On September 6, 1995, the Punjab police abducted, tortured, and murdered human rights defender Jaswant Singh Khalra because he exposed the disappearances and killings of thousands of Sikhs by the Punjab police.
In his last speech made to a Canadian audience Jaswant Singh Khalra discusses his investigations into the disappearances and his readiness to die to expose the truth about these crimes.
“A mother’s heart is such that even if she sees her son’s dead body, she does not accept that her son has left her,” says Khalra. “And those mothers who have not even seen their children’s dead bodies, they were asking us: at least find out, is our son alive or not?”
