Jassi Kaur Sidhu was born into a family where women are second class citizens, men are in charge of family honor, and women are blamed if they do anything to tarnish it.
Her birth wasn’t officially registered by her parents until she was over a year old because her parents were much more focused on her brother. Jassi’s mother, Malkiat Kaur, and father, Bakhtaur Singh, were part of a group who moved from the Punjab’s Doaba region of India to the Canadian West Coast. They settled in the Fraser Valley and began farming.
Jassi’s uncle, Surjit Singh Badesha, was the undisputed head of the family. He decided that the family would pool their resources to buy about nine acres of land and operate a blueberry farm. It was a success and they made millions of dollars.

As she grew up, Jassi’s life was simple and revolved around school, prayers and household chores. She was to be auctioned off to the highest bidder for marriage.
But Jassi fell in love with a Kabaddi player and sometime rickshaw driver. They married secretly and when the family found out, they hired hitmen.
Join us at the quiet end for the case of the honor killing of Jassi Sidhu. Her only crime was love and her punishment was a brutal death.
