The Sikh community is an important part of British society and we value our engagement with Sikh organisations on a range of issues. We have not met British Sikh organisations specifically to discuss the farmers' protests, but the FCDO has exchanged correspondence with several organisations and individuals on this matter. This month, the FCDO issued a public response to an e-petition regarding the farmers' protests. The UK Government will continue to follow the protests closely, while respecting that agricultural reforms are a matter for India.
