03/05/15 – During a large scale Gurmat Diwaan on 02/05/15, Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa Dhadrianwale have spoken in support of the elderly Bapu Surat Singh, who has been on hunger strike for the last 105 days.
What can be done where mothers/daughters are being thrown out of busses, where our Gursikh brothers standing up for the respect of Guru Granth Sahib Ji are having criminal cases registered against them, where the likes of Bapu Surat Singh are being ignored due to failures in the past by those who have attempted to do what he is doing now. Often fear of the past clouds our judgment, but not every person is the same and we do not want to be the ones who ignored a real lion.
Baba Ranjit Singh Khalsa advised that if there is a difference in views of how matters should be handled, then this should be discussed amongst brothers. We should not take everything at face value, but go to the bottom of every case and then make an informed unbiased judgment. However, if any third-party attempts to file cases against our brothers due to their endeavours of safeguarding the respect of our Guru, then Sikhs should stand united against such acts.
