Pakistan has issued visas to 509 Indian Sikh pilgrims. All these Sikh pilgrims will go to Pakistan to attend Maharaja Ranjit Singh's death anniversary. The Pakistan High Commission has informed that the death anniversary will be between 21 and 30 June. Maharaja Ranjit Singh was the first king of the Sikh Empire in the 19th century. He is known as Sher-e-Punjab.

Visas for pilgrimage sites are given under the Pakistan-India Protocol 1974. Every year, a large number of Indian pilgrims travel to various religious sites in Pakistan. On the other side, Pakistan's Ambassador-at-Large, Saad Ahmed Waraich, greeted the pilgrims and underlined his commitment to provide every conceivable convenience.

Earlier this month, Pakistan granted visas to 962 Indian Sikh pilgrims to observe the Martyrdom Day of Guru Shri Arjan Dev Ji. In April, Pakistan awarded visas to 2,843 Sikh pilgrims from India. They had all gone to Pakistan to partake in the Baisakhi holiday, which would be observed from April 13 to 22.
