Earlier, the Labour Party had also slammed India over the violent attacks on Muslims and urged the British government to look into the matter and intervene.

Calling the matter extremely worrying, Jonathan Ashworth, a Labour Party MP from Leicester South wrote a letter last week to foreign secretary and prime ministerial hopeful Jeremy Hunt saying that many of his constituents had raised concerns that the Indian government was not doing enough to curb the attacks.

“The situation in India is extremely worrying. There have been reports of religiously motivated killings, assaults, riots, discrimination, vandalism and actions restricting the right of individuals to practice their religious beliefs", Jonathan Ashworth wrote in his letter.

Responding to the letter, the British Foreign Office said that it condemns all instances of discrimination because of religion or belief, "regardless of the faith or country involved".

"We are working to improve the situation for Muslim minorities in India. Our 'Empowering Muslim youth' project reached 150 young people, 20 teachers and over 100 educational institutions. We have also enabled training for 900 minority students on faith issues in 06 universities across North India," it said.
