This man is dying for a Human rights cause!
Dear People of the World,
In this picture is an 83 year old American resident, Bapu Surat Singh.
He has been on hunger strike for the past 245 days at his home village of Hassanpur, Panjab, India.
The reason for the hunger strike action is, he is requesting for the release of those Sikh political prisoner’s that have ALREADY completed their jail terms but are STILL languishing in Indian prisons.
He is currently very weak, and does not have long to go.
In this picture you can clearly see the deteriorating health of this elderly BRAVE and SELFLESS man.
If you AGREE that those that have already completed their jail terms should be released as per the law, then we ask you to kindly share or like this post to help us raise awareness.
Please reach Hassanpur now and give Bapu Ji your support.

Sangat Ji, the government has repeatedly stated that these Sikh political prisoners cannot be released. This is not true. When the government states that there is absolutely no way we can release them, we should say, we demand to know why Inspector Gurmeet Pinky, convicted of killing Sikh youth, sentenced to life imprisonment, can be released in 7-8 years and Singhs remain in jail, having served 20+ years? We demand to know why DSP Swaran Dass, convicted of killing Sikh youth, sentenced to life imprisonment, can be released in 5 years while his case was still pending in court, and Sikh political prisoners remain in jail? We demand to know why DSP Jaspal Singh, also convicted of killing Sikh youth, sentenced to 7-8 years, can be released in 1.5 yrs and be reinstated in his job in Punjab police?
