    Hunger Strike for Human Rights

    In Punjab, a northern region of India, one man of Sikh religion decided to take a stand. And it was not for himself, but for the prisoners who have been in jail long past their sentence. On November 14th, Bhai Gurbaksh Singh refused to eat any more food until the corrupt Indian government decided to pay heed to the justice he demanded. Shortly after, he was wrongly arrested for four days, where the police officers attempted to force feed him. However, he had already promised God that he would not give in until his goal is reached. He was released, and has not lost this battle yet. For 36 days, and counting, he has not touched a morsel of food to his lips. Will he ever back down from this challenge? The answer is no, and will always be. Such is the courage and spirit all must acquire, but only some truly possess. Use your voice, and roar for the triumph of Bhai Gurbaksh Singh. Roar for the life of one, who is fighting for the lives of several hundred Sikhs waiting to be free from the government's intolerance.
