SARDAR IQBAL SINGH BHATTI from France on hunger strike in Delhi with demands to release prof Davinder Pal singh bhullar who is a victim of state terrorism, and to punish the perpetrators of Sikh genocide 1984.
I just had a telephonic interview of Bhai Iqbal Singh ji. Though he was looking fine while talking but he has lost 26 kgs wait since he sat on hunger strike on 5th December 2013. He came back to India on 18th Dec and went strait way to Gurudwara Amb Sahib, Mohali (Sahibjada Ajit Singh Nagar). He wanted to sit earlier to meet his demands but earlier in May 2013 when he was on his fast at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, he got assurance from Manjit Singh GK, Arvind Kejriwal and Bibi Nirpreet kaur that they will persue the Prime minister and other higher authorities to meet his demands. He was also assured by Bibi Nirpreet kaur that if the demands are not accepted, she will also join the hunger strike and both will sit in August. Due to some reasons, it couldn’t be called in August but now he started from Paris on 5th December and since then he is on hunger strike.
He is a gurmukh person and shall never turn his back.
He is General Secretary in France and fights on turban issue, a known personality, supported by Bhai Gurbaksh singh ji. We too raise this voice and demand arrest and legal action against perpetrators of Sikh genocide 1984. 30 years have passed but justice to the Sikh community is denied but every effort is made to give a message as they are suppressed community. The recent denial of visa to two great Sikh personalities to visit India is an evidence to this policy.
Prof Davinder pal singh bhullar was arrested in 1993 at Frankfurt, west Germany in a fake passport travel case. He was trying to escape to Canada as Sumedh Saini was behind him. Saini had earlier killed his father and one uncle and beaten badly to some of his relatives who still are unable to walk freely but Badal has promoted to this tainted police officer as DGP of Punjab police. A legal case against him is pending in Supreme court in this regard.
Very few people would be aware of the fact that Bibi Upkar Kaur ji is mother of Prof bhullar. She was a govt. servant. Sumedh saini had warned her to whisk her to police station naked and she disappeared fearing it. Her job was gone as she couldn’t join her duties. I was told this by mother Upkar kaur ji herself when i met her at gurudwara Rakabganj Sahib ji few years ago.
Police produced 133 witnesses against Bhullar but none recognized him or accepted if he was present at the spot but Cycle thief Bitta accuses him for cheap publicity. Without any evidence, Court ordered him death sentence but where evidences were produced against Sajjan kumar, the same Indian court acquitted him.
This is an example of the dual policy in justice with minorities in India. Justice delayed is justice denied but here Indian govt. lingers on to provide opportunities to these perpetrators to die their natural death and never punish them because the ruling congress govt. was itself a party in killing of innocent Sikh youths and to rape their widows and other helpless Sikh women in 1984. This is also a blackspot on Hindus of India that they behaved so brutally that they didn’t hesitate to rape helpless women on deadbodies of their husbands, brothers or other male members of family.
Due to dual policy of justice and continued suppression, I feel ashamed on calling myself an Indian.
