In a bid to promote religious tourism 200-member International Hindu delegation to arrive in Pakistan
Patron-in-Chief for the Pakistan Hindu Council Dr Ramesh Kumar, on December 31, revealed that an Indian delegation comprising of 200 Hindu pilgrims would be visiting Pakistan for four days. Dr Ramesh Kumar added, “The primary purpose of Hindu pilgrims, led by Shriman Mahatma Param Nityanand Ji, arriving here is to visit the Samadhi of Shri Param Hans Ji Maharaj Temple.”
The four days visit will start from January 1 to 4 as the PTI MNA Dr Ramesh Kumar announced that this would boost religious tourism between the neighbouring countries. At the same time, Dr Ramesh Kumar revealed that Pakistan Hindu Council has reached an agreement with PIA ensuring that the Hindu pilgrims will be facilitated for their pilgrimage to holy places in Pakistan.
It is pertinent to mention that Express Tribune’s report revealed that previously, Indian pilgrims were not allowed to travel in PIA. The four-day visit to Pakistan will compromise the Hindu pilgrims visiting Katas Raj Temple, Shahi Qila, Raja Ranjit Singh’s Samadhi, Gurdwara Panja Sahib Hassan Abdal and other historical sites. Whereas, Dr Ramesh Kumar announced, “A series of flights will start from both the countries every month to facilitate religious pilgrims.”
