Even after high tension between India and Pakistan, ‘Samjhouta Express’ a train connecting India and Pakistan is still running as per its schedule.
Amid tensions between the Indo-Pak border, Pakistan has violated ceasefire several times. But despite the fact, the train connecting two nations is still functioning as per its schedule, which has shown how big-hearted India is.
‘Samjouta Express’ is commonly called the Friend Express, is a twice-weekly train – Tuesdays and Fridays – that runs between Delhi and Attari in India and Lahore in Pakistan.
The train was started on 22 July 1976 following the Shimla Agreement and ran between Amritsar and Lahore, a distance of about 42 km.
