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 on Tuesday.

"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.

He handed over the 'chaadar' to be offered at the dargah to Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Minister of State for Minority Affairs.
