Suhi Saver makes history as Roy's trust honours first Punjabi media outlet Featured

Suhi Saver, a Punjab based media outlet, has made history as the 
Zindabad Trust, started by world renowned author Arundhati Roy, honoured 
its founder Shiv Inder Singh with a financial assistance of Rs. 1,00,000.

Suhi Saver covers alternative politics in Punjab, and is known for its 
pro people journalism. The outlet survives on individual donations. 
Singh does not accept government ads or financial aid from big 
corporations or politicians.

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. He 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 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.
