Avtar Sadiq Singh We Salute You


Avtar Sadiq Singh

Avtar Sadiq Singh 13/04/41– 28/01/18.


Avtar is an individual who was instrumental in creating our organisation back in 1967. Following an illness Avtar resigned his official position as vice chair but returned recently to being an active board member. He was respectfully awarded TREC’s plaque for challenging race discrimination for 50+ years.


Those of you who know Avtar will be in agreement that he lived to champion ‘racial justice’ in all its guises. This is evidenced through Avtar’s timeless publications, his attraction to meaningful campaigns, his addresses from multiple platforms, the use of the pen in poetry, and the numerous meetings attended here and abroad.


After a sudden illness and subsequent heart failure, this remarkable man is no longer with us in person but this legend will remain present through our memories and his countless material.


The Race Equality Centre pays respect and offers our condelence to Avtar’s wife Gurdarshan and their son Arvinder during this sad time. To see video of Avtar accepting his plaque from TREC please click here:
