BREAKING NEWS – Bhai Major Singh imprisoned in a false police case at the age of 14 is released after 23 Years.
SOPW are delighted to announce the release of Bhai Major Singh who is believed to have been the longest serving Sikh political prisoner, serving in total twenty three years and one month in jail despite being totally innocent. SOPW have been supporting Bhai Major Singh since he first came to our attention in 2009. We would like to thank those who also contributed in securing the release including Ex-Jathedar Jasbir Singh Rode, Bhai Parmjit Singh Dhadhi, Bhai Rajinderpal singh (R.P Singh) Adv Jaspal Singh Manjhpur and many others.

A New Zealand Sikh community leader who had been arrested in India on terrorism charges has been released after spending two months in prison.

Manpreet Singh, a former president of the New Zealand Sikh Society Auckland and a JP, had faced multiple false charges including alleged involvement in seditious activities and attempted murder of a jail guard.

Statement re 6th June 1984 – Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara
In rememberance of June 1984 – let us recognise our responsibilities
Khalsa Ji, it was the month of June 1984, when the Gangu brahmin’s brood sitting on Delhi’s throne attacked Sri Harminder Sahib in an attempt to make Sikh’s realise their place. This attack was a statement that this country is for Hindus and if the Sikhs want to live in it then they have to be slaves. If they ask about rights their reply will be delivered via guns and tanks.

For the first time after five and a half years imprisonment, on Monday evening Bhai Baljeet Singh Bhau walked out from Tihar jail without shackles and without the tight security of armed police officers and straight into the arms of his awaiting father S. Dilip Singh who had travelled from Panjab along with his other son Bhai Gurpeet Singh and our SOPW volunteer to greet him, surrounded by crowds of well-wishers. Our volunteer described the moment Bhai Baljeet Singh emerged from inside the prison as being truly surreal.

SOPW are delighted to announce the bail release of Bhai Baljeet Singh Bhau. Bhai Baljeet Singh has been incarcerated in Tihar Jail New Delhi since 2008 accused of the attempted murder of the fake Sirsa Wala Baba – Ram Rahim. The bail application was initially submitted by our lawyer Adv Manjinder Singh over six months ago but in light of the continued needless delays during the proceedings and at times the attitude of the presiding judges we were beginning to lose hope that the application would at all be accepted. 

Bhai Baljeet Singh Bhau stops at a dhaba on his return to Panjab having learnt that what the Judge had passed as a bail was later changed to a three month parole, he also releases a press statement thanking SOPW, condemning Parmjit Sarna and has a message for Sri Akal Takht Sahibs Jathedar.

While we all will be remembering and respectfully commemorating the shaheeds of the Sikh nation this month, SOPW would also like to bring to your attention, 

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa,

A(n)mrith Peevai Jis No Aap Peeaaeae 
They alone drink in this Amrit, whom the Lord Himself inspires to do so.

Amritsar Prison, Thursday 28th June 2012, a historic and profound event took place in the walls of this jail: an Amrit Sanchaar - Sikh Baptism ceremony - was held for the very first time within the confines of the prison.

A total of 38 individuals, 35 men (Singhs - Lions) and 3 women (Kaurs - Princesses), arose in unity to illuminate a place as dark as a prison to tread a path of righteousness and join the Khalsa Panth (Sikh nation). The newly initiated had been inspired by the Parchaar (preaching) practiced by Bhai Pal Singh, a French citizen who has himself been physically tortured and illegally detained since July 2010, whose simple yet highly eloquent messages of "refrain from all drugs, honour women, and educate yourself" resonated with both the prisoners and wardens alike.
