Dera Baba Nanak Corridor- We are Thrilled-Jalandhar Thinkers

Before Partition , Dera Baba Nanak was a very important , Highway / Railway  line ( with its Railway Cum Road bridge over River Ravi ) linking Delhi /Amritsar / Jullundur routes with another strategic town - Sialkot.

From Sialkot the Highway split- to Jammu and via Muzzafarabad ( Jhelum Road to Srinagar . The main highway connecting Jammu and Srinagar ran through Sialkot and Muzzafarabad .

From Sialkot , a narrow gauge train ran ( Via Ranbir Singh Pura ) to Jammu.

Old Jammu station ( in derelict condition ) stills exists on the Right Bank of River Tawi.

When , broad gauge railway line was built by India to Jammu , the new Railway station ( on the Left of the River Tawi ) was named JAMMU TAWI.


All his life Baba Nanak’s teachings were simple…one of the most significant message he gave was that ’there is no Hindu, there is no Muslim’……all were equal in the eyes of God……Yet, the heart breaking truth of the real world is that the ‘Janam bhoomi’ and the ‘Karam bhoomi’ of Baba Nanak stands divided and estranged by man made borders carved out rather brutally.
We are thrilled at the joint efforts of India and Pakistan for opening up the access to Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib.
Leaving behind their sacred shrines in Pakistan has been very painful for Indian Sikhs.
In their " Ardaas " Sikhs pay their obeisance to those Gurudwaras in Pakistan " JEHRE SAANU VICHHODA DE GAYE ".
This VICHHODA was man made and can , hence , also be rectified by Man.


Restore Broken Rail Links With Pakistan ( Like With Bangladesh )

Like with Bangladesh , India should settle , amicably , all pending issues with Pakistan so that foreign Powers like USA , China etc do not play one country against the other.
Revive broken Rail links.
To begin with restore the Empress Bridge over Sutlej at Ferozepur and restart Ferozepur - Kasur - Lahore Railway Line. Next Dera Baba Nanak rail link
