I would like to tell those people who plan to go on this million march on Sunday of a few things. I speak as a 2nd generation Indian living in the UK. I am the son of two legal immigrants to the UK.

Firstly in the UK, you have the freedom to make such protests but you only have that freedom because of the ultimate sacrifice made by those who bled, fought, and died for this country. I dare the protestors to do a similar thing in China, Saudi Arabia or Russia. I would also say that if you love such countries and such cultures so much you should go and live there.

This is grossly disrespectful to the people of the UK and will no doubt sour relations. The British have been very accommodating to immigrants from abroad and many immigrants have been taking liberty after liberty but this is going too far.

They should remember what Mahatma Gandhi did during his protest marches to get Indian independence from British Rule. The rules were very simple take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time. Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, and Jews stood side by side. The rules were very simple, keep your hands by your sides. Shout no obscenities, at the end everybody sang “God Save the King” which was the UK national anthem at the time. Then everyone shook hands and then went home.

I would urge those people thinking of even attending this protest to stay at home and respect Remembrance Sunday.
