Sikhs in British parliament get some screen time

On 7th June Theresa May said that she will change human rights laws if they “get in the way” of tackling terror suspects. She said she wants to do more to restrict the freedom of those posing a threat and to deport foreign suspects.

In the video, you can see two Sikh politicians supporting her. I’m assuming that they are supporters of May. The video has gone viral as it got shared on Facebook and Digg and the distinguished Sikh gentlemen got some good screen time candidly. Even though they are not part of the statement that May made, but unconsciously it sends a very positive message for the image of Sikhs Internationally.

About the statement on human rightsThe UK could seek opt-outs from the European Convention on Human Rights, which it has abided by since 1953.
Labour said the UK would not defeat terrorism “by ripping up basic rights”. The Lib Dems said it was a “cynical” move ahead of Thursday’s election.
The Conservatives have faced criticism over police cuts and questions about intelligence failures following the terror attacks in London and Manchester.
