India questions Pakistan over collapse of domes of Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib
New Delhi : India has questioned Pakistan over the collapse of domes of Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan.
In its message, India has conveyed to Pakistan that the damage to the structures in the gurudwara has caused "great consternation" among the Sikh community, they said.
"India has urged Pakistan that in deference to the sentiments of the Sikh community, the deficiencies which led to the damage to the newly constructed structures be urgently rectified and remedied," said a source.
The strong sense of faith and devotion for the holy site must be understood and appreciated, they added.
In November last year, the two countries threw open a corridor linking Dera Baba Sahib in Gurdaspur in India and Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan, in a historic people-to-people initiative.
Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara is located in Pakistan's Narowal district across the river Ravi, about four kilometres from the Dera Baba Nanak shrine. It is the final resting place of Sikh faith's founder Guru Nanak Dev.
