That this House notes with sadness the targeted murder of at least 19 people, mostly Sikhs, on 1 July 2018 in the Afghan city of Jalalabad; acknowledges that the suicide bombing murdered the majority of Afghanistan's Sikh community leaders, including Mr Avtar Singh Khalsa the only Sikh candidate for Parliament; recognises that the Sikh community in Afghanistan, along with other religious minorities, are under sustained assault by a government uninterested in them and a significant minority of the population who want to see them gone; notes that many members of the Afghan Sikh community have come to the UK to seek safety and have joined the large UK Sikh population centred on West London; asks the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs to meet representatives of the Sikh community in the UK to update them on the work the Government is doing; and calls for the Government to work with the international community to offer support and security to the persecuted minorities of Afghanistan.
