Ludhiana, Punjab: It is learnt that Gurbaksh Singh Thaska Ali today visited Hasanpur (Ludhiana) to meet fasting Sikh activist Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa. As per reports Sikh sangat present at Bapu Surat Singh’s house opposed his and accused him for betraying the cause of Sikh political prisoners.
According to some unconfirmed reports Gurbaksh Singh was accompanied by some security personnel when he visited Hassanpur. Sources said that Gurbaksh Singh was also assaulted by some Sikh youth after which he left the place.
It may be recalled that Bapu Surat Singh (82) is on continuous hunger strike since January 16. He is demanding release of Sikh political prisoners who have already completed minimum mandatory terms of their sentences.
Police kept him on force-feeding through his nose for about two months at the Civil Hospital in Ludhiana. He was released by the police on April 24 after his family members met President of India.
Earlier another Gurbaksh Singh had twice started “fast unto death” seeking release of these prisoners, but he ended his fast at one pretext or the other.
Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa says that he is determined to end his life if the government fails to respond to his call. “I am determined that I will not end my hunger-strike in any case unless the government releases the concerned Sikh political prisoners. It’s not only an issue of release of Sikh political prisoners, it’s also an issue of sanctity of Ardas of a Sikh”, Bapu Surat Singh has repeatedly declared. But despite declarations and show of determination by Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa the struggle for release of Sikh political prisoners has not gained momentum.
