(In the picture Bhai Iqbal Singh ji with Bibi Nirpreet kaur).
Bhai Iqbal Singh Bhatti–it was his 41 day on his FAST UNTO DEATH since 5th December 2013. His condition is getting deteriorated day by day. He complains of backache and leg pains. his wait is now 72 kgs and BP 80/100 with his blood sugar to 83. He feels it difficult in sitting straight so he generally relax with his legs striaght on bed. Many people visited from Tilak nagar, Vikaspuri, also from across Yamuna to meet him and to show their solidarity with him on his demands.
The stage control is being looked by me. kindly send your valuable suggestions to carry out this duty honestly and to aware the visitors from all faiths and political parties. So far all the expenses are covered by Bhai Iqbal Singh ji Bhatti or Bibi Nirpreet kaur ji who herself sits there and watch the proceedings. Her guidance to all volunteers and to us is very appreciable. I request ll those Sikh youths and sisters to pay a visit at Jantar Mantar to show your solidarity with his demands as he is fighting for us. All those were denied passport renewals or visa or fresh passport by govt. of India abroad, are our brothers or sisters. Their father went to France and other European countries or to west have a right to pay obeisance at Golden temple and other holy places of their faith in India and to meet their relatives and other members of family in villages. If he demands release of all prisoners arrested under TADA and completed their awarded sentence or above 70 years of age –be freed. Those people are also among us. Someone, somewhere in our hometowns waiting for their safe return. So please come forward to show your unity and solidarity to his demands as follows;
His demands are justified.
He is mainly focused on ;
1- A fast rack Court for all cases pending for the last 29 years means since 1984,
2- To issue new Passports for all those Sikhs and their families who got political asylum in foreign countries. One should not forget, they escaped to save their lives and families as Beant Singh & KPS Gill were behind them to kill. These Sikh youths managed to escape and in getting political asylum though they are not wanted/needed in any Court of law in India,
3- All Sikh prisoners be released from jails languished under TADA act and have completed their awarded sentences,
4- All senior citizens languished in jails be released on humanitarian grounds without any discrimination.
