The UK will take up with Prime Minister Narendra Modi the warning by Moody’s Analytics that there has been a rise in ethnic tensions in India, during his visit to the UK next week, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said. Moody’s has put out and stood by a report stating that there has been a rise in ethnic tensions in India – the so-called ‘intolerance debate’ over which leading artists, writers and even film personalities have returned their national awards. Here are top 5 things to know:

1. Moody’s said that Prime Minister Modi must keep the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members in check or risk “losing domestic and global credibility”.

2. UK Foreign Secretary said Prime Minister David Cameron would take note of the Moody’s assessment in the context of Narendra Modi’s plans for the development of the Indian economy. “We always talk about issues of mutual concern. I am sure Prime Minister Modi will have issues he will want to raise around the Indian diaspora in the UK,” Hammond said.

3. “…I am sure Prime Minister Cameron will want to ask about some of the issues mentioned (Moody’s ‘India Outlook: Searching for Potential’ report]) because they are clearly relevant to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s plans for the development of the Indian economy and the opening of India to the outside world and the securing of India’s sustainable development,” he added.

4. Narendra Modi begins a three-day visit to the UK next Thursday, during which the UK government has indicated that rather than any one major announcement, there are likely to be a number of smaller and mediums projects to be unveiled.

          Really? The govt. which is contemplating closing down mosques fearing ethno-religious fundamentalism will lecture modi on a pseudo-protest by politically inclined pseudo-intellectuals!!?

            Now even Britan & its ministers are Congistooges, AAP Tards, Anti-Nationals. Why they didnt raise objections when Kashmiri pundits are killed, sikhs are killed.

                This is a wholly misleading headline, cooked by Madam Sonia's cabal. The UK Foreign Secretary has only generally said that they will discuss "some issues" concerning economic development raised in the report. NOWHERE has he said that "ethnic tensions" will be taken up for discussion. Utter desperation in sorry media freaks. You know, I'm beginning to feel that BJP might and should actually win 140 seats in Bihar. That'd be a huge, huge whip to the media lying unspeakables.

                    why so many people within and outside country cannot accept and not happy in progress of our nation?. After many decades selfless dedicated leadership in government, Gods sake they should be blessed by God to overcome this difficulties and evil designs.

                      Mr Hammond should mind his own business. Britain has the worst human rights against other nations. Read their history. Ireland, Scotland. Africa. Australia and of course Asia have all been mistreated by the British. Shooting unarmed Brazilian in the head is not very tolerant Is It??

                        Narendra Modi should also raise the question of Ethnic violence between Roman Catholics of IRA and the Protestants in Northern Ireland which is under British rule. If the British are wise, they should refrain from raising such subject during official visit of Indian Prime Minister to U.K. Otherwise Mr. cameroon should be asked to explain his stand on Northern Ireland ethic tension.

                            Modi might gift a swine to UK PM...for taking up their special interest in ethnic tensions. Well looking back..you know who taught desi politicians to divide and rule.

                              Modi ji unless you raise g issue of all -misrule, torture and loot of India for years including Commonwealth Countries by the same Monarch, it will not come to light and ball will not start rolling. At least you didn't go to Oxford hence you can raise as not being a slave as others. Jew got their plight heard and they chased everyone living . It is time to question and ask answers before the new generation completely forgets all these what our g parents and parents had endured.
