Malaysia Hindu Sangam is a brain child of the late Shri K. Paramalingam KMN. He was a barrister at law and was then the Director General of Public Trustee Department. He was greatly assisted by the late Shri K. Ramanathan, a lawyer by profession and an ardent Hindu. Shri K. Ramanathan was the president of Malaysian Indian Congress from 1950 – 1951. He was also the founder of Malaysian Arulneri Thirukkuttam.
By the encouragement and inspiration given by the learned saintly Shri K. Ramanathan, Shri K. Paramalingam moved fast and gathered few devout Hindus, who liked to serve the course of Hinduism and society at large. As a result of his untiring efforts, Shri. K. Paramalingam, Shri. G. V. Thevar, Shri Hari Chand Saradha, Shri. S. Palanivel Pillai and Shri S. Dhuraiappah, met on 15 April 1963. At the meeting, they formed an ad-hoc committee.
This committee then prepared the groundwork to form an organization for Hindus in Malaysia. Finally, in January 1965, the ad-hoc committee organised a seminar of all Hindu organisations and some leading temples met at the famous Maha Mariamman temple, High Street (now Jalan Tun H. S. Lee) Kuala Lumpur. At this meeting, the name Malaysia Hindu Sangam was chosen and it was officially registered under the Companies Act on 23 January 1965.
