NEW DELHI—Sarbat Khalsa appointed Akal Takht Jathedar Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara has appealed the entire Sikh community to respect and acquire positive attitude towards the sacrifice made by Bhai Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa. In a letter shared with Sikh24, he has said that Bhai Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa was bearing burden of his struggle’s failure on mind for a long time and was looking at ways to express regret.

In his letter, Jathedar Hawara has informed that Bhai Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa had been meeting him continuously and had sought permission from him to once again begin struggle for the release of political Sikh prisoners.

Jathedar Hawara has said that Bhai Gurbakhsh Singh had committed mistake by ending his struggle for two times under influence of sweet promises by government agents without taking the Sikh community into confidence but we shouldn’t forget that the issue of political Sikh prisoners had come to limelight only due to hunger strike of Bhai Khalsa and the Indian government had to grant parole to Sikh prisoners under pressure of his struggle.

Citing the tale of 40 Muktas, Jathedar Hawara has said that the Sikh community should honor sacrifice of Bhai Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa by taking inspiration from Sikh history.

Meanwhile, Sikh24 has learnt that the Haryana police have tightened security outside village Thaska Ali and the Sikh media reporters aren’t being allowed to enter into the village. Prominent media channels have been barred entry into Haryana. Sikh24 team, along with Akaal Channel camera person was stopped at the border.

Sikh activists are adamant on their stance of not cremating dead body of Bhai Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa till suspension of Kurukshetra’s SSP and DSP. However, the Haryana government has only agreed to suspend the SHO of concerned area.
