Wrapped in the Indian Tricolour the dead Sarabjit Singh received a hero's welcome which he missed seeing it alive. It is very sad to note that the Indian government failed in its effort to convince Pakistan to release Sarabjit. No matter what went behind the doors of power.
Thousands were present to bid final adieu to the deceased Sarabjit, who languished in a Lahore jail for 22 years and was finally done away with brutally by Pakistani inmates. A very planned way that executed his demise.
It was a scene of people and people everywhere. Even not an inch of space was spared to see the warrior in his town. The scenario was a mega emotional one. The entire village of Bhikiwind thronged to the cremation ground to be part of the final funeral rites.
When the funeral pyre was lit with fire by Dalbir Kaur, sister of the deceased, a unanimous feeling of anguish and anger poured out from those present there. The multitude chanted in unison- "Sabarjit Singh Amar Rahe" (Long Live Sabarjit Singh).
It has become evident, that in the near future, the relationship between Pakistan and India will drop to a huge on-time low.
