JAGTAR SINGH HAWARA HAS BEEN SUFFERING FROM PAIN IN THE SPINE AND HIS LEFT LEG FOR THE PAST MONTH

On 13 June, our SOPW volunteer Parminder Singh, met with Jagtar Singh Hawara who is imprisoned in Tihar Jail Delhi. On previous visits, Jagtar Singh would be one of the first inmates to come out at visiting time. Yet, Parminder Singh found that on this occasion he had not arrived for the visit even after 15 minutes. The jail officials kept saying he was on his way and when he finally appeared he was being brought out in a wheel chair. After exchanging their 'fateh', Jagtar Singh asked after the state of the Sikh community (making reference to the recent events at the Akal Takht on 6th June).

Parminder Singh showed great concern for Jagtar Singh's deteriorated health and although he was in high spirits, Jagtar Singh informed Parminder Singh that for some time now the pain in his back and leg has been steadily getting worse. According to the jail manual, high risk prisoners should have access to medical attention. We urge you, the Sangat, to join SOPW in demanding that the authorities admit Jagtar Singh Hawara into an appropriate hospital without delay and that he be given the help he so obviously needs. Please also keep Jagtar Singh Hawara, a great hero of our nation who has spent the best years of his life in jail, in your prayers and may Waheguru bless him with a speedy recovery.
