TRUTH   JUSTICE   FREEDOM

Welcome to SOPW – “The Sikh Organisation for Prisoners Welfare”, a Registered Charity (UK), run by volunteers, working to achieve justice for those, who have been illegally imprisoned and tortured and their families.

SOPW is the only charity in the world whose mandate is solely to ensure the civil rights of Sikh Political Prisoners are ensured in India. Its success and progress is down to the support of the Sangat, we rely on your support to continue and develop this worthy project.

The SOPW Team work tirelessly to bring much needed support and comfort to the many innocent prisoners illegally imprisoned, tortured and languishing in Indian jails without charge or under fabricated charges. SOPW works to achieve justice for them and helps with the welfare of their families, their world is literally turned upside down

SOPW was founded in 2008 by Bhai Balbir Singh Bains who was arrested in 1999 by Delhi police who said they had found a consignment of RDX explosives. However, due to international support for the UK national, the case was taken to the Supreme Court where the judge threw out the charges, calling them a “balloon of falsehoods” after it emerged the RDX in question had come from a police warehouse.

SOPW funds all legal fees that go towards paying for the legal help and lawyers who fight the cases of these innocent prisoners and help them come out and rebuild their lives.
