KHARAR, Punjab—A Session Court of Kharar, headed by Justice Ekta Uppal, has once again issued a production warrant for Sarbat Khalsa appointed Akal Takht Jathedar, Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara, for September 19.
Upon the court’s earlier directive, directing Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara to be produced before the court on August 19, the Tihar Jail authorities refused to produce him citing security reasons.
Jathedar Jagtar Singh Hawara was indicted under sections of the IPC and the Arms & Explosive Act. He faces life imprisonment in an assassination of the former Punjab chief minister, Beant “Singh”.
Jathedar Jagtar Singh has been acquitted of a string of other charges of assassinations and killings. The cases were thrown out by successive session judges as having no merit and being baseless accusations.
We need to have laws which are less harsh compared to what Britishers handed over to us .
The British laws are Imperialist in nature and place Nation above individuals.
