The administration of Karatarpur Sahib arranged for the cousins to see each other again and provided them with sweets and langar, according to a member of the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) who spoke to PTI.
Surinder Kaur is from Jalandhar, while Mohammad Ismaeel is from the Sahiwal area of Punjab, which is around 200 kilometers from Lahore.
Mohammad Ismaeel and Surinder Kaur’s families were neighbors in the town of Shahkot in the Jalandhar area until the riots drove them apart.
Specifics of their eventual reconnection
After Mohammad Ismaeel’s story was posted on a Pakistani Punjabi YouTube channel, an Australian man named Sardar Mission Singh contacted him to give him news about his missing relatives in India. Surinder Kaur’s phone number was provided by Singh to Mohammad Ismaeel, and the two cousins chatted and arranged to meet at Gurdwara Darbar Sahib through the Kartarpur Corridor.
The reconnection brought on emotional scenes. Similarly, Surinder Kaur and his Indian family members observed religious observances.
