Suhi Saver– a Punjab based media outlet has made a history as the Zindabad Trust started by world renowned author Arundhati Roy picked it up for the award.

Shiv Inder Singh who runs Suhi Saver website that covers alternative politics in Punjab is known for his pro people journalism.

Singh has widely covered issues that are generally ignored by the mainstream Punjabi media and has given voice to the oppressed and marginalized sections in the state and even outside Punjab.

Singh was removed by Vancouver-based Red FM Radio because of his critical commentary against growing repression under the Modi government in India although the latter deny the allegations.

Singh has interviewed number of social justice activists such as Seema Azad, Himanshu Kumar and others who have been hounded by the Indian state for standing up against repression. He also came to the rescue of a Dalit groom who was harassed by the so called upper caste goons in Haryana for mounting a horse cart during his marriage. He was instrumental in raising funds for him. His activist wife Kavita Vidrohi is also well known for her advocacy for Dalits, minorities and women and has been a big support to him.

The Zindabad Trust is going to present him Rs. 1,00,000 for his work and contribution to the society.

Gurpreet Singh is a Canada- based journalist who publishes Radical Desi- a monthly magazine that covers alternative politics.
