Bhai Amritpal’s advocacy on behalf of minorities in the region of Punjab has been influential in promoting Sikh political and religious rights. He has strongly voiced his concerns that the Indian government is not protecting the constitutional rights of Sikhs, and he is willing to bear great risks to bring attention to their plight.
