The Indian Community in the US viewed the digital exhibition that was hosted on the lives of the Sahibzade, the Indian High Commission in the US said in a tweet. In the remarks, Charge d'Affaires Sripriya Ranganathan highlighted the unparalleled sacrifices made by the Sahibzade.

Meanwhile, the Indian High Commission in London also marked the event with an exhibition.

"If we want to take India to newer heights of success then we have to become free from the narrow perspectives of the past," PM Modi said during a remembrance programme organized at Major Dhyan Chand Stadium in New Delhi.

Addressing the gathering PM Modi said that today the nation is paying tribute to the Sahibzades as they present an example of courage, valour and sacrifice.

Furthermore, he said that the 'Panch Pyare' of Guru Gobind Singh were from all parts of the country, signifying the unity in diversity of India, hence the Sikh Guru tradition is also an inspiration for the idea of 'Ek Bharat-Shreshtha Bharat."
