Lord Singh has questioned the government’s inequitable approach to the issues of genocide and human rights abuses.
During a recent debate centering on the 1915 atrocities by the Ottomans, peers discussed the need for Britain to recognise the genocide against Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians.
Lord Singh disappointed at the governments position on the mass killing of Sikhs in India, said:
‘My Lords, is the Government’s response to genocide and human rights abuse predicated by who does it and where it occurs? I ask the question because when I raised the issue of the mass killing of Sikhs in India about a year ago, I was told that that is a matter for the Indian Government.’
