To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent representations he has made to his Indian counterpart on the treatment of Christians in India.
5 March 2018
The Government remains committed to promoting and defending freedom of religion or belief (FoRB) for Christians, and indeed individuals of all faiths or beliefs.
We continue to engage with key Indian contacts on a range of human rights issues, including minority rights. The British High Commission in New Delhi, our network of Deputy High Commissions, as well as FCO officials in London, maintain a continuous assessment of the human rights situation across India, including with civil society groups in India. We are aware of reported incidents against religious minorities in India and continue to monitor the situation.
