In another tweet, PM Modi also shared the audio of the Gurbani Shabad sung by KTS Tulsi. PM said he was “touched” by the gesture of Tulsi, the Rajya Sabha member from Congress-ruled Chhattisgarh.

During his address at the ‘Bhoomi Poojan’ event of the Ram Janmbhoomi in Ayodhya on August 5 last year, PM Modi had mentioned Shri Guru Gobind Ji’s Gobind Ramayan. The statement was later criticised by many saying that the Sikh guru never wrote anything as such. There were protests at some places against the PM’s statement.
On January 20, 202, Prime Minister paid homage to Guru Gobind Singh on his 354th birth anniversary. In a tweet, he had said the 10th Sikh Guru’s life was devoted to creating a just and inclusive society.
