Sonia Gandhi greets nation on Gurupurab

New Delhi, Nov 14 (IANS) Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday greeted the people on the occasion of Gurupurab, which marks the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak.

Gandhi said Guru Nanak was a poet, a nationalist, a social reformer, a philosopher and a preacher who advocated brotherhood of mankind.

“He believed in one god and thus urged us not to support discrimination based on religion, colour, caste and gender. In the basic teachings of Sikhism, he always upheld values of sacrifice, offering, association with virtuous and prayer,” Gandhi said in a statement.
