At the order of the Punjab government, the DMCH (Dayanand Medical College & Hospital) authorities started force feeding Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa yesterday on April 5. However, early in the morning around 2 AM, Bapu Surat Singh removed the feed pipes in absence of hospital staff
As hospital and police authorities tried to force feed (sangat saw shocking video earlier), Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa protested and removed feed pipe (you can see in video). Bapuji is determined on his stand to continue sangharsh till release of Sikh political prisoners. It is fundamental right of any citizen to protest peacefully and Bapuji is doing to the best of his abilities (at age of 83) to support the cause.
With grace of Waheguru, this morcha will be fateh and Singhs will be able to breathe in free air, one day. History has been witness that truth has always prevailed and oppressors have turned into dust.
Let’s all stand together with Bapu ji at the time of need and show solidarity to the cause.
Bapu Surat Singh was without food, and only drank water, for almost one month when he removed the food pipes 25 days ago. Over the course of the past 25 days, his health has deteriorated.
Bapu Surat Singh Ji Khalsa has been on hunger strike since January 16, 2015 seeking the release of Sikh politicial prisoners. In this 447 day long struggle, Bapu Ji has been force fed several times at various hospitals near Ludhiana. At one time, pipes were stiched to his forehead to keep him from removing them. Bapu Surat Singh is on a fast until death to seek the release of political prisoners who have completed their terms but have not been released by the government.
