    September 6 this year marks the 15th anniversary of the disappearance of S. Jawant Singh Khalra, a human rights lawyer, from his home in Amritsar. Witnesses saw him being kidnapped in broad daylight by Indian para-military officers. Since then, witnesses have also seen him tortured. He is believed to have been murdered in custody.
    To date, his murderers - government employees who have been identified by witnesses - remain free.
    The following link will take you to a video of the last speech he gave in the free world outside India - specifically, in Toronto, Canada

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
