    WSO Urges the Preservation of Guru Nanak's Fields in Kartarpur Sahib

    Ottawa (May 21, 2019) WSO requests that the Pakistan Government preserve the 104 acres of fields surrounding Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara where Guru Nanak lived and farmed for 19 years.  Since the announcement of the Kartarpur Corridor in November 2018, there has been substantial construction resulting in the stripping of land around the Kartarpur Gurdwara in the name of religious tourism.

Plans also include commercial buildings such as hotels and parking lots on the land where Guru Nanak’s fields existed.
