LUDHIANA, Punjab—Sikh Parcharaks and Panthik Jathebandia are not being permitted to meet Bapu Surat Singh Ji, who is currently being forcefully kept at the DMC Hospital in Ludhiana. Bapu Ji has been on hunger strike since January 16, 2015.
Today the authorities prohibited Panthik Parcharak Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa Dhadrianwale from meeting with Bapu Ji. Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa and the Parmeshar Dwar Jatha have been active and vocal supporters of Bapu Ji’s campaign to free Sikh political prisoners languishing in Indian jails without reason.
Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa said Sikhs feel as if they are outsiders whilst living in India, where it seems the law is different for the minority communities. They said the Jathedars and leaders who claim to be the voice of the Panth should become actively involved and take a responsible lead role in this people’s campaign. Why are these leaders quiet?
Despite numerous peaceful requests, the Police did not allow the Parcharak to enter DMC Hospital, claiming the instructions had come from the higher authorities. Many others attempting to visit Bapu Surat Singh Ji at the DMC Hospital recently have also been barred from entering.
Talking to the press, Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa spoke about many of the issues revolving around the campaign, their involvement, and the state of affairs in Punjab
The peaceful campaign continues.
