Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa who was “released” earlier from the PGI in Chandigarh has now been taken to Ludhiana once again. Sikh24 has learned that Bapu Surat Singh has warned the Punjab Government to take swift action in release of Sikh political prisoners or else he will stop the intake of water as well.
Support of Sikh sangat continued to pour in at the PGI hospital in Chandigarh where visitors started arriving from far and near. Yesterday, a Jatha of Sikh Sangat arrived specially from New Delhi to inquire about the health of Bapu Surat Singh.
In a message to the Sikh Sangat after being discharged from the PGI, Bapu Surat Singh Khalsa said –
Respected sadh sangat, gurfateh
During the past 4-5 days at the PGI hospital in Chandigarh, I suffered more mental torture than physical. I have come to know that they are taking me away once again and the Punjab Government wants to put pressure on me [to take medicines].
While I thank the Sadh Sangat, I want to warn the Punjab Government that if they pressurize me, I will stop the intake of water as well. I will forever be indebted to you, as it will lead to my martydom much faster.
Gurdeep Singh Bathinda, the conveynor of the Sangarsh committee stated that the doctors at PGI were pressurizing Bapu Ji to undergo medical treatment. “Bapu Ji remained firm in his stance and did not take any medicines or undergo treatment. Sangarsh committee too is firm that Bapu Ji is on fast-onto-death and will therefore not take any medications,” he told Sikh24.
