A group of Pakistani cyclists have announced their support for the Milne Do (Let’s Meet) peace group that set off on January 1, 2017 from India Gate, New Delhi calling for peace between India and Pakistan. The Pakistani group plans to arrive at the border of Pakistan at Wagah-Attari checkpoint this Sunday, January 8 to coincide with the Indian group’s arrival on the other side that day.
The Pakistani cyclists under the banner of Critical Mass Lahore plan to ride up to the border to spread the message of peace between the two countries.
The youngest Indian cyclist is 10 years old, and the oldest is 77. Some workers’ unions are also planning to join the rally along with the music group Laal.
The Indian and Pakistani groups will not be able to physically meet due to visa restrictions. However, the organisers hope that their presence on either side will be a symbolic gesture in support of Indo-Pak friendship, peace and dialogue.
