Sikhs to converge on city to discuss human rights abuse
SIKHS from across the country are coming to Derby to discuss alleged human rights abuses in India.
A petition containing 120,000 signatures protesting against the alleged abuses has been handed to 10 Downing Street.
The petitioners want the UK Government to put pressure on India to sign the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and the UN Convention against torture, so Indian citizens would have the same basic human rights as people in the UK.
Today, the petition will be discussed in Parliament.

And, following this, the Sikh community in Derby has organised a meeting in the city for protesters to meet and discuss the outcome of the debate.
It will be held at the Guru Arjan Dev Gurdwara, in Stanhope Street, Normanton, on Sunday, from 11am onwards in the upstairs prayer hall.
Derbyshire MPs Chris Williamson and Heather Wheeler will also attend the forum, which Derby Sikh community leader Jaz Rai said would try to work out "how to go forward from here."
