"My grandfather has been hungry for justice since 18th January 2015, which makes '826' days today. Yet, no one cares enough to spend as little as 2 minutes of their day to share this information as the Indian media is NOT covering any of this. Upon asking many people in India if they knew about this issue, it was heartbreaking to hear that so many of them did not know who Bapu Ji were.
Badal, himself claimed that he had no recollection of who he was.
As Sikhs, we are taught that our religion comes before everything. We are Sikh before we are anything else. When Sikhs are forced to use violence (to defend themselves and the most sacred place for us, Sachkhand Sri Harimandir Sahib) we are labeled as terrorists. And when we try to stand up for what is right by holding peaceful protests such as Bapu Ji’s hunger strike, we are ignored. Sikhs have no voice in India. This needs to change. Writing posts on social media wont do much but if even one person was moved by Bapu ji’s incredible dedication and high spirits, then we are one step closer to standing together as a Khalsa Panth against the unfair Indian Government.
Also, nothing is more powerful than an ardaas.
