New Delhi: Since the Indo-Pak Partition in 1947, many tales of tragedy, love, separation and unity have come to the fore and one such heartwarming story is of two brothers. In a touching incident, the brothers, who were separated during the India-Pakistan Partition in 1947 were reunited after 74 years in Kartarpur. A video capturing the visibly emotional reunion of the siblings on Tuesday has gone viral on social media, leaving people teary-eyed.

Siddique, a resident of Faisalabad, met with elder brother Habib who arrived at Kartarpur from the Phullanwal area of Punjab in India via the Kartarpur Corridor that connects Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan to the border with India.

The older of the two brothers, Saddiq Khan, was eight or nine years old during Partition, and currently lives in Bogran village (near Faisalabad) in Pakistan. Sheeka Khan was only a toddler at the time of the brothers’ separation and now resides in village Phulewala in Bathinda, Punjab. It was only after the reunion that Sheeka Khan learned that his given name was actually Habib Khan.

Meanwhile, social media was abuzz with comments of users who viewed the touching video of the reunion. The brothers could not control their emotions and burst into tears of joy after meeting embracing each other and recalling memories.

Reports quoted the brothers thanking the governments of the two countries for opening the Kartarpur Corridor facilitating a visa-free travel from India to Pakistan up to Kartapur. During the meeting, Habib lauded the initiative of Kartarpur, saying that the corridor helped him to reconnect with his brother.

In a major decision, Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Indian government decided to re-open in November 2019, the 4.7-kilometre-long Kartarpur Corridor that was closed in wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
