NEW DELHI: Prior to the opening of the Kartarpur corridor later this week, a video song released by the Pakistan government has stoked controversy for featuring Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu and slain Khalistani separatist Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale amongst other leaders.
The video song was released by Pakistan’s Ministry of Information & Broadcasting on November 4.
The video also shows posters featuring photographs of Khalistani separatist leaders Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, Maj Gen Shabeg Singh and Amrik Singh Khalsa against the backdrop of Sikh pilgrims.
However, after strong protests by many quarters, Pakistan has released a different version of the video on Twitter.
In the Twitter version, the Pakistan government omitted the last few seconds of the video where posters of the Khalistani leaders featured in the background.
The video on Twitter featured posters of slain Khalistani separatist leaders Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, Amrik Singh Khalsa and Major General (Dismissed) Shabeg Singh. All these Khalistani separatist leaders were killed during Operation Blue Star in June 1984.
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said earlier that Pakistan cannot be trusted as its love for the Sikh community was sudden and also because the community was waiting for the opening of the corridor for the last 70 years.
“We cannot trust Pakistan and we should keep our eyes open as the corridor can be misused by the ISI. Controversial referendum 2020 campaign is already on in Pakistan,” said Captain Amarinder Singh.
The corridor will connect the Dera Baba Nanak shrine in India’s Punjab with Darbar Sahib at Kartarpur, just about four km from the international border, located at Narowal district of Pakistan’s Punjab province.
After the inauguration of much-awaited Kartarpur corridor on November 9, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a public gathering at the Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur.

‘Dr Bomb’ Was Developing Low-Cost Bomb Using Ultra-Modern Technique: UP STF
Ansari, suspected of involvement in more than 52 blast cases across India, went “missing” on Thursday.
LUCKNOW (Uttar Pradesh): The convict of Mumbai Blast Case Jaleesh Ansari who was arrested on Friday by a special task force of Uttar Pradesh police has made some startling revelations during interrogation.
He told police that he was planning to develop new technology of low-cost bomb-making.
STF SP Vishal Vikram Singh told media persons that Ansari has admitted his involvement in at least 15 cases of bomb blasts all over the country in which many innocent people lost their lives. These blasts occurred from 1989 to 1993.
Ansari revealed that he was developing an ultra-modern technique of bomb-making which needs simple chemicals and day to day use items.
The plan was to develop a low-cost bomb that can be made easily from the things available in the market and which will do maximum damage also.
A convict in the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts case, Jalees Ansari, who went “missing” while on parole, was arrested on Friday from Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh, an official said.
Ansari (68), a Mumbai resident who was serving a life term in a Rajasthan jail, was nabbed in a joint operation of Maharashtra’s Anti-Terrorism Squad and the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force (STF).
Ansari, known as Dr Bomb for his suspected involvement in more than 52 blast cases across the country, went “missing” on early Thursday morning.
He was on 21-day parole and was expected to return to Ajmer Central Jail by Friday evening after the end of the parole period.
While on parole, he was ordered to visit the Agripada police station every day between 10.30 am and 12 pm to mark attendance, he said.
However, Ansari did not visit the police station on Thursday during the designated time, the official said.
The Crime Branch of the Mumbai Police, the Maharashtra ATS and other agencies launched a massive manhunt for the terror convict, he said.
Jalees was allegedly connected with terror outfits like SIMI and Indian Mujahideen and taught their members how to make bombs, which earned him the sobriquet Dr Bomb, he said.
He was also questioned by the NIA in 2011 in connection with the 2008 bomb blast in Mumbai, he said.
