NEW DELHI (Bernama) -- India's Sikh community is elated over the launch of a pilgrim route that connects two important sacred sites, one in India and another about four kilometres away in Pakistan.

Once India and Pakistan complete the infrastructure on their respective territories, the new border crossing point is expected to see a rush of Sikh pilgrims to the Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan's Narowal district.

Indian Sikhs have welcomed the visa-free route, which the Indian and Pakistani governments agreed to facilitate despite their strained relations.
