UK Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes MP met with a delegation led by Emma Hardy MP, with Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi MP and representatives from Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara Southall (Afghan Ekta Society) and United Sikhs.  The NGOs handed a dossier to the Minister, highlighting the current difficulties facing the community, following the 100+ recent attacks against the minorities in Afghanistan.


Emma Hardy MP remarked “I’m pleased that the Government is going to review its country guidance on Afghanistan and we will be meeting with them again at the end of March to ensure that it actually represents the situation for Afghan Sikhs and Hindus”.  


Tanmanjeet Dhesi MP said “While we had raised the issue last year in Parliament, it was important that we updated the Minister about the desperate plight of Sikhs and Hindus in Afghanistan, seeking reassurances for those refugees in the UK facing the threat of deportation”.


Preet Kaur Gill MP stated “I am pleased to hear that the guidance is under review and the All Party Parliamentary Group for British Sikhs will be submitting evidence to that and we will continue to urge the government to commit to not returning any Afghan Sikhs to Afghanistan”.
