Bhai Gurinder Singh

All of you, unknown to us, Guru's loved ones are not less than angels for those Sikh youths who are badly affected by the highhandedness of the Indian Government. I would like to say to all of you brothers Sat Sri Akal and Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. Khalsa Ji I would like to say thank you from my heart for the help you have provided to me until now, and the help that you are providing. I pray to Akal Purakh (God) for your high spirit (Chardi Kala) so that you carry on helping people imprisoned like me. I would like to tell you about myself, how the corrupt police have put me in this situation. How in the greed to increase the number of medals on their uniforms, they put false charges on me and many other Sikh youth like me to fill the prisons.

Khalsa Ji my name is Sardar Gurinder Singh, I have parents in my house and a younger brother, who is studying. My father had a job which he lost because of my police case, so he somehow accepted it and got busier in doing the household chores, repairing our house. My father is not doing any other job apart from following my cases. I get a date (court date) everyday. There are almost 5 cases on me so my father is unable to concentrate on any other work. My household is financially self-sufficient to take care of itself, but not wealthy enough to follow up my cases. One of the reasons is because as well as framing a case on me, they have also put case on my whole family (which is ongoing). The police also took my personal possessions including my computer, religious books amongst other things. We had to take out loans to bail out my parents. The debt has steadily increased, and I do not know much it is. My family does not tell about the loan money, even when I ask, they only say that I should not worry about these details. They also say Guru Sahib will solve everything.

My mother has a Government job which helps to run the household, but the lack of money stops her from following up my cases. Khalsa Ji I expect and hope from you, that as you have helped me up until now, you will carry on in future and also follow my cases too.

On the 18/02/2010 I was sentenced five years, I will apply for bail within the 30days time limit. Before I was in prison, after studying I worked as a taxi driver, which was my business. I used to also take part in Sikh talks and seminars. When the news broke out about the Sirsa Wale, who tried to imitate Guru Gobind Singh Ji by copying the Amrit Sanchar (initiation) and clothing, the Sikh community stood up against him, I proudly took part in the protests against Sirsa Wala. This is how I caught the attention of the police. Then one day the police arrested me from my village, when I had gone to see my grandfather. They tortured me for a whole month and a half. They ripped my groin, electrocuted my private parts, rolled logs on my body and refused to let me sleep (sleep deprivation). They then put a case on my family, to torture me mentally. They made my condition so bad, that blood would come out when I would urinate. The police did not provide any medical help, yet this torture would continue. Then they kept moving me to different police stations, sometimes Hoshiarpur, Ravilpindi, sometimes Ludhiana, Phagwara, Amritsar Malmandi, and they would continue the torture there as well. They would continue to put more cases on me whilst being in there custody. There is another place in Jagraon, there they tortured me relentlessly. Khalsa Ji I don't understand why the government so badly wants to kill the Sikh youth again, as they have done in the past decades. Today the same conditions continue, no political party is getting involved or speaking against these issues, instead they remain silent. It is very rare to see someone come forward or help the youth who are being troubled by the government. Khalsa Ji, what can I write, this is all I am, what I've written, that is all I want to say I don't have the appropriate words to write about you, except thank you for helping and supporting us. In saying all this I would like to ask for forgiveness for any mistakes.
