Bhai Harpreet Singh

Charged with a false case and confined in Amritsar prison for over two years, Sikh Relief provided legal assistant to his case while continues to support Harpreet Singh family's welfare.

Before Sikh Relief, there was Bhai Balbir Singh Bains...

Almost 40 years ago Bhai Balbir Singh Bains, a young idealistic Sikh man had watched from Europe as the demand for Panjab's pre-independence rights were not only being denied but his home state was being stripped of its water, electricity rights, two-thirds of its land and even its capital city.

The definition of a Sikh Prisoner of Conscience...

Looking back at our Seva in the wake of Bhai Waryam Singh Ji's passing reminds us of just how privileged and blessed we were to be granted the opportunity to serve a man who had lost so much in life, his family, his future and all because he was accused, tried and sentenced through India’s draconian TADA laws.

The TADA laws reversed the very essence of justice and fair trials, by allowing torture evidence, anonymous witnesses who were exempt from cross-examination by the defence and ultimately a presumption of guilt incumbent upon the defendant to prove their innocence.

Bhai Waryam Singh, who spent 26 consecutive years in jail under India's globally condemned TADA laws, has passed away at his family home in Barbraa village, Uttar Pardesh (UP) on Sunday afternoon.

Its a fact that the warrior Waryam Singh had spent a full 26 consecutive years in jail, without receiving a single day's parole having arrived at jail aged 39 and and being released after much work at 65 years old.

Paralysed by polio from 3 years-old...

Local village Granthi, 35 year old Bhai Ajit Singh, has been living with severe disability since childhood, but having the Guru’s infinite grace over his life he never lost heart nor faith. Married to Sukhbir Kaur, 34, has been a blessing, although she too tragically suffers from the paralysing effects of a childhood polio infection, they support each with warmth and love.

Overturning unlawful withdrawal...

Bhai Harnek Singh Bhapp has succeeded in being granted parole from the Jaipur Central Jail.

Originally named in a 13 April order granting parole, he was among a list of 148 prisoners to be freed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sikh Relief supports those ostracised by media...

Sikh Relief in collaboration with the Ik Noor Society continues to distribute complete essentials and PPE kits across Panjab to support the hundreds of Gursikh yatri's whom returned from Sri Hazoor Sahib, Nanded, and directly into quarantine centres and other facilities caring for suspected and confirmed Covid-19 patients.

Sikh Relief continues to support Bhai Gurpreet Singh Jagowal's family.

Covid-19 slows but can't stop Sikh Relief supporting for Sikh prisoners of conscience and their families. 

Sikh Relief Sevadars have today delivered a tailored support and financial assistance package to the family of Gurpreet Singh Jagowal, convicted in the Ghawdi murder case.

The family of young Gurpreet Singh were grateful and thanked the global Sikh sangat for the continued support and assistance. Sikh Relief reiterated its commitment to those who have been penalised for instinctively obeying their conscience in the face of extreme provocation coupled with political and judicial ambivalence to politicised crimes designed to create a reaction.

Sikh Relief Sewing Aid sevadars in Punjab are working hard to provide village-based medical staff with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), who are not getting any help otherwise.

We are honoured to support our front liners.

Sikh Relief continues to support Bhai Jaspreet (Nihal) Singh's family while he's confined in Nabha maximum security prison.

With the world facing the COVID-19 pandemic with a collective fortitude and Chardikla, Sikh Relief has been given the opportunity to show just how special the sewing centres of our Kirat Kamai programme is.

Having been running centres for the empowerment of young underprivileged ladies to learn sewing, tailoring and embroidery, we have honoured each graduate a complete set up for self-employment and entrepreneurship upon their completion of the courses to help them in a cold and unsupportive environment. Meaning if the obey the command to do honest Kirat (work) they shall earn (Kamai) a living and develop self-esteem and character.

COVID-19 Aid

The homeless and those dependent on goodwill in Panjab have been left without access to support or even food. Sikh Relief have teamed up with the sevadars of Eknoor Nadala to prepare and distribute langar to those who need it most.

Bhai Harchand Singh receives Kirat Kamai grant...

Bhai Harchand Singh Ji, accused of the murder of nakli Nihang Poolha has been receiving financial assistance packages from the Sikh Relief monthly family and education support programmes.

Today we are proud to say that Sikh Relief has ceased these recurring payments and switched his assistance from those programmes to the Kirat Kamai system of self sufficiency. He will now be a self-employed entrepreneur and business owner, enabling his family to flourish to their full potential with a hand up rather than a hand out.

Sikh Relief congratulates our friend, Sikh community representative and political campaigner, Sdr Gurinder Singh Josan CBE, on his historic election to the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party.

Gurinder Singh CBE was victorious in the poll, winning with over 57,000 votes in a bye-election which saw Kier Starmer and Angela Rayner also become the Labour party's leader and deputy leader respectively.

Sikh Relief can not express its outrage in strong enough terms at the despicable and cowardly attack this afternoon, upon the funerals of those who were murdered whilst in contemplative prayer yesterday, at the Sikh Gurdwara in the Afghan capital Kabul.

Sikh Relief will continue sharing our Ardas for the easing of the pain and anguish of those who have suffered and remains ever ready to assist in any way the community wishes or requires.

Sikh Relief stands with #KabulSikhs.

The Sikh Relief teams have taken the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic directly to the street of Panjab amid a government introduced section 144 (strictest level) curfew to combat the potential spread of the Coronavirus across the densely populated state.

With the health system of India not being a single homogeneous entity, it is difficult to image how they could create a unified and solid response in the event of a widespread outbreak of the virus.

While we completely understand the necessity of the restrictions on movement, we also see that the reality is absolute desolation for those who survive and feed their families solely reliant on a daily wage living in effect, hand to mouth.

With Guru Sahib's beant and uppar kirpa, Sikhs Relief have reached the homes of many poor families who are living in difficult conditions, some in makeshift huts and tenements, trapped in a curfew mandated inability to earn a living and therefore food.

Delivering langar to these unfortunate souls has been a great pleasure and blessing, from Nadala in Kapurthala to Sri Anadpur Sahib, we have ensured our slogan, supporting today for a better tomorrow is adhered to and more than just words.

Please continue to help, support and donate at: www.sikhrelief.org and www.justgiving.com/SikhRelief so that we can help those trapped by no fault of their own at this time of global uncertainty, fear and isolation.
