New Delhi, April 8 — Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the period of history in India in the last four centuries cannot be imagined without the influence of Guru Tegh Bahadur, the ninth Sikh Guru.
The Prime Minister was speaking during a meeting of the High-Level Committee (HLC) to commemorate the 400th birth anniversary of the ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur (Prakash Purab), via video conferencing that was chaired by him.
"In the last four centuries, there no period of India that we can imagine without the influence of Guru Teg Bahadur ji! As the ninth Guru, we all get inspiration from him," he said.
"From Guru Nanak Dev Ji to Guru Teg Bahadur Ji and then Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tradition of Sikh Guru is a complete life philosophy in itself," the PM added.
