The date February 2nd, 1947, is dear to MSU, as it was on this day MSU was established at No.3, Club Road, Kuala Lumpur under the auspices of the Selangor Sikh Union. The Convention was attended by representatives from several states such as Selangor, Johor, Perak, Malacca and Negeri Sembilan.The first President of MSU was the late Sar. Bhagwan Singh and Secretary was Master Ganga Singh.

The main objectives of MSU were as follows:

a) To promote the unity amongst the Malaysian Sikh Community and to further religious, educational, economic, physical and political advancement.

b) To represent and express the view of the Sikhs on matters affecting their religious, political, public and economic welfare.

c) To do everything possible to raise the status of Sikhs and to develop and maintain healthy social and cultural, between the Sikhs and other communities.

d) To do everything possible in helping not only the children of Sikh’s but of all races in excelling in education.

Over the years like everything else MSU has evolved and grown, today MSU boasts branches in 11 states.

The Sikhs in Malaysia have also the independent of thought, the resilience and the creativity to tackle their problems and challenges in an intelligent and supremely innovative matter.

It is this faith and confidence that motivates the resurgent Malaysian Sikh Union to unite the young and old, the traditional and modern, the entire society in a programme for clear objectives and goals within the framework of national growth and development.
