WITH THE SANGAT’S HELP, AMARJIT SINGH MARORI TAKES THE FIRST STEPS TO RESTART HIS LIFE 

As part of the SOPW policy of REHABILITATION, we are pleased to announce the purchase of a tractor for Bhai Amarjit Singh Marori.

Amarjit Singh, who is in his early thirties, comes from the village of Marori in District Patiala. He was arrested in October 2008 and charged under Section 25, 54 & 59 of the Arms Act and Section 3, 4 & 5 of the Explosives Act.

It was alleged that Amarjit Singh was part of a group (including one lady, Gobind Kaur) plotting to eliminate the Dera Sacha Sauda Chief – Gurmeet Ram Rahim. You may recall that Gurmeet Ram Rahim is a cult leader who is embroiled in scandal and allegations of rape and murder as well as disturbing communal harmony. In 2007, he posed as Guru Gobind Singh holding a fake Amrit ceremony and was accused of blasphemy and hurting Sikh sentiments.

Amarjit Singh is married and has a young family to support. Also living with them is his elderly father, Balwant Singh. With so many mouths to feed and very little income, life in the Marori household was a struggle. Amarjit Singh and his family live below the poverty line. Their family home is virtually uninhabitable and in urgent need of repair. With no schooling or official education, Amarjit Singh was released from Patiala Jail on bail, with no ideas on how to make ends meet.

Following our guidance and advice we arranged to purchase a Swaraj 855 tractor, so that Amarjit Singh could start hiring out his services to farm the land of nearby landowners. Due to his lack of education he does not have many skills, but Amarjit Singh has the grit and determination to work hard and provide for his family.

SOPW philosophy is to enable our political prisoners to live with dignity upon their release from prison. We don’t want our Sikh families to be dependent on handouts, we want them to thrive, not just survive. With Waheguru’s kirpa, Amarjit Singh has now secured a few contracts with local landowners to farm their fields, which in turn will provide him with a steady income. Sangat ji, we could not have done this without your support and together we pray that Amarjit Singh and his family can now begin to dream of an easier and happier future.
