India Thinks For The World’s Welfare Amid Global Conflicts, Says PM Modi

On Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed an event from the Red Fort to celebrate the 400th birth anniversary of Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur and said that India is following the ideals of Sikh gurus. He also noted that the Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib stands as a symbol of the sacrifice of Guru Tegh Bahadur. PM Modi said: “This holy Gurudwara reminds us how great was the sacrifice of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji to protect our great culture. At that time, there was a storm of religious fanaticism in the country. India, which considered religion as a matter of philosophy, science and self-reflection, was facing people who had committed violence and atrocities in the name of religion” “In front of Aurangzeb’s tyrannical thinking, Guru Tegh Bahadur ji, becoming ‘Hind di Chadar’, stood like a rock,” he added. Saying that India has a clear vision of global welfare, PM Narendra Modi said: “India has never posed a threat to any country or society. Even today, we think for the welfare of the whole world. When we talk about a self-reliant India, we keep the progress of the whole world in front of that goal,” To mark the occasion, the PM also released a commemorative coin and postage stamp. Red Fort is the place where Aurangzeb had given the orders to execute Guru Tegh Bahadur in 1675, and his death anniversary is commemorated as ‘Shaheedi Diwas’ on the 24th of November every year.

Boris Johnson’s India Visit: British PM To Offer India To Build Its Own Fighter Jets 

British PM Boris Johnson is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi today. As per reports, the British PM is going to offer India know-how so that India can build its own fighter jets. This development came amid western countries’ attempts to wean India away from Russia. This is Boris Johnson’s first visit to New Delhi as the Britain PM. He is likely to discuss trade and defence-related matters with PM Modi and look to strengthen India-UK ties. “The UK’s partnership with India is a beacon in these stormy seas. Our collaboration on the issues that matter to both our countries, from climate change to energy security and defence, is of vital importance as we look to the future,” said Mr Johnson. Although the United Kingdom cleared its stance that it will not lecture India for its stand on the Russia-Ukraine, the western countries have made several attempts to move India away from Russia. Washington has also offered more defence and energy sales to New Delhi. However, India continues to buy Russian oil even after Russia’s action over Ukraine, reasoning that the European countries were doing the same and in much larger quantities.
