A Sikh MP in the UK has been abused and targeted with threats of violence from furious trolls who think he was not speaking enough on issues related to the community, according to a media report. Tan Dhesi, who became Labour’s MP for Slough in June, was accused of ignoring the plight of a British Sikh man who was arrested during his visit to India.

But Dhesi vowed to continue working for the whole public “regardless of background, colour or creed” rather than focussing on just one community, The Sun reported. The abuse came after Dhesi won the right to speak at Prime Minister’s Questions and asked about a rail link in his local area. One troll wrote, “...A Sikh British citizen is being tortured in Punjab and you’re worried about rail. You have no response to that. You need a slap upside your head you fake Sikh!”
