    The body of brave Sikh hero, who was stabbed to death, will retune to the Punjab today, accompanied by his father.
    Satwinder Singh was stabbed to death as he chased robbers, who had been robbed a lady on January 8.
    Three men were arrested by police but have been allowed bail. No further arrests have been made
    Cllr Inder Singh Jamu said “The untimely death of late Satwinder Singh has earned great recognition for this act of Bravery which has earned enormous fame to Sikhs particularly in Sikh uniform Punjabis and Indians UK.. Keeping in view his bravery, Prince Charles, Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Leader of the Borough of Barking and Dagenham Mr Smith who is my Ward colleague, Police Commander and many more leaders of various organisations have sent a massage of condolence and sympathy to the family of departed soul Satwinder Singh’s family and Sikh community as a whole at Gurdwara Singh Sabha London East Barking. T
    “The leader of borough of Barking & Dagenham Cllr Liam Smith has kindly agreed to my request that a resolution to recognise the Bravery of Satwinder Singh will be passed in the next Assembly of the Council. Sardar Pakhar Singh father of Satwinder Singh of Village Dholanwal District Ludhiana arrived here on 22 January to take the body of his son back home.
    “Bhog ceremony was held on 23 January at Gurdwara Barking which was heavily attended by various organisations and Gurdwaras representatives in spite of international conference on same day at Coventry against the new Sikh Calendar. To provide financial support to the victim’s family money was generously donated from various parts of the country including donations from British people. Ten thousand pounds and two Lacs from individuals who will pay direct to the family in Punjab were collected.
    “A local Funeral Company (A G Butler) who arranges funeral services and charges over one Lac Rupees has conducted a free service as a token of sympathy with Sikh community. You will be surprised to know that the High Commission of India London has kindly offered and agreed to pay and make all arrangement to send the body by Virgin Airways from London to Delhi airport on 26 January that will land early morning on 27 January. In spite of my timely email massage mentioned above it is disappointing that even telephone or letter of sympathy has not been received from SGPC Amritsar.
    “Mr Sarna, president of DGPC has ceased this opportunity and has made necessary arrangements including special car with Sewadars to take body from Delhi Airport to Village Dholanwal. Respect is earned and not given.

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!
