While addressing the Gurpurab celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, he also hailed Sikh leaders and highlighted Guru Tegh Bahadur‘s valour against Aurangzeb. “Guru Tegh Bahadur’s valor against Aurangzeb teaches us how the country fights against terror and religious fanaticism. Similarly, the life of the tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Sahib is also a living example of tenacity and sacrifice at every step,” he said
The Prime Minister also said that the countrymen had been wishing for easy access to Kartarpur Sahib and in 2019, the central government completed the work of the Kartarpur Corridor.
“It has always been a matter of pride for Gujarat that the fourth Gursikh, Bhai Mokham Singh ji, was from Gujarat, who played an important role in the establishment of Khalsa Panth,” PM added.
PM Modi further said, “In 2021, we are celebrating 400 years of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji’s Prakash Utsav, you must have seen we were successful in bringing the copies of Guru Granth Sahib from Afghanistan.”
