India fails to provide justice as Sidhu Moosewala parents leave village for ‘few months’

Indian government made tall claims of providing justice to the Sidhu Moosewala parents and family and promised Central government along with the Punjab government would apprehend the killers of the slain gun-touting singer, but despite arrests and arrests of shooters, the confidence of parents of Sidhu Moosewala has been broken with each passing day.

Over one and half month time period has been passed since Sidhu was gunned down in a target attack in Jawaharke village in Mansa district, but Sidhu fans and family members see no significant progress in the case.

A YouTube post update on Sidhu Moosewala’s channel reads, Sidhu Moosewala parents have gone out of village for a Few months.”

The post has raised many eyebrows that despite looking at the Narendra Modi led Central government in India and Bhagwant Mann led AAP government in Punjab, Sidhu Moosewala parents have to move their location.

Media reports claimed that Sidhu Moosewala parents have shifted their location for security reasons, while alternative reports claimed that both Balkaur Singh and Sidhu’s mother decided to shift somewhere else in order to engulf the most painful tragedy of their lives.

Sidhu was killed a day after his security was withdrawn by the Punjab Police among 424 others.

The singer had joined the Congress party last year in December ahead of the assembly elections.

Speaking with Times of India, Balkaur said, “I can’t bear to see my son as a statue at 28. We wait for justice.

The killers, whether sitting on foreign soil or here, should be punished. Why give security to someone who claims openly that he killed Moose Wala?”

The statue has been erected at the place where Sidhu was cremated.

A few days after Sidhu’s death, Balkaur had reacted to rumours on social media and also clarified on contesting elections.

In a nearly minute-long clip on Instagram, he said in Punjabi, “I’m the father of Sidhu Moose Wala. I wanted to tell you a few things. I’m very sad about what I’m seeing on social media. There are different rumours that are going on, don’t believe that. I lost my son recently. I have no intention of contesting any elections. Thank you for supporting me in these difficult times. I have a request for all of you. There is a prayer meeting on June 8, you come I will meet and answer your questions then. Currently, I am not in a state to talk much.” The clip was posted with a folding hands emoji.
