He went on to say that Guru Tegh Bahadur’s valorous actions against Aurangzeb taught the country how to combat terrorism and religious extremism.

Modi’s plea to the Sikh community came two days after a bombing at the district court complex in Ludhiana, Punjab. When speaking about Guru Nanak Devji and his teachings, Modi stated that foreign invaders were eroding India’s trust around the time when the Sikh guru was born.  

PM Modi stated that the Gurus’ contributions were not confined to social changes and spirituality, but that they also offered leadership to the country. His entire life has been an example of putting the country first. The Gurudwara Bhai Mokham Singhji has been established in his honour in Bet Dwarka.

He also recalls how a hurricane wrecked the gurudwara in Lakhpat in 1998, and how it was damaged again in 2001 after the Kutch earthquake. He also informed the crowd about how his administration had launched the Kartarpur corridor with Pakistan, brought Guru Granth Sahib back from Afghanistan, and received 150 things from the United States, including a dagger with Guru Gobind Singh‘s name engraved in Persian. Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel attended the function at Lakhpat.
