Anil Kant is an internationally known Popular singer, musician, writer and worshiper of Christ. He has recorded 12 albums in the past 6 years. He is the founder of ‘Anil Kant International Ministries’ (AKIM). ‘Ibadat karo’ is one of his popular songs.
He comes from a Hindu Punjabi family where he was taught all the Hindu Scriptures, since a very young age. Despite being raised in a spiritual family, Anil felt something missing in his life. Since music was an integral part of his life, he decided to make it as his career. Anil’s wife also loved music and was inclined to it. Anil was writing songs and was composing music for his Christian friends, when he came across this well known Bible verse: ” I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me”(John 14:16). This statement, made by Jesus Christ, had a very huge impact on Anil. That very night, Anil felt as if Jesus came to him and said that he is the way, the truth and the life. The word became so real to him. He surrendered his Life to Jesus.
Anil’s wife saw a gradual change in her husband. She resisted his new found God, at first, but Anil asked her if she knew what will happen to her if she died today. He also asked her to search for the answers in any Scriptures. When Reena also read about the Jesus Christ and the cross of him that had forgiven her sins, she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour.
Today, Anil’s entire family serves Jesus and and shares the good news of Christ, through various media. His daughter Shreya Kant, is also a blessed singer in India. This family is the first one to host a Hindi program on God’s Channel.
