Hundreds of Indian Sikhs are set to make a historic pilgrimage to Pakistan on Saturday, travelling visa-free to one of their religion's holiest sites under a landmark deal between the two countries separated by the 1947 partition of the subcontinent. The shrine to Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, lies in Kartarpur, a small town beside the River Ravi in central Punjab province where he is believed to have died. For up to 30 million Sikhs around the world, it is one of their holiest places.
