On the special occasion of 400th Parkash Purab, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib Saturday morning.
PM Modi tweeted, “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 also said, “We can never forget the life, ideals and supreme sacrifice of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji.”
Gurudwara Sis Ganj is special as it is the place where the ninth Sikh guru was beheaded by the Mughals in 1675.
Parkash Purab is the birth anniversary of Guru Teg Bahadur.
