Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara was brought to court for a hearing under heavy security, where a number of Sikh youth welcomed him by showering him with flowers and shouted slogans of Jathedar Hawara Zindabad. Notably at the November 10, 2015 Sarbt Khalsa, Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara was selected as the Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib,
a position which he has not yet fully accepted. In a letter sent to the Sikh sangat, Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara said he would seek information before decided whether the decision to elect him as Jathedar was done with the full acceptance of all major Sikh organizations. Akaal Channel from UK covered the court appearance and also interviewed the Sikhs who attended.
Heavy police force was present throughout the complex. As Sikh Sangat had glimpse of Bhai Hawara, they raised “Bole So Nihal” slogans and showered flower petals on him. A delegation also presented a siropa to Bhai Hawara.
Meanwhile, a petition launched last month in USA has crossed 80,000 mark. Petition was launched by Sikhs for Justice seeking President Barrack Obama to raise the issue of Bhai Hawara’s release. The petition at the link http://wh.gov/iyzHm requires 19,000 additional signatures before it will be considered by the USA President.
