“I absolutely love this pic, so much power in this one pic! A Pakistani female police commando stands guard as Indian Sikh pilgrims arrive at Wagah railway station near Lahore, Pakistan, on Friday. Hundreds of Indian Sikh pilgrims arrived in Pakistan by a special train to participate in the three-day festival to celebrate the 547st birth anniversary of their spiritual leader Baba Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikh religion, at Nankana Sahib near Lahore.” Smitha Deepak wrote in his FB post.

Nankana Sahib was earlier known as ‘Rai-Bhoi-Di-Talwandi’ is named after the first Guru of the Sikhs Guru Nanak Dev. Located about 80 kilometers south-west of Lahore. Because Nankana Sahib is the birthplace of Guru Nanak Dev, the central figure in Sikhism, it is a city of high historic and religious value and is a popular pilgrimage site for Sikhs from all over the world.

Though there are political differences and religious influences, but for a nation it is always on priority to provide security for anyone visiting it. It is amazing site and much to it is the security provided by a female armed person. This breaks so many stereotypes about Pakistan, religion and women on many levels. You can infer many things from this picture, but respect is the common emotion you feel to see this.

If the countries were connected the way people are with each other, there would be much peace in the world. And we pray for that peace.
