Mohali, Punjab (December 30, 2013): It is learnt that Sikh preacher Baba Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale visited Bhai Gurbaksh Singh on November 30, 2013 at Gurdwara Amb Sahib, Ajitgarh (Mohali). It is notable that various other Sikh preachers including former Jathedar Prof. Darshan Singh and various leaders of Sant Samaj have also visited Bhai Gurbaksh Singh whose hunger strike completed 18th day today.
Bhai Gurbaksh Singh is on a hunger protest since November 14 with a pledge to carry on until death, unless authorities free political Sikh prisoners that have long served their sentences but still languishing in Indian jails without justification.
The peaceful campaign is aimed at freeing five particular Sikhs – 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 served their terms of sentence but have not been released by the respective state governments.
“Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa, who have been speaking on this topic during their Gurmat Diwaans, have said they will offer their full commitment to any campaign instigated to free innocent individuals or those who have served their legal sentence, but have not been released”, reads a statement sent by PD Network to the Sikh Siyasat News (SSN).
Baba Ranjit Singh could join December 02 solidarity sitting and hunger strike called by various Sikh organizations to support the cause of Bhai Gurbaksh Singh.
