On his way to the holy site, Magan expressed how excited he was to visit the place. The singer also shed light on the progressive thinking of Guru Nanak and termed him as a ‘trailblazer’. Magan shared how Baba Guru Nanak talked about equality and was against the caste system which was dominant in South Asia at the time.
Magan is then taken to the shrine by a member of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabantak Committee named Inder Jeet Singh. He was impressed to witness the inter cultural harmony at the Sikh religious site.
”Whats amazing about this area is that all Indians and Pakistanis can get together here, irrespective their faith.I wish everyone could experience this feeling inside me right now,” he said in the vlog.
“Lets forget the headlines sometimes. Lets forget what they are trying to tell us and remember what’s in here, which is love” Magan said referring to the harmony he observed between Pakistanis and Indians at the sacred site.
