Sikh Youth Front has welcomed the legitimate efforts started by Punjab Government in response to Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa’s struggle for the release of political Sikh prisoners.
In a statement shared with Sikh24, S. Papalpreet Singh (General Secretary, SYF) has said that the Punjab Government should immediately arrange the premature release of political Sikh prisoners who have already served mandatory terms of their life imprisonment. In addition, he said that the case of Prof. Davinderpal Singh Bhullar needs to be handled carefully.
Papalpreet Singh said that mere transfer of Prof. Bhullar from Delhi to Punjab is injustice to him. “As he has served two decades of his life in prison, he deserves permanent release,” he added.
Papalpreet Singh said that danger to health of Prof. Bhullar should be held accountable in case of his transfer to Punjab, as he is already under medical treatment at Tihar Jail in Delhi.
He also warned the Sikh masses to remain aware about the diplomatic approach of Punjab Government, as it might delay the release of Singhs excusing the legitimate procedure.
