Over 3,000 Sikh pilgrims from India have arrived in Lahore in Pakistan to take part in festivities ahead of the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak. On their arrival in Lahore, the Sikh pilgrims left for Gurudwara Janamesthan in Nankana Sahib, the birthplace of Guru Nanak, where the main function will be held on November 23 on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti. Minorities Senator Anwar Lal, Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) chairman Tahir Ehsan and secretary Tariq Wazir, and Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee president Tara Singh were among the Pakistani officials who greeted the Sikh ‘yatris’ at the Wagah Railway station. “As many as 3,080 Sikh pilgrims arrived in Lahore  on two special trains. The third train is expected to arrive here to bring another 700 or so yatris,” ETPB spokesman Amir Hashmi shared with media.
