian Sikh & Pakistani driver hailed online for heartwarming moment of unity (VIDEO)

Thousands of Sikh pilgrims visited Gurdwara Dabar Sahib in Pakistan’s Punjab province at the weekend after the historic opening of the new Kartarpur corridor. The site is believed to be the final resting place of the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak, who died in the 16th century.

“I don’t think you are as happy as me. The way my eyes have welled up with tears. I am very happy,” Pakistani bus Sadam Hassan tells Ravinder Singh Robin, a reporter from India.

“Seeing you all, I have that feeling that one has when one go for Hajj. This is the same experience for you,” he said. 

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi saw off the first group of some 500 pilgrims on Saturday, as they made their way to the holy site. 

Opening of the Kartarpur corridor has been a long-standing demand of Indian Sikhs for decades, and the move potentially marks a sign of a slight warming of relations between India and Pakistan.

“Punjab has been united once again. May God always keep you happy. May you always come here. We [Pakistan] will always welcome you with open arms,” a smiling Hassan concluded. 

Reaction online has been seemingly universally positive, with people appreciating the brotherhood and unity shown by the two men, even as their respective governments have locked horns for decades.
