British Sikh peer Lord Indarjit Singh has written an open letter to UK MPs urging them to “voice support” for sending UN observers to the three farmer protest sites in Delhi “to monitor and report on abuse of human rights”. Crossbench peer Lord Singh of Wimbledon, born in Rawalpindi in pre-Partition India, is urging MPs to attend the debate on farmer protests and press freedoms in India in the House of Commons on Monday. His open letter asks them to “strongly condemn the Indian government’s high-handedness and violation of human rights of farmers exercising their right of peaceful protest.”
