Mumbai: A day before the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor, a fresh controversy has emerged because of an exhibit put at the gurudwara site by Pakistani authorities, reported Hindustan Times.

According to several Indians who were part of a private group that recently visited Durbar Sahib Gurudwara in Pakistan’s Kartarpur, Pakistani authorities created an exhibit featuring a small bomb that was purportedly dropped on the shrine by the Indian Air Force during the 1971 war. The bomb has been placed within a glass case placed atop on a small pillar decorated with the ‘khanda’, a symbol representing the Sikh faith. A board erected next to the pillar has a description that reads: “Miracle of Waheguruji.”

The board further states: “Indian Air Force dropped this Bomb during 1971 at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Sri Kartarpur Sahib with the aim to destroy it. However, this evil design could not be materialised due to blessing of Waheguru Ji (Almighty Allah). The said bomb landed into Sri Khoo Sahib (Sacred Well) and this Darbar Sahib remained unheart (sic). It is pertinent to mention that this is the same sacred well from where Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji used to get water to irrigate his fields.”

There was no immediate response from Indian officials on the issue.

Earlier this week, another controversy hit the celebrations when a song released by Pakistan to mark the opening of the corridor featured posters of Khalistani separatist leaders.
