After 125+ days of hunger strike, Bapu Ji’s body is slowly failing. However, his love for Sikhi and his people is strong and apparent from the humble way he folds his trembling hands to address the Sikh nation. There is no ‘thank you’ enough to give to Bapu Ji for advocating so vivaciously for Sikh political prisoners, but we can channel our energy into a collective voice. We can continue to use social media as a tool to apply public pressure and spur on the movement. We can direct our attentions to the pressing needs of the Sikh community. We can actively engage in the Dharam Yudh Morcha II and make sure that justice is achieved.
