“This is an excellent opportunity to not only celebrate the success of the British Sikh community, but also to raise a range of issues where Sikhs have concerns. These include issues relating to the UK Government interface with the British Sikh community, various Sikh identity issues, treatment of Sikhs and Sikh organisations in the UK and numerous long standing human rights concerns. The debate is also helpful on the back of the debate on 28 February on the Abolition of the Death Penalty in India” reads the statement.

“The debate will be led by Gareth Johnson MP (Con) – Dartford. Although there is very little notice for the debate the Sikh Federation (UK) said they expect more MPs to take part in the debate than those that took part on 28 February as the APPG for British Sikhs has much broader appeal” Gurjeet Singh, Secretary of Sikh Federation (UK) told Sikh Siyasat News (SSN).

“The Sikh Federation (UK) will be sending a briefing to MPs early next week for the debate on Wednesday 13 March that will take place prior to Prime Minister’s Question Time” he added.

He further informed that the Sikh Council UK is working closely with the Sikh Federation (UK) to help brief MPs on the range of issues that are likely to come up” he informed.
