No, no, no. Wagah ceremony need to be stopped permanently.
No the circus is actually a big tourist draw and useful for our GDP, as well as a compare-and-contrast with the monochrome world on the other side, the depression there accentuated by the setting rays of the sun which envelopes them in a shadow while giving us the last few rays before the day is done.

Anybody that visits Golden Temple, Durgiana Mandir, Ram Tirath mandir (where Luv-Kush were born) and various museums (Jalianwala Bagh, partition museum, Virasar-e-Jang-e-azadir for example) the nationalistic fervor gets arises and they tend to visit Wagah Border.
Punjab tourism has been developed (by Bagal's off course) along this way
1. Religious tourism (Guru Gobind Singh, Sahibzade, Banda Bahadur, etc)
2. Independence of India museums along the main GT road.
3. Food tourism (Various dhabas and "Haveli's" all along the GT road)., there is even a Pakistani food restaurant at Wagah (off course operated by Indians but they have menu where they claim is "Lahore type food" (There is no difference between Lahore or Amritsar food except for beef).
Golden Temple is among the top 5 tourist attractions in Indiahttps://www.planetware.com/tourist-attr ... ia-ind.htm
On an average weekend in Amritsar people see more non-Sikh tourists from outside (all over India) than Punjabis. Tourism is huge in/around Amritsar. Pakistan off course is trying to copy India but infrastructure on their side is peanuts compare to us. They don't get that many international tourists.
Amritsar has Hyatt, Holiday Inn, Marriott, Radisson (3 hotels) and many 3-4 star hotels.
