Sri Guru Singh Sabha Southall strongly condemns the tweet by Conservative Peer Lord Rami Ranger, which threatened violence against Harmeet Singh Gill, the General Secretary of the Charity.
The post by Rami Ranger had a video of Indian security and police services attacking elderly men with sticks and batons, with the text “You too could get similar welcome Harmeet Singh Gill”.
The shameful message has since been deleted. Singh Sabha Southall deplores any calls to violence, especially from members of the UK House of Lords.
We have reported the inflammatory message by Rami Ranger calling for violence to the Police and have written to the Conservative Party to investigate the conduct of its Peer and take immediate action.
Hate speech and harassment of any kind must be condemned.
