Britain's first Asian Sikh Judge :Sir Mota Singh,QC-Legal Advisor



His Honour Judge Mota Singh, was named for a knighthood in the British Queen's New Year's Honours List.
Aged 79, now officially known as Sir Mota Singh, was knighted for "services to the administration of justice, community relations and to the voluntary sector". He hit the headlines in 1967 when he appeared in a British court as a turban-wearing barrister. In 1982, upon becoming Britain's first Asian judge, he again insisted on wearing his turban rather than the traditional judge's wig to court.

Mota Singh is a longstanding senior member of the Bebe Nanaki CharitableTrust Board and is a highly valued and respected member of the Board of Trustees. Mota Singh provides advice on all legal matters within the Trust and was appointed by Bibi Ji her self.
