    Ex serviceman Mohinder Singh has been killed by thugs in New Jersey, whilst in service, Mohinder was awarded several gallantry medals for his bravery while serving in Siachin Glacier with the Sikh Regiment.
    Modinder Singh’s wife applied for a visa to attend his funeral to perform the last rights, her application has been refused.
    Mohinder’s widow Paramjit Kaur said she is unable to join her husband as she has not been granted visa by the embassy, but had re-applied when her husband died
    Mohinder Singh’s, brother Jagtar, told media how devastated the family are at this refusal by the embassy. “The embassy staff told us that the visa could not be issued before six months,” he said Jagtar Singh
    In a desperate attempt to speed up the process Jagtar added that they had also written to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs but were yet to receive a reply.
    Mohinder Singh had left the army in 2001 and gone to New Jersey where he ran three grocery shops, he was killed in one of them during a robbery.

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!
