This week I will be sending Legal Notice to the Indian Express and the Oped Writer Khaled Ahmed for criminal defamation for publishing an article recycling the cut paste extraction of my interview to the Canadian media that Muslims in India do not have equal rights with Hindus.

Over 200 million Muslims call India home. Widespread anti-Muslim mob violence has killed at least 27 and injured many more. Trump responds by saying, "That's up to India." This is a failure of leadership on human rights.

In 1947 India was under no obligation to allow Muslims to settle in India because Partition was, according to Indian Independence Act passed by House of Commons, for a Hindu ruled India and a Muslim ruled Pakistan. Settling in India does not give Muslims any special rights

I thank all parties and MPs who have supported the passage of The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019 in both Houses of Parliament. They have risen to the occasion and this step of theirs will forever be remembered in India’s history.

On a call with Pakistan's PM Imran Khan I listened to his concerns about the situation in Kashmir, including the ongoing curfew. The UN has a vital role in ensuring dialogue between India and Pakistan. Any political resolution must uphold the human rights of the Kashmiri people.
