    List of 119 Sikh political prisoners lodged in Indian jails released by Sikh bodies
    By Parmjit Singh

    According to information available with the Sikh Siysat News (SSN) various Sikh organizations and Human Rights bodies have released a list of 119 Sikh political prisoners.

    List of Sikh Political Prisoners

    The list reportedly prepared by Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur has been jointly released by Akali Dal Panch Pardhani, Dal Khalsa, Sikhs for Human Rights and Lawyers for Human Rights International (LFHRI).

    Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur told Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) over phone that the list was released on 10 December, 2013 on the eve of 65th World Human Rights Day.

    The list includes two Sikh political prisoners facing capital punishment or the death sentence while 16 are facing life imprisonment. According to this list there are 101 Sikh political prisoners who have been sentenced to 7 or 10 years of imprisonment by Indian Courts.

    The full list can be seen as a jpeg image at the story site. The image so small that even after enlarging it to 800 pixels it is still unreadable. Better to view the original by using the little magnifying glass app to enlarge the image enough to read the names.

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!
