New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee greeted the nation on the martyrdom day of Guru Teg Bahadur, recalling his supreme sacrifice and message of love, peace and unity.

"Let hatred and violence find no place in our thoughts and may the courage and humanism which Guru Teg Bahadur stood for guide our path always," he added.

Guru Tegh Bahadur also known as Hind-di-Chaadar, for protecting Hindus and Sikhs against forced conversion in the hands of Muslims under Aurangzeb, became the 9th Guru of Sikhs on 16 April 1664.

He was executed on the orders of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in Delhi for resisting the forced conversions of Hindus in Kashmir.
