Bhai Sahib Bhai Mohinder Singh

Bhai Sahib Bhai Mohinder Singh is the mukhi-Sewadar (the main volunteer) of the Sikh organisation called Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha, which has its head office in Birmingham, UK. He has been linked to this organisation since 1974 when he met the founder and spiritual inspiration of the organisation, Sant Baba Puran Singh, Kericho-wala in Kenya. Bhai sahib is a graduate of a UK university and professionally recognised as an excellent civil engineer. He has undertaken many large scale projects involving the construction of petroleum refineries in the 70's and 80's and then large-scale housing project in Africa and in particular Zambia. Bhai sahib was living in Zambia when he first met Baba Puran Singh ji and so Bhai sahib ji was fondly known as "Zambia-wala Bhai Sahib" in the 80's and early 90's by members of the Sangat.

In 1995 that Bhai Sahib was called to take on the responsibilities of this Jatha (organisation) when Bhai Norang Singh passed away suddenly in early 1995. His first main task was to successfully complete the UK sangat's project of re-gilding the Sri Harimandir Sahib. Since those times, with Bhai sahibs energy and dedication and Waheguru's kirpa, the Sangat and Jatha have completed many important projects of the Panth.

One of Bhai sahib recent developments has been the involvement of the Sangat in further Interfaith dialogue. In this respect, the Jatha has been involved with CPWR , Religions for Peace, UN NGO Programmes, etc. In 2004, the efforts of Bhai sahib resulted in a first for Sikhi when on the occasion of the 400th celebration of the first prakash (installation) of Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the Jatha took part in the Forum 2004 in Barcelona. The legacy of the event was the serving of Langar to the many thousand who attended the Interfaith Conference. This was a most gratifying undertaking and all who took part remember it with fond memory and utter praise on the Guru for blessing of such Sewa.

Sant Balbir Singh Ji Seechewal has taken up the task of cleaning Bein river:


Religous procession on the bank of bein

To restore purity of natural resources of water, rivers, streams, beins, etc. To stop the inlet of polluted waters of sewerages and factories into the rivers. To prepare paths on the banks of the rivers, and beautify them with flowers plants.

 

  • Sant Balbir Singh Ji Seechewal believes that man is the supreme creation of God. God has made man in His own image. What is even more important is that God has given to man a freewill and capacity to decide for himself and thus has made him a responsible being. Here lies the uniqueness of man's being. But man should not try to assert his separation form God (i.e., his ego) in opposition to his unity with Him

Man can be called man only if he rises above his narrow self and works for the welfare of the whole humanity, remembers God the Almighty and does the naam simran, helps the needy and recognizes One God in all......Sant Balbir Singh
