Recently, Pakistan’s Prime Minister visited UAE where he represented the face of developing Pakistan and supported his arguments by claiming that the country has Mecca and Medina of Sikhs located on its land, and it will soon be opened for the devotees. He further claimed that his country completely supports and respects the minority communities and is taking steps for the welfare of their religious sites.

According to me, he is talking about the Kartarpur Gurudwara, situated in Pakistan, for which the Pakistan government has granted the visa-free entry to the devotees.

Imran Khan also said there are many cities of old Sindhu civilization present in Pakistan, which can be visited by tourists from all over the world now.

The Pakistani Prime Minister visited UAE to attend a summit on the invitation of UAE Vice-President and Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum. He went on talking about the changing Pakistan at length, and even mentioned the ancient cities of Multan and Lahore.

Let me focus on the fact that Mecca and Medina are the most sacred places of Muslims, and Imran Khan tried to link these places with the sacred place of worship of Sikhs.
