A news report by the Indian Express has gone viral on social media where Hindus and Muslims have shown the ultimate example of communal harmony.

At village Janoji in Pakistan’s Sindh district, Hindus and Muslims jointly reopened a Sikh Gurdwara Sahib.

The Gurdwara Sahib has been closed since partition and reopened after 72 years in honor of Guru Nanak’s 550th Gurpurab celebrations.

Speaking to The Indian Express, Dewa Sikandar, member, Pakistan Hindu Council, said the gurdwara, lying abandoned at the village Janoji in Salehpat of Sindh province’s Sukkur district, was reopened Friday as part of celebrations marking the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak.

“Gurdwara Baba Nanak has been reopened after a year of renovation work, which was carried out with the help of donations from Nanak Naam Lewa Sangat. The Hindu community living in Sukkur and Khairpur districts contributed and nearly Rs 6 lakh was spent to renovate the two-room gurdwara,” said Sikandar.
