LAHORE - Ignoring the warning issued by Indian government to avoid visit to Pakistan, 1,500 Sikh Yatrees arrived in City through Wagah border on Saturday by special trains. Security situation cannot prevent us to perform our religious rites, said a Sikh Yatree and added that they were thankful to Pakistan government for security arrangements.
