Respected Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa Ji,
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
This Appeal is written to you on behalf of thousands of Sikh Sangat who are a member of XXXX (name of your organization), the umbrella organization representative of Sikhs in the YYYY (name of the country). XXXX is an elected body of ZZ (number of members) Sikh Gurdwaras and institutions.
Firstly, we commend you of your unparalleled services to the Khalsa Panth during the hunger strike of 2013 and 2014-2015. Nobody has brought such awareness to the cause of unjustly detained prisoners as you have by going through a great amount of personal torture. You have sacrificed your interests, your family’s interests and your heath for the service of the panth. You have awoken millions of Sikhs worldwide towards the cause. For that we consider your Ardaas as been blessed by Guru Sahib. An ignored issue of Sikh political prisoners has now become an issue of paramount importance for the Panth and legal process to attain release of not only seven but many more prisoners has now started.
Secondly, we believe that that the issue of Sikh Political prisoners is not a fight that can be solved by your self-sacrifice. We believe that, now the 25 million Sikhs worldwide have to take the movement that you have started to the next level and put the full force behind our political prisoners in a legal way and win the fight.
Finally, on behalf of thousands of American Sikh sangat who have supported your movement from the day one, we ask you to break your hunger strike within 24 hours of receiving this letter. Your martyrdom will not be of any benefit to anyone except for the Government of India, who wants you dead so that this issue can be forgotten. We simply cannot allow that in our good conscience. If you choose to sacrifice yourself you will break many hearts and fill the Panth with grief and anger. It will send a wave of pessimism and frustration throughout the Panth. Anger and pessimism will do us no good at this time. We know that you want this movement to be peaceful, your death will lead to a lot of unrest, and you probably know this.
If you want to see the Sikh Political prisoners freed, you have to stay alive and together we have to find a way that will work. We already know by the martyrdom of Sr. Darshan Singh Pheruman that this strategy has not worked in the past. If we keep losing our fighters, who will be left to fight for the Panth?
We cannot promise you what the Akal Takhat Jatthedar had last year, but, you have our word that if you break your hunger strike as asked, we will send a representative to sit with you and discuss the next steps going forward and work on a resolution together upon your recovery.
We hope that you will consider our request and respond soon so we can look forward to a new day in strengthening this movement.
