A Light of Justice: Commemorating Jaswant Singh Khalra

(Pleasanton, CA)

On September 6, 2015--the 20th anniversary of the police abduction of human rights defender Jaswant Singh Khalra--Ensaaf released A Light of Justice: Commemorating Jaswant Singh Khalra. This 30-minute film contains interviews with Khalra’s family, as well as archival footage of Khalra when he was investigating secret cremations and disappearances in Punjab.

“[Jaswant Singh Khalra followed] Guru Nanak Sahib's philosophy, to call out injustice, and to call a tyrant a tyrant.” – Navkiran Kaur Khalra

Today, we are re-releasing A Light of Justice: Commemorating Jaswant Singh Khalra with a few edits to the subtitles to reflect the inspiration behind Khalra’s work and sacrifice.

Jaswant Singh Khalra was the light that challenged the darkness of impunity. Ensaaf remains inspired by Jaswant Singh Khalra's life and his family's dedication to the pursuit of truth and justice. Ensaaf is tremendously privileged to be a part of this movement.

Thank you!
