New York: USA based NGO, United Sikhs, has extended support to Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa’ Bandi Singhs Rihai Morcha.
A release by the United Sikhs says: [o]n this human rights day United Sikhs commends and honors human rights activists who go out of their way to stand for a cause, such as Gurbakash Singh, a Sikh human rights activist who has been fasting since November 2014 at Laknaur Sahib, Amritsar. Mr Singh is fighting for the freedom of Sikh prisoners who have not been released, despite serving the minimum terms of their sentence
“This struggle by Gurbakash Singh is a continuation of his 44 days long hunger strike during November-December 2013, which was ended after the temporary release of few prisoners” the release reads further.
“This hunger strike once again brings attention to the fates of Sikh prisoners who are discriminated, and unlike other Indian prisoners have not had their sentences shortened. United Sikhs supports Gurbakash Singh in his struggle of freedom, justice and equality”.
