LAHORE - Around 115 Hindu pilgrims, who did not leave for India the previous day, crossed the Wahgah Border on Saturday stressing they will return to Pakistan.
The pilgrims leaving today, also denied migration rumors and stated that they were just propaganda. They reaffirmed that they would return to their homes after completing their one-month pilgrimage.
Earlier, immigration authorities had stopped pilgrims from crossing the border in the wake of a rumor that they were migrating to India due to fears for their life and property in Pakistan.
Immigration authorities initially informed the pilgrims that the interior ministry’s decision would be given in the next 48 hours. However, after a four-hour long peaceful protest, the Hindu pilgrims were allowed to cross borders.
