Blair condemns post September 11 attacks on Sikhs

Prime Minister Tony Blair has strongly condemned attacks on Sikh community in the United Kingdom in the wake of the September 11 strikes in the United States and said preventing such crimes and catching those behind them is "a high priority".

"We totally condemn the abuse and attacks on the Sikh community and prevention of such crimes and catching those responsible is a high priority for the police," he told a seven-member delegation of Sikhs led by Indarjit Singh, director of the Network of Sikh Organisation, which called on him on Monday.

During the meeting, the delegation offered support of the Sikh community to the war on terrorism, a spokesman of the prime minister said today.

"We welcome messages of support from the Sikh leaders on behalf of their community," the spokesman added.

Blair was told that Sikhs have been the victims of abuse and violence after being confused with members of the Taliban because of the turban worn by them.

Downing Street said the policy of targeted military action was in line with the Sikh belief that evil should be defeated.
