New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday pitched for harmony among all religions, citing the “great message” of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti as he sent a ‘chaadar’ to be offered at his dargah in Ajmer.
Greeting people on the occasion of the annual ‘Urs’ of Khwaja Chishti, Modi said in a message that India has been a land of sages, saints and prophets for thousands of years.
He recalled Khwaja Chishti’s message of amity to his followers and said it is relevant even today.
“Khwaja had given a great message to his followers from all religions to live in harmony, keeping with the tradition of sufis and saints. That message is relevant even today,” the Prime Minister said.
