Condemnation Of Indian Flag Burning

EDM number 1292 in 2017-19, proposed by Bob Blackman on 21/05/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Anti-social behaviour and Asia.

That this House condemns in the strongest possible terms the desecration of the Indian flag in Parliament Square on 18 April 2018; further condemns the timing of this action as it coincided with the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and was deeply insulting to both the Indian diaspora and the people of India; notes that these actions were carried out in full view of the police and have been widely captured on social media; calls on the perpetrators to apologise to the Indian community and to the people of India; and while acknowledging the apology offered by the Government to India via the Indian High Commission, urges the Government to take firm and decisive action against the perpetrators of this illegal and immoral act; demands that those responsible for this foul act are brought before the British courts and if found guilty punished for their crimes; and condemns those who commissioned and transported the vile mobile billboards which circulated London attacking our good friend Shri Narendra Modi.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
