PM Modi releases commemorative coin to mark birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh in New Delhi

Speaking on the steps undertaken by the government to open the Kartarpur Corridor, PM Modi said that his government is helping Indians and Sikhs, to visit the shrine of Guru Nanak Dev in Pakistan, that too visa-free.

PM Modi today released a commemorative coin of Rs 350, to pay tribute to the tenth Sikh guru, Guru Gobind Singh, on his 352nd birth anniversary. The event was attended by President Ram Nath Kovind and also the Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

PM Modi also extended greetings of Lohri to the Sikh community throughout the world.

“Coin of Guru Gobind Singh is etched in her hearts for the last hundred years. I am sure, it will be etched in the heart of people, in the coming years too” PM Modi said. He also wished farmers for their new harvest of the season.

PM Modi said that the coin is a just small attempt to pay tribute to Guru Gobind Singh. He said that Guru Gobind Singh was not only a great warrior but an erudite poet too who fought vehemently against the injustice meted out to people in the country. Guru Gobind Singh also gave the message of equality, cutting across boundaries of inferiority and superiority.

Guru Gobind Singh had laid the foundation of Khalsa in 1699. PM Modi said that the Khalsa was a step undertaken by Guru to unite the whole county and protect its citizens and civilization. Guru had an extraordinary knowledge, of scriptures like Vedas and Puranas, he added. He said that our country too is treading the path of Guru Gobind Singh and taking to world our knowledge of Yoga and Ayurveda, to renovate our civilization.

PM Modi declared, that the Prakash Utsav will not only be celebrated by union and state government offices in India, but also by the Indian embassies throughout the world.

Speaking on the steps undertaken by the government to open the Kartarpur Corridor, PM Modi said that his government is helping Indians and Sikhs, to visit the shrine of Guru Nanak Dev in Pakistan, that too visa-free. Stating that opening of the Kartarpur Corridor is the government’s attempt to redeem the country from the horrors of 1947 India-Pakistan partition, he added, “August 1947 mein jo chuk hui thi, yeh uska prayaschit hai. Humare guru ka sabse mehatvapurn sthal sirf kuch hi kilometer dur tha lekin use bhi apne saath nahi liya gaya. Yeh corridor uss nuksaan ko kum karne ka pramanik pramaan hai.”
