Professor Davinderpal Singh Bhullar - My Message to India.

Most of you will know of the case of Professor Davinderpal Singh Jee Bhullar, a Sikh political prisoner who today was moved from the hospital where he was staying to a jail in preparation to be hanged, after the Indian Supreme Court rejected his clemency appeal.

If you don't know about this innocent man who will be sent to the gallows, or if you want detailed information on what exactly Bhullar's case is, please visit this page and educate yourselves.

This is my message to the Indian Government.

How can you justify the death penalty for a man who has served a life sentence, the majority of which was spent in solitary confinement, whose confession was signed under torture and was later withdrawn, whose alleged crime is not supported by any solid eyewitness accounts or reliable evidence, whose case involved 133 witnesses, all of which could not identify him, who suffered a mental breakdown due to the atrocities committed against him, who, before being moved to a jail to be hanged, was residing in a hospital?

India, your legal system is a joke. The world's largest democracy? Hypocrisy more like... banning a film unveiling the truth about the government, and yet failing to ban the death penalty? You hang the man with a beard and a turban because he tried to expose the truth, and yet you let the killers and rapists who murdered minority groups run your government and walk free?

You're fuelling the revolution, India. You're digging your own grave. If we do celebrate Vaisakhi with a shaheedi this year, rest assured that when one Singh falls, thousands more rise in his place. You can kill the revolutionary, but you can't kill the revolution. The world is watching you... you lose your standing in the world bit by bit every time you commit an atrocity against your minorities.

Long Live the Revolution!!
