    Hunger Strike for Human rights In INDIA


    In India, about 119 Sikhs are in prison even after completing their political imprisonment. They have spent more time in prison and are not getting released by government. To get all Sikhs released, Mr. Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa is on hunger strike since Nov 14th outside of Sikh temple Gurudwara Amb Sahib, Sector 8, Mohali, Punjab, India. A 20 days of his hunger strike, police arrested Mr. Khalsa for his strike place force fully and released him after two days. Hunger strike was supported by Mr. Damandeep Singh Khalsa in the absence of Mr. Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa. Mr. Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa is back on strike. Mr. Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa has developed some kidney problem caused by long time hunger. Doctors are reporting about his health and he may pass away in next 3-5 days. Sikhs around the world have been protesting in support of Mr. Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa, but local government has banned all media channels for this news.
    Situation in Punjab is getting worse day by day and chances are high for civil war in case Mr. Gurbakhsh Singh Khalsa passes away. No local news channel is providing any coverage. Only social media is spreading this news. We are requesting CNN to provide coverage in Punjab, India and bring this cause in front of world.
