Upendra Bharat | HENB | New Delhi | April 21, 2022:: To mark the 400th birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur, Prakash Purba, PM Modi took part in the celebrations held at Red Fort in Delhi.
PM Modi released a commemorative coin and postage stamp on the occasion.
“I welcome you all on this pious occasion to mark the 400th birth anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur. I am happy that today, India is moving forward with the ideals of its Gurus,” PM Modi told in his address delivered to the occasion.
“Red Fort has been a witness to many important periods. This fort has also seen the martyrdom of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji and has also tested the courage of those who died for the country. …. Gurdwara Shishganj Sahib near the Red Fort is a symbol of the immortal sacrifice of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji. This holy Gurudwara reminds us of the great sacrifice of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji to protect our great culture. … The sacrifice of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji has inspired many generations of India to live and die to protect the dignity of their culture, for its honor and respect. … In front of Aurangzeb’s tyrannical thinking, Guru Tegh Bahadur became ‘Hind di Chadar’ and stood like a rock. This Red Fort is a witness that even though Aurangzeb severed many heads, but could not shake our faith…,” PM Narendra Modi added in his speech at Red Fort programme of 400th Prakas Purva event.
Praising the contribution of Sikh Community, PM Modi remarked, “New thinking, continuous hard work and 100% dedication, this is the identity of our Sikh society even today.”
He has also mentioned, “Our government is making continuous efforts to link the holy places of pilgrimage connected to Sikh tradition.”
The speech of PM Modi reminded the public about the ruthless Jihadi attitude of the Islamic rulers like Aurangzeb which went wild to eliminate the non-Islamic faith in confront.
History says, many Sikh Gurus and their kin and revered leaders of Sikh community were brutally executed by Mughal rulers.
Of the total ten Sikh gurus, two, Guru Arjan Dev and Guru Tegh Bahadur, were tortured and executed, and close kin of several gurus (such as the seven and nine-year old sons of Guru Gobind Singh), were brutally killed, along with numerous other main revered figures of Sikhism (such as Banda Bahadur, Bhai Mati Das, Bhai Sati Das and Bhai Dayala), who were also tortured and killed by Mughal rulers for refusing their orders, and for opposing the persecution of Sikhs and Hindus.
