Empowering our sisters with the gift of skills...

Sikh Relief has held its latest graduation ceremony for those underprivileged ladies who have been learning at our Jhakharwal Kirat Kamai centre in Faridkot, Panjab.

The successful young women were each presented with certificates and a brand new commercial sewing machine, enabling them to immediately use their skills to begin learning a living with dignity and self-respect.

Kiret Kamai Project Kapurthala

Fantastic turnout this Christmas morning for the sponsored 8-mile walk from Gravesend's Guru Nanak Darbar Gurudwara for Sikh Relief's Kirat Kamai project in memory of Mata Gujhar Kaur and the Chotte Sahibzade.

We are humbled and forever gratfeful to Shera and Jag Singh of the Gravesend Sikh community for their support, dedication and effort and all those beautiful souls who have chosen to commit their Christmas morning to walking 8 miles for such a good cause.

Misuse of crime prevention laws continue...

Arrested the day before the 35th anniversary of the Indian Army invasion of Sri Darbar Sahib complex, Bhai Nishan Singh Poonia has been in jail awaiting trial for alleged possession of firearms.

A fact of note is that Nishan Singh's father, Bhai Dara Singh was the formal driver of Shaheed Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and was actually made Shaheed himself at the hands of India's communally charged and politicised paramilitary forces.

Another Bandi achieves freedom...

Approaching the end of the year with nothing but positivity the Sikh Relief team reached Nabha Maximum Security Jail late yesterday to receive Bhai Ratandeep Singh who had been finally released from the prison after almost 5 years of incarceration for crimes he was alleged to have committed.

As per common standards when persecution of Sikh prisoners is being implemented in low-intensity torture situations, during his original trial Rattandeep Singh had not been produced by the Punjab police for five consecutive hearings during 2015/16 keeping him in prison for over a year unnecessarily and preventing his ability to have an effective trial and prove his innocence.

Referendum 2020 accused

A not so complicated man, Bhai Malkit Singh drives a bus and belongs to a family that lives honestly and with only as much as they require. He and his wife have two children who live in a simple home, the condition of which is not good, but it is home to a family where love is ever-present.

That loving peace was broken one morning by the notorious Panjab Police when they arrested Bhai Malkit Singh, accusing him of supporting, organising and advocating for the Referendum 2020 being organised from the diaspora.

Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Gravesend is raising money on Christmas day to help revolutionise the lives of underprivileged women across Panjab.

By helping Sikh Relief with their Kirat Kamai centres they are enabling vocational courses to be taught to ladies who will in turn be able to feed their families as self-employed tailors and escape poverty.

A NRI Story...

30-year-old non-resident Indian Bhai Harpreet Singh Happy had been living in Singapore for 10 years, working hard to provide for his family having left the corrupt and unemployed desert of despair which is Panjab.

On a visit back to spend time with his family, he was arrested, abused and finally charged without any evidence of being involved with the propagation of the supposed Referendum 2020.

The jail administration writes a letter to police...

Bibi Amritpal Kaur has ended her hunger strike after just 7 days in protest at the politically motivated chicanery of the notorious Panjab Police.

Arrested and charged with various false claims by Mohali police using the Prevention of Unlawful Activities act she has been incarcerated in Patiala Jail for over a year.

Arrested along with 10 other persons, they stand accused of being members of Babbar Khalsa and several cases in Punjab and Rajasthan, including murder, sedition, illegal activities.

Bhai Gurwinder Singh Gopi in Chardikla!

India's professed freedoms and democracy continue to wreak havoc on the lives of those blessed by their Guru with sovereignty in thought and deed. There remains a disconnect and procedural tyranny that causes those who advocate or simply discuss human rights issues or even publicly disagree with the policies of the Indian government to be oppressed and jailed.

Sikh Relief helping harvest a brighter future!

Over 100 small holding farmers of Chak Vadhala village and surrounding areas of the Tehsil Shahkot, district Jalandhar, who had watched their futures flooded and washed away by the flood waters deliberately released under orders of the Bhakra Beas Management Board, having been assisted with soil treatments and seeds have now recieved fertiliser and soil nutrients for their crops.

Sikh Relief continues supporting Bhai Gursewak Singh Babbla's family!

The word repression has never been so aptly used as to describe the treatment endured by Bhai Gursewak Singh Babbla and his experience of the last 37 years. Subject to over 70 false cases he has been remanded and beaten case after case only to be rearrested upon release and made subject to new false cases.

From allegations of crime as per the Indian Penal Code and more seriously charged under the world disgraced TADA black laws, he has beaten all cases and is set to beat the current two cases he faces as he remains remanded to Delhi's Maximum Security Prison, the notorious Tihar Jail.

Sikh Relief helps facilitate the Anand Kharaj of Bhai Khunkhuna's daughter

Recently released from Nabha Max Security prison Bhai Balwinder Singh Khunkhuna has celebrated the Anand Kharaj of his daughter.

Bhai Balwinder Singh had been arrested by the Sadar police 13th June 1999 and eventually remanded to Hoshiarpur jail 4 days later, having been charged with smuggling of explosives eventually being sent to Ludhiana jail.

Kirat equals Kamai

As another class of graduates complete their 6-month course through Sikh Reliefs Kirat Kamai centres its graduation ceremony time again.

Our Kirat Kamai program and dedicated centres have been awakening the earning potential of underprivileged women of Panjab's not so established and balanced families. Teaching them the skills to become self-reliant and take pride in themselves and their work.

FAREWELL TO OUR JATHEDAR JI

Gurmukh Pyare, Guru Dulareh, imbued in Naam Bani, Saint Soldier Bhai Sahib Bhai Raghbir Singh Ji, Jathedar of the Akhand Kirtani Jatha UK passed from this life to become one with Guru Ji. November 19 2019, marked a transition from this mortal life. This was followed by Jathedar Ji's remains were cremated on Saturday 30th November in Warwickshire UK.

The occasion was graced by the Guru Pyari Guru Roop Sadh Sangat from the UK and abroad, united in their love of Sikhi and GurSikhs like him. The most fitting farewell to an entity as pure as Bhai Sahib was filled with Bhai Sahib Ji's lifelong message of Baani, Shabad Kirtan and pyaar.

For many years Jathedar Ji gave enormously to others, helping them to find greater fulfillment in their relationship with guruji. Perhaps one of his greatest accomplishments was the way he carried forward and enriched the legacy for the future.

There is a deep love and connection that Gursikhs all over the world will cherish for many years to come. We all mourn and celebrate the extraordinary life of this remarkable souls who devoted his life to Guru Ji.

Jathedar Ji always promoted Naam, Bani, Vichaar and to hold faith in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Jathedar Ji had a unique way of connecting people; young or old he treated everyone with respect. Myself and the entire Sikh Relief team received so much guidance and support from Jathedar Ji and we are proud and grateful for his honest sewa in the Panth.

Unique sacrifice of Dhan Guru Tegbahadur Sahib Ji

In the annals and traditional understanding of Martyrdom the Martyrdom of Sahib Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji Maharaj is unique.

Unique because nowhere in the history of the world has it been seen that a Prophet of one faith and dharam fought against oppression and for the protection of another's religion.

Sikh Relief continues to support...

Currently incarcerated in Amritsar Prison, Jatinder Singh Goldy of Khadoor Sahib was arrested and accused of being allegedly involved in organising and promoting the so-called Referendum 2020 campaign.

Our volunteers are our Jindh and Jaan...

Long time Sikh Relief sevadar Bhai Surinder Singh, our environmental project coordinator, has been given the ultimate test of accepting the hukkam of the Almighty Giver of Life and Breath.

Flood-affected farmers of Panjab receive agricultural lifeline...

Since the flooding of Panjab by the Bhakra Beas Management Board several months ago, Sikh Relief volunteer teams have been helping the families most affected. Helping with rations, medical and even rebuilding of homes.

Having made very good progress on those elements of our projects the last month has seen the Sikh Relief teams work incredibly hard with farmers to engage in the wheat sowing season to ensure the land has been adequately turned, restored and prepared for sowing and planting.
