Stifling the Sikh voice – Second attempt by Punjab government in two days

December 6, 2013 | By

Chandigarh/ Punjab (December 06, 2013): It seems as if Punjab government led by Badal Dal-BJP combine has decided to suppress the voice of Sikhs in Punjab at all costs.

Stifling the Sikh voice – Second attempt by Punjab government in two days - Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Khasla arrestedAfter attempting to stop ‘Bandi Singhs Rihai March’ on Dec. 04, the Punjab police under apparent directions of the Badal government launched a covert mid-night action on the intervening night of December 5 and 6 for forcible removing Bhai Gurbaksh Singh from the site of his struggle for Sikh political prisoners languishing in Indian Jails even after completing the terms of their sentences.

According to eye witnesses it was more an act of abduction than an arrested carried as per law.

The police party was in civil dresses, i.e. without uniform – a particular requirement of law (Code of Criminal Procedure – Cr. P. C.) when a lawful arrest is to be carried out.

“Many police personnel were in drunken condition”, an eye-witness told Sikh Siayasat News (SSN) representative at Amb Sahib (Mohali).

It is notable that many Sikhs are languishing in Indian jail even after serving the terms of their sentences. A Kurkshetra (Haryana) based Sikh – Gurbaksh Singh Khasla has initiated struggle to secure the release of these Sikh prisoners including Bhai Gurmit Singh, Bhai Shamsher Singh, Bhai Lakhwinder Singh (who are confined in Burail Jail, Chandigarh since 1995), Bhai Lal Singh (who was arrested in 1992 by Gujarat police and is currently confined in Nabha, Maximum Security Jail) and Bhai Gurdip Singh (who is confined in Gurbarg Jail, Karnataka for the last 23 years). These individuals have long served the sentences awarded to them by Indian court but they were not being released from Indian jails.

Parkash Singh Badal and other Badal Dal leaders often accuse Congress for being anti-Sikh; but the reality is that in relations to the cause of the Sikh nation their (Badal Dal) role is no different from that of the the Congress.

Both Congress and Badal Dal have played equally anti-Sikh role with only difference that that former has put-up the mask of so-called ‘secularism’ while later occasionally (opportunistically) pretend itself as a ‘panthic party’.
