The story behind the viral video of the reunion of two brothers separated during partition 74 years ago
'Don't cry, we're finally together after all these years!'
The Kartarpur Corridor has reunited two brothers who separated 74 years ago amid a chaotic partition.
Brothers Muhammad Siddique, 80, and Habib, 78, separated 74 years ago during partition. They hugged each other while crying and garlanding on the happy occasion of reunion.
On this emotional and overwhelming occasion, the Kartarpur administration distributed sweets.
Siddique, a resident of Phugaran village on the outskirts of Faisalabad district, said he had reached out to a Sikh social worker from Canada two years ago. He said the social worker had helped him to reunite with his brother.
The 80-year-old said his brother and sister had gone to his grandparents’ house with his mother in 1947.
“A civil war was raging on, and my father and other family members decided to migrate immediately to save their lives, and we came to Pakistan,” Siddique said.
Habib from Indian Punjab said it was the happiest day of his life.
The corridor plays a vital role in reuniting friends and families who separated during partition.
The two brothers visited Gurdwara Darbar Sahib and were given gifts by the officials.
