So yesterday I was at the Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, #Pakistan via the Kartarpur Corridor. This photo thread is about my journey to Kartarpur.

I've got a lot of queries already & I'm working on detailed blog posts.

The nearest town to reach Kartarpur Corridor from #India is Dera Baba Nanak which is 2km from the border. Reached here by bus after a 1:30 hrs journey.

Since it was just 2km, I walked from Dera Baba Nanak to the Border terminal. On the way a couple of BSF check posts. Got the first glimpse of Pakistan flag and this is the terminal building.

کرتار پور کےمتعلق کچھ باتیں

کرتارپور گردوارا مذہبی لحاظ سے وہی حیثیت رکھتا ہے جو ہم مسلمانوں کےنزدیک مکہ و مدینہ کی ہے۔
کرتارپورکی تعمیر پٹیالہ کےمہاراجہ بھوپندر سنگھ بہادر کے دورحکومت1921 تا 1929 کےدرمیان ہوئی
گردوارا سکھ مذہب کے بانی گورو نانک دیوجی مہاراج کی یاد میں بنایا گیا
سکھ مذہب کے روحانی پیشوا گورو نانک کی پیدائش 1499 عیسوی کو ننکانہ صاحب میں ہوئی۔
اور ان کے والد کا نام ”مہتا کلیان داس“ اور ماں کا نام ”ماتا ترپتا“ تھا۔

گورو نانک 1521 کو اس گاؤں میں تشریف لائے ’کرتار پور کے نام سے گاؤں کو آباد کیا،
1539ء تک آپ نے یہاں قیام کیا
اور قیام کے دوران
کھیتی باڑی بھی کرتے رہے۔

روایات کے مطابق بابا گورونانک کو سکھ مذہب کے لوگ اپنا گرو اور مسلمان اپنا روحانی بزرگ (پیر) مانتے تھے،
کوئی دو رائے نہیں جن کی زندگی انسانیت کیلئے مشعل راہ ہے۔

کرتارپور کی بات کریں تو وہاں 5 چھوٹے چھوٹے گردوارے موجود ہیں۔
جن کے نام ”پال لیلا صاحب“ جو

1.Hindutva politicians incite mobs to destroy a place of worship belonging to a minority community
2. Hindutva politicians win elections on the back of spreading hate towards same minority
3. Senior Judges rubber stamp the original actions of the Hindutva Mobs

The worlds largest democracy has today exposed the dangerous faultlines with the whole concept of democracy. Thus, when dangerous demagogues exploit fear & prejudices of the majority voters, the lives and freedoms of minority communities are easily sacrificed
As we have witnessed with Trump's America, Brexit Britain, France, Italy, Austria etc etc, once a mob is incited, the supposedly decent elements of the majority communities become powerless.

Ok, so this 15 tweet thread was a replug of my long held point of view on the terror apparatus in the Valley.
Now let me share some thoughts on today's #PulwamaAttack.
Still disjointed, but let's see how it goes
Firstly, what happened and how it happened is by now well known. So I won't talk about it.
In addition, it continues to be my belief that it is Pakis that are behind it. Thoughts on that are embedded in the first tweet of this thread.
Let me concentrate instead on some thoughts that have been wracking my head for the past few hours.
Firstly, and strictly a personal opinion, this is partly a manifestation of the planned US withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Folks, sharing some thoughts on the #KartarpurCorridor in the next few tweets.
Let's see how it goes ..
Firstly, about Gurudwara Dera Saheb Kartarpur. It was here that Guru Nanak spent a chunk of his last years at that location. Hence the emotional attachment of Sikhs to that place.
Secondly, about its physical location. The Gurudwara is located just above 2km from the nearest point on the Indian Border, across the Ravi River.
Thus, a corridor for controlled access to the Gurudwara is eminently feasible.
Here is a Google Maps screenshot.

PM @narendramodi commences the 50th edition of #MannKiBaat reminding listeners that this Golden Jubilee episode is indeed gilt-edged in every sense of the term.
PM @narendramodi revealed why he chose radio as a medium for #MannKiBaat reminiscing how during his travels in Himachal Pradesh in 1998 a lone tea-seller in a remote snow-clad hilly outpost informed him of India’s Nuclear tests after listening to the news on radio.(1/3)
“He must be listening to the radio all day; this was a medium that was truly connected with the masses…and it was a powerful means of getting across,” the PM thought.(2/3) #MannKiBaat
