    Gurbaksh Singh: The Non-Violent Man Who Has Been on a Hunger Strike for 36 Days

    Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa had been peacefully protesting against the Indian Government by going on a hunger strike for 36 days and yet the Indian Government is failing to acknowledge his courageous non violent action.
    This Sikh man is going on the hunger strike due to the fact that Indian Government has held five Sikh prisoners beyond their prison sentence in jail. Prisoners of other races have been released upon their sentence except Sikh prisoners. the government has and is continuing to ignore and discriminate against the minority of Sikhs in India. when will Justice prevail in India for the Sikhs. Due to government not allowing the media to cover this freedom fighter's story, no media has provided this in Entlish. so the Sikh community in California is requesting that a CNN reporter report this story and being up to the international level, as other peaceful protestors such Gandhi have received attention from the government in a short amount of time, yet Sikhs haven't and yet are not either.
