In New Delhi’s Major Dhyan Chand Stadium, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended a celebration honouring the “Veer Bal Diwas.” On Monday in New Delhi, Major Dhyan Chand Stadium hosted a celebration honouring the “Veer Bal Diwas.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi was there. The celebration was held in honour of Mata Gujri Ji, the four Sahibzade (Sikh Guru Gobind Singh’s sons), and the last Sikh Guru.
“Against the terror of Aurangzeb, against his plans to change India, Guru Gobind Singh ji stood like a mountain. Aurangzeb and his people wanted to change the religion of Guru Gobin Singh’s children by the force of a sword,” Modi said on the occasion.
Additionally, PM Modi stated that there have been many atrocities throughout history. “Three centuries ago, the Chamkaur and Sirhind wars were fought. On one side, there was the Mughal Sultanate blind to communal extremism and on the other hand, there were our Gurus,” news agency ANI quoted PM Modi as saying.
“On the one hand, there was terrorism and on the other hand, there was spiritualism. On the one hand, there was communal mayhem, while on the other hand, there was liberalism…on one hand, there were forces of lakhs, while on the other hand, there was Veer Sahibzaade who didn’t relent at all,” PM Modi added.
Describing Sahibzaades inspiration for generations, the prime minister said, “A country that has such history should be filled with confidence but unfortunately, in the name of history, we were taught only certain narratives which leads to an inferiority complex,” PM Modi stated. “If we want to take India to newer heights of success then we have to become free from the narrow perspectives of the past,” he mentioned.
PM Narendra Modi also attended the 300 or so Baal Kirtanis performing a “Shabad Kirtan.” In order to honour the courage of the “Sahibzades,” the four sons of the last Sikh guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Modi declared that December 26 would be observed as “Veer Bal Diwas” on January 9, 2022, the day of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s Prakash Purab.
