Please rewrite this text using simpler words:

Gurdaspur, a place, on August 20.
Several Sikh groups gathered near the Kartarpur corridor today to hold a prayer meeting on the zero line. They asked the government to remove the requirement of having a passport to travel to Pakistan using the Kartarpur corridor.
Damdama Sahib Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh, SGPC secretary Gurcharan Singh Grewal, and former Nakodar MLA Gurpartap Singh Wadala were present at the meeting.
The Alliance of Sikh organizations, the United Sikh Students Federation, and the Aalmi Punjabi Sangat participated in the meeting.
Gangveer Singh Rathour, who speaks for the Aalmi Punjabi Sangat, said that during the meeting it was decided to ask the Union Government to make sure that people going on religious trips to Pakistan don’t have to have passports. Instead, the government should give special permission cards to devotees who want to travel to Pakistan through the corridor. Most people who live in the countryside don’t have passports and are not allowed to go on trips. He said that if the passport requirement is removed, more people will be able to visit Darbar Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan.
He said that security agencies need to stop drugs from being brought across the border.
Many dishonest people are illegally bringing drugs into Pakistan, and they are using drones and other methods to do it. One way they use is pushing heroin through wire-mesh fences. Both the governments of Pakistan and India should try their best to stop drug smuggling, he said.
He said that Indian and Pakistani Punjabs should be allowed to have free trade.
