NEW DELHI (February 12, 2015)—Bhai Baldeep Singh, a renowned Gurmat sangeet musician, as well as the Aam Aadmi Party member from Khadoor Sahib visited Vikram Singh Dhanaula yesterday. While the entire city of New Delhi, and the entire country was celebrating the victory of AAP, Bhai Baldeep Singh had received a message about Vikram Singh’s deteriorating health. In a message shared on his Facebook account, Bhai Baldeep Singh stated that he will not celebrate until the 1984 Sikh genocide culprits are brought to justice.

Bhai Baldeep Singh is one of the first politicians from any political affiliation to have paid Vikram Singh a visit. He called onto others to join the campaign started by Vikram Singh at Jantar Mantar. He mentioned the need to establish a SIT to investigate cases related to the 1984 genocide of the Sikhs.

He had also established a special court for these cases, however he was soon forced to resign and Central Government did not take forward Kejriwal’s initiatives.

Following is the complete message posted by Bhai Baldeep Singh -

Vikram Singh Dhanaula on indefinite hunger-strike:

I was just about beginning to celebrate Aam Aadmi Party’s historic victory in the 2015 Delhi Assembly elections when I got a message that the health of Vikram Singh Dhanaula has deteriorated. His hunger strike, to seek justice for the victims of 1984 genocide against the Sikhs, has now entered third month.

I spoke to a few fellow Gur-Sikh volunteers and we visited him last night. We discussed the matter and I assured him that until the Sikh community has not had had the guilty punished, we have no reason to celebrate. I told him that I am with him and that I will do all that I can within my finite and feeble might (so he can end his fast). I have told him that Punjab needs his kind of dedicated soldiers so it (Punjab) is able to stand back up on its feet, regain its lost glory and place as a responsible contributor of ideas, even inspiration and resilience to the country and beyond.

The question isn’t just about a Jagdish Tytler or a Sajjan Kumar or a Kamal Nath or the late H K L Bhagat but about hundreds of others who got so injected with anti-Sikh venom that they unleashed such a rampage, such killing, maiming, raping, looting, insulting the survivors with eternal scars as if. Who were these people? Where did they come from? Were they from the slums in and around the respective colonies the victims resided in and which were patronised by Congress and BJP? There were reports about people being brought from neighbouring regions including which are now called the National Capital Region. I was once threatened by an autorickshaw driver (1994) with all that he did in 1984 to me! So I know that locals were involved.

I want the SIT to even tell us, the Gur-Sikhs, how to reconcile with this gross insult and taunt inflicted with such an inhuman intent, months after the unforgettable criminal attack on the Akal Takht and Darbar Sahib.

Additionally, I demand a separate SIT to probe into all that led to the unforgettable and unforgivable attack called Operation Blue-Star; the failings of the central and state governments; the role of Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale and his aides, if any; by the Akali Dal and Congress politicians as is publicly alleged; the goof-ups by the state and national intelligence agencies; the misuse of paramilitary and police forces – their atrocities; justice that was delayed, that which was denied; the conspiracies —conspirators, manipulations —manipulators; and so on.

Vikram Singh Dhanaula’s demands are just; to have Sikh presence in the SIT that is to probe the anti-Sikh genocide; and two, to fast-track the whole process. I am requesting people to rally behind this lonesome crusader. Let us not let him suffer this indifference – such humiliation by the state all alone and all by himself.

Let us join him!

I will be with him at 4:00 PM sharp today!

    • So I wrote this thread out a few years ago, And Im going through the same same thing again, In the end I did email her it was an embarassing mess. This is how it started 5 years a go, I had a dream about her and when I woke up the first thing I said was Waheguru, I didnt feel right in my heart or my head, felt like there was somehing pulling me or not letting me sit still. Then I had another 4 dreams one day after the next. After a while I did email her, it was embaressing, a complete mess, I cant describe to you how bad it was.  I didnt tell her about the dreams it sounded weird like I was losing my mind, tbh it probably still came across like that.   In the end I knew something was not right with me, And I got up and went to India, to matha tekh at the Gurudwara, I went to see Mahapuhrsh[SP]. I showed them a photo of her, and to keep it simple they told me she didnt have a good heart. But when I saw them it felt like a huge weight was being lifted off me.  It took me about 2 years to sort of get myself back to how I was. At the time I was under a lot of pressure because I was buying a business and I had 30 day completion, and I was really stressed out, I think I had or was on the verge of a mental breakdown. Anyway time passed and then last year my dad died, he was 59 and just went instantly, spent the day with him at work, and he went home my mum was getting him food and by the time she went to tell him his food was ready he had passed away. I have found coming to terms with this very hard, I feel like he was stolen away from us. I dont understand what need there was for him to go. I know he was fed up, the world had drunk enough of his blood.  Anyway way last Friday I woke up again after having a dream about her, And again I been typing out emails, Ive deleted them because I dont want to do another round of doing my besthi. I am buying a house at the moment so I can move mum closer to me as I need to take care of her now. I am feeling the pressure, Im the only man left in my family now. I feel like its all on me, and Im going to <banned word filter activated> up everything my dad made. Basically I think somone has done something to me. I know I probably sound like Im losing my mind, and I probably am. But Im closer to the end than I am to the beginning, there not enough time left to keep making mistakes and recovering from them. I keep saying to God just tell me what you want and Ill give it to you, what ever it is I dont mind, what ever you want I will happily give to you. cant believe he wants me to commit a sin, or do something I know I shouldnt be doing.
    • So we find out who killed Hardeep Singh Nijjar. What we are going to do about it?  Me personally I try to avoid the whole Khalistan fiasco since religion and politics get mixed. That's a messy situation to be in. 
    • *bump I firmly believe that one quote in regards to cannabis is not written by Guru Nanak Dev Ji (O'lord the fear of thee). B/c nasha is nasha. But cannabis is a bit a different since it was used for medicinal purposes in India also. 
    • I feel gurdwaras are maybe somewhat getting back to their functions as dharmsalas containing schools and learning centres. With panjabi schools, gurmat classes, santhiya, martial arts, keertan training, with sikhi camps occasionally in towns, there is somewhat some functions connected to traditional gurdwaras of the past.
