Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the 17th-century Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib to offer prayers on the occasion of 400th Prakash Parab or the birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur on Saturday. Modi visited the gurdwara without a security route and special security arrangements, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said.
PM Modi also extended his greetings to the citizens on Twitter. “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,” he wrote on the microblogging site.
