US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden have extended their warmest wishes to the Sikh community on the 552nd birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, saying that his visionary message of equality, peace and service is as important today as it was five centuries ago.

Sikhs around the world celebrated Guru Nanak Jayanti on Friday.

“Jill and I extend our warmest wishes to the Sikh community on the 552nd anniversary of the birth of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of the Sikh faith. Guru Nanak's visionary message of equality, peace, and service is as important today as it was five centuries ago,” Biden said in a statement on Friday.

“His teachings emphasise the dignity and equal rights of all people, empowerment of women and girls, interfaith cooperation, and acts of service to support those in need," he said.
