Remembrance Ceremony : Monday 18 August 2014 : 12 NOON
Venue: The Park, Near the Crane Pub, 7 North Hyde Road, Hayes.

Born on 18 August 1967, Harminder Jhaghra was only a young man in his prime and planning for a bright and happy future with his wife when he was tragically murdered on 7 February 1996 near the Crane Public House in Hayes, Middlesex. Soon after the killing, one of the main suspects fled the country only to be arrested eighteen years later when he returned to the UK earlier this year and will face a trial at a Crown Court this autumn.
The sad fact is that Harminder, despite the tragedy, would have been forgotten. However his family never gave up their struggle for justice. For nearly two decades they kept the pressure on the police and kept his name alive.
To commemorate his 47th Birthday, the family and their friends have organised a remembrance ceremony at the site where the incident took place.
The ceremony will include:
- One Minute Silence, followed by family and friends laying flowers
- His mother will be pacing a LOVEHEART in the colours of yellow and white
- His brothers will place the LIVERPOOL FC SHIELD – Harminder’s favourite footballteam. Harminder was involved in a football tournaments and an ardent supporter of the Asian Football League
- His sisters will place a cushion with a RAKHRI representing love and honour for their brothers. The Festival of RAKHEE takes place is on 10 August this year
- His nieces and nephews will be placing a cushion with a Guardian Angel
- The release of 48 rainbow coloured balloons – Harminder would have been 47 this year and extra balloon represents one for luck.
The Ceremony will close with a press conference.
Please join us on to remember Harminder and ensure Justice for him
