The Sikh bikers in a five-nation cancer charity ride has safely returned after clocking some 16,800km.
The five of the riders had travelled all through: Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, India and Pakistan.
“We got wonderful response everywhere, including in Pakistan,” Rajvin Singh told Asia Samachar.
They made it to Pakistan before the height of the celebration now going on for the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak.
The highlight is today’s launch of the Kartarpur Corridor on the Indian and Pakistani sides of Punjab, by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan PM Imran Khan, respectively. This corridor is a historic pathway between two key gurdwaras in the life of Guru Nanak, today divided by an international border drawn upon India’s independence in 1947.
The bikers, led by the Santana Bikerz Mc, were flagged off by Malaysia’s Minister of Communications and Multimedia Gobind Singh Deo on Sept 25. They are raising funds for National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM).
