Five official delegates and a total of 43 Sikh members from the New Zealand Sikh community travelled to the Kartarpur Corridor in Pakistan on the occasion of Guru Nanak’s 550th birth anniversary.

“The delegates told us that the arrangement made for them was exemplary and people there are very generous, respectful and helpful towards the guests/delegates,” Daljit Singh, from Supreme Sikh Society said.

“The message the holy shrine in Kartarpur has been resounding of unity, peace and brotherhood.

“The message conveyed through the event is ‘we all are same, and there is just one supreme power, one god, and we should so stay united’,” Mr Singh said.

The delegates are scheduled to return on Saturday, November 16 and have praised about the rich experience being there on this holy occasion.
