Modi in Gurudwara
Prime minister Narendra Modi paid a visit to Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib to offer his prayers at the event of the 400th Prakash Parab of Master Teg Bahadur on Saturday.
Modi visited the gurdwara without a security route and special security arrangements, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said.
“Prayed at Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib today. We can never forget the life, ideals and supreme sacrifice of Sri Teg Bahadur Ji,” PM tweeted and shared photographs of him praying at the Gurudwara.
Gurudwaras have become a lifesaver during this pandemic by providing ‘oxygen langars’ to save the dying population of the nation.
Earlier in the morning, PM offered his tributes to the ninth Guru of Sikhism and said, “On the special occasion of his 400th Parkash Purab, I bow to Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji. He is widely respected globally for his courage and his efforts to serve the downtrodden. He refused to bow to tyranny and injustice. His supreme sacrifice gives strength and motivation to many.”
“From Guru Nanak Dev to Guru Tegh Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh - our Sikh Guru tradition is a philosophy of life in itself,” PM had said.
