Kulwant Singh was born in the village of Varpal in Amritsar, to Surjit Kaur and Sadha Singh. He was the youngest of 7 brothers and was blessed with Amrit at the age of 7 years. The Varpal family have made huge sacrifices for the Sikh nation as two of Kulwant Singh’s elder brothers, Hardev Singh and Bachittar Singh, were killed by Police in fake encounters in the 1990’s. 

Maajha Kaur is the mother of Sikh political prisoner Balbir Singh Bira. Now in her 80s, Maajha Kaur has lived most of her life in a small impoverished village raising her six children alone as she lost her husband over thirty years ago. Unfortunately due to a lack of medical aid and extreme poverty, over the years four of her sons have died from various diseases and injuries in childhood. Her only remaining son is Balbir Singh Bira who is currently imprisoned in Nabha Maximum Security Jail and his wife is Sukhjinder Kaur, who was only acquitted in August 2014, after spending 5 years locked in Nabha Jail.

Let us introduce you to Preet Kaur...she was setting out on her newly married life to Harjit Singh Kala, when all her hopes and dreams were cruelly snatched away. Instead, for the past 12 years everything has been falling apart around this family due to the wrongful arrest of Harjit Singh in April 2002. Harjit Singh was picked up in Patiala and falsely charged with murder under section 302 and also under the Arms Act sections 25, 54 and 59 of the Indian Penal Code. Since then, he has been behind the bars of Patiala Jail.
