Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: Since the opening of the Kartarpur corridor between India and Pakistan, there has been a renewed demand for a corridor to the Sharada Peeth in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). Kashmiri Pandits have demanded that the government initiate the construction of a corridor to go to Sharda Peeth, one of the most important pilgrim centres for the community.

Sirf News has just received the information that the Pakistan government has given a go-ahead to the Sharada Peeth corridor.

Sharada Peeth Devi is an ancient temple of Saraswati located in PoK on the banks of River Kishanganga (aka Nilam) near Sharada. Its ruins are located near the India-Pakistan Line of Control.

Speaking to the Indian media, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had said last year that his government could consider propositions like Sharada Peeth, Katasraj Mandir in Kashmir and some other Hindu temples in Pakistan.

Whereas Sharada Peeth is situated on the banks of the Nilam dam and is an important temple for the Kashmiri Pandits, the Katasraj Mandir is an ancient temple located in Punjab. and some other temples are present around it.

Elections were held in Pakistan on 29 July 2018, and Imran Khan’s party Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf had emerged as the largest party in these elections — thanks to the covert support of the Army of that country, it is largely believed.

Assuming the office, Khan, who had been active in Pakistan’s politics for 22 years, had promised a “new Pakistan” that would be known for its tolerance for the minorities in that country.

While the execution of that promise leaves a lot to be desired — with the recent incidents of abduction and forced conversion of minor Hindu girls being the latest instance of dishonouring of Imran Khan’s pledge — former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti had said pounced on the opportunity by urging that Prime Minister Narendra Modi consider Khan’s offer.
