    AS A MATER OF INTEREST:

    On Sunday 22 April 2012 Bhai Sahib Mohinder Singh Ahluwalia was created a knight by the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI in recognition of his dedicated work for Roman Catholic Sikh relations and for his enthusiastic commitment to working for peace among people of all faiths.

    Why is Bhai Mohinder Singh referred to as "Sahib?"

    Bhai Sahib Bhai Mohnider Singh is a well known Derawala. His cult/dera is located in Birmingham, England and is spread all around from India to Kenya, his birthplace. Normally, the title of Bhai Sahib is bestowed upon a person by the SGPC/Akal Takhat. I have no idea whether or when it was given to him or he took it upon himself. He has been visiting the Vatican since Late Pope John Paul ll. He was there during the Pope's funeral.

    Following is the snippet of it.

    Mahant Mohinder Singh
    (From The Sikh Bulletin October 2001)

    Nishkam Sewak Jatha, Soho Road, Birmingham is a dera. It is not a Gurdwara. Current Mahant is the 3rd in succession, a retired engineer from Africa by profession. He succeeded Naurang Singh, who in turn had inherited it from Puran Singh. Jathedar Manjit Singh had officiated at the funeral of Mahant Naurang Singh. People wait in line to touch Mahant Mohinder Singhs’ feet and he blesses them. Visit to the real guru GGS comes later. Some might even prostate before him as we saw Amar Singh’s Principal Rajinder Singh Sandhu and Amarjit Singh Sachdev prostate before Amar Singh on the bare cement floor in Roseville in 1993. Mohinder Singh is engaged in taking cash and gold from hardworking Sangat in Birmingham and gold plating plaster at Hazoor Sahib, a place that resembles a Hindu Temple rather than a Sikh historical Gurdwara. Hazoor Sahib has become a scandal. Dasam Granth is displayed along with Sri Guru Granth Sahib and accorded greater importance. It costs Rs. 2,101 for the Akhand Path of Dasam Granth but only Rs. 900 for that of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Hazoor Sahib, ignoring Jathedar Vedanti, is soliciting original documents on Dasam Granth so that they can publish more ‘authentic’ copies. See the letter by their Jathedar on this page. (See Sikh Bulletin Dec. 2000 and Jan. 2001) (See Mohinder Singh’s role in Ramkatha affair on this page).
