PANTHIC JATHEBANDIA GATHER AT MOHALI IN SUPPORT OF HUNGER PROTEST ACTIVIST BHAI GURBAKSH SINGH – MARCH FROM SRI AKAL TAKHT SAHIB ON 4 DECEMBER

2 December 2013, Mohali – A number of prominent personalities from various Sikh organisations gathered today at Gurdwara Amb Sahib, Ajitgarh (Mohali), where an Akhand Path Sahib Bhog took place followed by speeches in support of the Sikh prisoners justice campaign.

Bhai Gurbaksh Singh, a Sikh activist, is currently on day 19 of a hunger protest with a pledge to carry on until death, unless authorities free 7 political Sikh prisoners that have long served their legal sentences, but still languishing in Indian jails without good reason.

Bhai Gurbaksh Singh and the Sikh bodies have announced a peaceful March on 4 December 2013 in Punjab to highlight the justice campaign to free the 7 Sikh prisoners. The procession will commence promptly at 9:00am from Sri Akal Takht Sahib, travelling through the cities of Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Sumrala and Morinda, before finally ending at Gurdwara Amb Sahib in Mohali.

After the speech by Bhai Gurbaksh Singh, Sikh Panthic preacher Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa Dhadrianwale, who has personally known Bhai Sahib for many years, spoke at the gathering and told the Sangat how even 13 years ago the Sikh activist used to ask for, and be given ten minutes of stage time to speak about Panthic affairs after the Diwaans in the early days of their Parchar. Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa, attending after a meeting with Bhai Sahib on 30 November to show solidarity with the cause of innocent Sikh prisoners, advised on the need to come on one platform for oneness in the nation and reminded the Sangat, “first we are Sikhs, and our organisations come second”.

Other prominent personalities in attendance were Bhai Daljit Singh Bittu (Panch Pardhani), Bhai Satnam Singh Paonta Sahib (Dal Khalsa), Bhai Harchranjit Singh Dhami (Dal Khalsa), Bhai Harpal Singh Cheema (Akali Dal Panch Pardhani), Baba Ram Singh (Damdami Taksal), Former IAS Gurtej Singh, Former DGP Shashi Kant, Human Rights Activists Advocate Navkiran Singh and Advocate Amar Singh Chahal, Sikh Scholar Bhai Gurdarshan Singh Dhillon, Bhai Gurpreet Singh Khalsa (Son of Baba Hari Singh Randhawe Wale) amongst others.

The Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Singh Sahib Giani Gurbachan Singh Khalsa, as well the SGPC President, Avtar Singh Makkar, have also visited Bhai Sahib to discuss the peaceful campaign and enquire about his wellbeing.

In the meantime, Sikhs across the Diaspora outside India are active to support the campaign, with the UK population believed to be organising a demonstration in Birmingham on 3 December.

Anti Sikh Badal is not going to help Sikhs. I know sarna is anti Sikh, but he could have at least supported Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa. I guess they care less if innocent Sikhs rot in the Indian jails.

Well done Sikhs for taking out this march against Govt repression. Interesting to see many Sikhs who regularly attack others for being anti panthic are missing from this great effort.

http://www.sikh24.com/2013/12/khalsa-march-reaches-gurdwara-amb-sahib-despite-desperate-efforts-to-halt-it-multiple-times/#.Up93AvRFCM8

MOHALI, Punjab (December 4, 2013)—Ardas was done at Sri Akal Takhat Sahib at the scheduled time for the Khalsa March. Sikh Sangat started arriving early there to take part in the march to Gurdwara Amb Sahib in Mohali to show support for Bhai Gurbaksh Singh. The march was going to be entirely peaceful, but the number of police deployed throughout Sri Amritsar Sahib worried the Sikh Sangat. The agenda of the Punjab Police soon came to light when they stopped the sangat members from leaving Sri Akal Takhat Sahib. Their desperate efforts kept Sikh Sangat strangled within the Darbar Sahib premises.

Sikh Sangat Adament; Dastar of Main Singh Removed

Sikh Sangat was adamant about going on with its planned march but the police seem to have received orders to do anything possible to halt or delay it. During one of the incidents, a senior police officer from Amritsar Sahib misbehaved and pushed one of the Singhs in the Punj Pyare (5 beloved ones). His dastar was removed forcibly which led to elevated tensions between the Sangat and police. Sikh Sangat was also present in large numbers outside Sri Darbar Sahib. An agitation was held at once close to the Jallianwala Bhag by a large number of Sikhs.

Bhai Balwant Singh Gopala and Bhai Harpreet Singh of Sikh Youth Federation Bhindrawale decided to go on a hunger strike as well to protest against the police’s behavior towards the Sikh Sangat.

Seeing the police not cooperating with the Sikh Sangat, the Dal Khalsa, one of the prime organizers of the march set off a number of Sikhs from Jallandar to march towards Gurdwara Amb Sahib. They were to go through villages and gather support for Bhai Gurbaksh Singh. This Jatha too was stopped later on in Beas.

In the meantime, the police finally gave up after seeing the Sikh Sangat unwavering in taking out the march. Sikhs throughout the route were ready to join the marchers in large numbers. Finally Giani Gurbachan Singh was asked to do ardas to set off the march from Akal Takhat Sahib. The scene of Sikhs leaving Akal Takhat Sahib was totally astounding. There were Kesri dastars and flags everywhere throughout the city.

A Number of Sikh Leaders Arrested

A number of Sikhs were arrested by the police from different places. Namely, Bhai Kanwarpal Singh of Dal Khalsa, who also provides updates to Sikh24 from time to time, was picked up yesterday night. Baba Baljit Singh Daduwal too was picked up shortly after he left Sri Akal Takhat Sahib. Both were later released when the march had already covered significant distance.

Following statement was shared by Bhai Kanwarpal Singh shortly after his release -

Misusing its power, Punjab government has committed a gross mistake by creating obstacles to foil the March. Unfortunately, the government has tried to curb the socio-religio rights of the Sikhs. I was taken into custody by Amritsar police previous night at 10 PM under section 7/51 and released today at 2 PM after the March left the Amritsar city. The March is moving forward towards its destination i.e. Gurdwara Amb Sahib, Mohali.

Sikh Sangat Arrive at Gurdwara Amb Sahib in Large Numbers

Gurdwara Amb Sahib turned into a massive gathering of the Khalsa Panth. Sikhs from all over Punjab reached there to show their support for Bhai Gurbaksh Singh and demand the release of Singhs from jails. Bhai Gurbaksh Singh addressed the Sangat in much chardi kala (high spirits) despite having not eaten anything for over 20 days. Bhai Gurbaksh Singh later requested the Singhs of Sikh Youth Federation Bhindrawale to stop their hunger strike. He himself fed them with love and appreciated their efforts.

The marchers covered over 200 kilometers while going through major cities likes Kartarpur Sahib, Phagwara, Ludhiana, Samrala, and Morinda and finally arriving at Gurdwara Amb Sahib in Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar, Mohali.
