Earlier this year, we reported about a special reunion of two brothers who separated due to the India-Pakistan partition in 1947 and met after 74 years at the Kartarpur corridor. Well, another similar heartwarming story has come to light.
Taking to Twitter, a Chandigarh-based journalist Man Aman Singh Chhina, tweeted about an emotional reunion of siblings after decades of wait.
Of the two siblings, the brother is now a Sikh living in India and the sister is a Muslim residing in Pakistan. The siblings who separated during the partition finally united through the Kartarpur corridor. Man Aman Singh Chhina tweeted:
“One of the biggest advantages of Kartarpur Corridor has been that long separated siblings from 1947 have been able to meet each other. Just watched a video of a Indian brother and his Pakistani sister meeting in Kartarpur. Makes the eyes well up.”

People online were moved by their fortunate reunion.
I hope for them to meet more often and as often as they wish. Lahore is just one hour drive from Amritsar https://t.co/gkZGWi3s7y

Such meetings apart from bringing tears to our eyes also unfold the magnitude of human tragedy the most hurried Partition was responsible for. https://t.co/2n6Nypbeu9

Kartarpur goes beyond separated relatives, just watch Vlogs made by average Indian. Heart touching feelings and views during and post visit. We need more people to people contact.

The partition of India and Pakistan was the most tragic event in history due to which a lot of families got separated. Thankfully, the Kartarpur Corridor was opened in 2019 allowing visa-free travel from India to Pakistan up to Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur.
