New Delhi: A day after the martyrdom anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise visit to the Gurudwara Rakabganj in Delhi early morning on Sunday and paid tributes to the ninth Sikh Guru for his supreme sacrifice.
Members of the Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee were surprised at the presence of PM Modi in the premises.
There was very little security and no barricading arrangements on the roads during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s unscheduled visit to the Gurudwara Rakabganj.
Coming as it does amidst the farmers’ protest against the agricultural laws of the central government, PM Modi’s surprise visit to the Gurudwara Rakabganj is being considered to be a significant development.
According to sources, special care was taken so that the common man does not face any inconvenience
due to PM Modi’s visit to the Gurudwara Rakabganj.
As the number of people visiting the to the Gurudwara Rakabganj is quite high on Sundays, the usually high-level security for PM Modi was considerably toned down.
Guru Teg Bahadur sacrificed his life to protect the Hindu religion and defy the inhuman atrocities perpetrated by Mughal ruler Aurangzeb.
Guru Teg Bahadur’s martyrdom is commemorated every year as Martyr’s Day.
