RELIGIOUS NEWS AGENCY (REDNA) – Rishi Sunak, the Prime Minister of England, felt proud of being a Hindu and praised Narendra Modi, the president of India.

In an interview with the Press Trust of India on the eve of his visit to India for the G20 summit, he spoke of the “truly unique relationship” between India and the UK, which is home to the 1.6 million strong Indian diaspora.

“Being a proud Hindu means I will always have a connection to India and the people of India”, he said.

Soon after he became PM, he held a Diwali reception at Number Ten which he said was “an incredibly proud and emotional moment for me”.

He spoke of the strength of the UK lying in its diversity and paid tribute to Narendra Modi’s leadership over the past year, saying India’s scale, diversity and success made it the right country at the right time to hold the G20 presidency.

He had strong words on combatting pro-Khalistan extremism in the UK, saying he took very seriously “the duty of the government to disrupt and counter violent, divisive ideologies”.
