The Sangat gives not only help and support to prisoners, but gives them the two most important things in life, HOPE and a VOICE…

"we are silenced in here, we have no where to go, each day could be our last, and no one does anything unless they’re paid, lawyers never support us unless they get paid, so we suffer for many, many years because we can’t pay them… This is our life…”

Currently SOPW provides monthly support for approximately 100 Sikh political prisoners in India. This monetary support provides for basic amenities such as food.

We regularly communicate (via letters) with the prisoners to ensure their well being, keep updated with developments in their legal cases, to be notified of any urgent needs of their families, and to confirm that they are receiving their monthly payments.

Many of the Sikh political prisoners have been imprisoned in dire conditions for many years, without any support from anyone. Hundreds of miles away from home, these proud Singhs can’t share their pain with their families for fear of further burdening their families already living in difficulty. We urge all Sikhs to at least write one letter to a prisoner, to share their pains and give them a source of moral support.

A selection of letters are listed on the left, translated from Punjabi to share their plight with the Sangat.
