India and Pakistan Opened up a “Peace Corridor.” That’s Pissing Some People Off

As Sikhs around the world celebrate a holiday that’s like their Christmas; the 550th birthday of Guru Nanak, their religion’s founder, they’re also celebrating something surprising — a rare moment of cooperation between India and Pakistan.

Earlier this year, the two nuclear rivals came to the brink of war, launching air raids into each other’s territories, and later suspended ties after India revoked the autonomy of Kashmir, a territory both countries claim. But over the weekend, they briefly set aside their differences to open a corridor where Indian Sikhs can for the first time travel without a visa to Kartarpur Sahib, a temple in Pakistan marking the lands where Guru Nanak lived out his last days as a farmer.

The annual celebration has been given extra significance this year with the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor, a secure, visa-free passage between arch-rivals India and Pakistan that gives Indian Sikhs access to the place where the guru died in 1539, now one of the religion’s holiest sites.
