Giani Mahinder Singh Khalsa

Giani Mahinder Singh Ji Khalsa (5th Sep 1941 - 2nd Sep 2012), more affectionately known as “Khalsa Ji” was an institution in the corridors of Sikh Missionary work – Sikhi Parchar in this part of the world – Singapore & Malaysia. He travelled extensively to promote the message of Sikhism to the Sikh Youth around the world. He was extremely well-versed with the sacred scriptures of the Guru Granth Sahib and had extensive knowledge on Gurbani and was admired and well-respected by many.

Khalsa Ji was born in Ipoh in 5th September 1941 to Mata Dharam Kaur Ji. His father Sardar Bhagwan Singh Ji, shared a close relationship with the revered Sant Baba Sohan Singh Ji of Malacca from whom the family gained much spiritual guidance. Khalsa Ji started learning kirtan at the tender age of 12 years from Ragi Bhai Badhan Singh Ji (Head Granthi Sahib at Gurdwara Kuala Kangsar, Perak, Malaysia). Though Khalsa Ji worked in Kuala Lumpur, he never failed to visit Sant Baba Sohan Singh Ji in Malacca whenever he possibly could. These visits got him closer to Sant Ji and they started doing sangats together in Malacca.

Khalsa Ji was eventually transferred to Batu Gajah Land Office in Perak, Malaysia. When Sant Ji grew gravely ill Khalsa Ji would stay with him in the hospital nightly, attending to his needs. Sant Ji found Khalsa Ji’s sewa remarkable. Sant Ji then made him promise that he would commit himself to the panth, extending out a hand of promise. This was obviously reciprocated by Khalsa Ji in the presence of Late S. Ranjit Singh and his wife who was a distant niece of Sant Ji. From that day on, Khalsa Ji kept to his promise and carried on a legacy of work.
