Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan says incumbent government is working on different proposals to promote Sikh tourism in the country in lines with the vision of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Talking to a delegation of Sikhs of America in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said the government will issue long-term multiple entry visas to the Sikh pilgrims coming to Pakistan.

The Minister also expressed grave concern over rising incidents of religious extremism and oppression of minorities by BJP-led government in India.

During the meeting, President of Sikhs of America Jasdeep Singh lauded Pakistani government for providing E-Visa facility to the Sikh pilgrims and termed Kartarpur corridor as a great gift for the Sikh community.

He said Sikh pilgrims coming to Kartarpur are facing difficulties due to strict policies of Indian government.

The meeting also discussed various issues related to inter-religious harmony, extension of Darbar Baba Gurunanak and Kartarpur corridor.

Meanwhile, talking to a news channel, Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah said that PTI chief Imran Khan is on protective bail in almost 19 cases registered in Islamabad and 16 in Punjab province.

He said that Imran Khan’s long march story has miserably failed because the citizen of Islamabad refused to support him for sit-ins and marches. The minister said the Imran Khan’s narrative of foreign conspiracy is false and rejected by the state institutions.

Answering a question, he said that the government has reviewed the case against Moonis Elahi which was registered in PTI government.
