Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday paid tributes to Guru Teg Bahadur for his supreme sacrifice as he went to Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib in Delhi in an unscheduled visit. There were no security arrangements or traffic barriers for people during the visit, officials said.
PM Modi had also paid tributes to Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji on his Shaheedi Diwas in a tweet on Saturday. “Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji’s life epitomised courage and compassion. On his Shaheedi Diwas, I bow to the great Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji and recall his vision for a just and inclusive society.”
Guru Tegh Bahadur was the ninth of 10 Gurus of the Sikh religion and was the youngest son of Guru Hargobind. He was born in Amritsar in 1621. His martyrdom is remembered as the Shaheedi Divas of Guru Tegh Bahadur.
