BOLTON South-East MP Yasmin Qureshi has expressed her concern about recent inter-communal violence in the Indian captial Delhi.

It follows Narendra Modi’s BJP government introducing a law that allows non-Muslim migrants from neighbouring states to claim citizenship and its stripping the disputed state of Kasmhir of its special status.

She told Foreign Office minister Nigel Adams in the House of Commons: "In the past five years, Narendra Modi’s BJP Government have chosen a path of systematic discrimination, whether the abrogation of article 35A in Kashmir or the citizenship law.

"Calling the recent violence 'community clashes' seeks to normalise far more sinister events. India is now controlled by a Hindutva supremacist ideology, with strong historic links to the Nazi party."

Mr Adams replied: "We are in constant contact with the Indian Government. We have concerns about the impact of the CAA legislation, particularly on Muslims."
