Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said ‘Sikh Gurus’ sacrificed everything to safeguard the nation, remained solely dedicated to selfless service and paved the way for the protection of humanity and their teachings serve as inspiration for generations.
Extending warm greetings to the people on Guru Nanak Dev’s ‘Prakash Parv’ in the state capital, the CM said, “Sikh Gurus spread the light of strength and faith wherever they went. Their lives and teachings inspire generations to remain selflessly dedicated to nation, dharma, and humanity.”
Yogi said, “Such grand and fearless celebrations on auspicious occasions like these cannot take place at Guru Nanak’s holy place ‘Nankana Sahib’. We must learn from our mistakes in the past. History is not just a medium to study but also guides us not to repeat blunders.”
The CM said the Sikh Gurus have always stepped forward to protect humanity whenever there was unrest, women were not safe, and humanity and dharma were in danger. “Their teachings awakened people and spread the light of humanity,” he said.
He said, “Today, when travelling is easy, we still face difficulties, however, Guru Nanak Dev paved the way for the welfare of humanity through religious preaching even by visiting places where it was nearly impossible to reach.”
Deputy Chief Minister Brajesh Pathak, Sardar Baldev Singh Aulakh, Dinesh Sharma, Sanyukta Bhatia, and Rajeshwar Singh were present on the occasion.
