NEW DELHI—Jathedar Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has expressed condolences over the demise of Bibi Ajeet Kaur (sister of Bhai Sukhdev Singh and Bhai Mehal Singh Babbar) and Bhai Balkar Singh (brother of Shaheed Bhai Avtar Singh Brahma).
In a message shared with Sikh24 through his sister Bibi Manpreet Kaur, Bhai Hawara strongly condemned the unavailability of basic facilities to Bhai Jagtar Singh Tara in the Burail Jail.
Bhai Hawara stated that the Indian Government doesn’t miss any opportunity to mentally and physically harass the Sikhs. Referring to Bhai Tara’s hunger strike, he said that Sikhs have to struggle even for their basic rights despite of their major contribution towards the freedom movement of India.
In regards to the hunger strike of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa, Bhai Hawara appealed the Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib to pay attention towards the Sikhs languishing across different jails of India.
He also appealed the whole Sikh nation to come forward in support of Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa, who is on fast unto death since January 16, 2015 for the release of political Sikh prisoners.
