Several boxes of rotten tomatoes and crates of eggs will end up in landfill sites as Met Police denied permission for a Pakistan sponsored protest to take place in front of India House at Holborn on October 27.

The most disappointed person over the latest turn of events is Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham. He condemned the decision of the police and said he will go to the Indian High Commission as usual.

“This is unacceptable and undemocratic act to ban peaceful march to the Indian High Commission. I will be going to the Indian High Commission as every year,” the Lord who is facing a rape trial on Dec.2 told The News.

 by . London Mayor Sadiq Khan also condemned the move to organise a protest march near Indian Embassy at Holborn when the Indian community celebrates Diwali. The mayor in a letter to Navin Shah, London Assembly Member for Brent & Harrow, said:  I absolutely condemn the plans for a protest march to take place on the auspicious day of Diwali, in the vicinity of the Indian High Commission in London.

The mayor puts the onus on Home Secretary Priti Patel to take a decision and now it is confirmed.  The Scotland Yard is now banned the protest outside the Indian High Commission and asked them to assemble at Parliament Square at Westminster and end the procession at Trafalgar Square through Parliament Street and Whitehall.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan had condemned plans to hold march on Diwali and called on the organisers and prospective participants to cancel the protest rally. In response to a letter by Indian-origin London Assembly member Navin Shah, Mayor Mr. Khan said, “I absolutely condemn the plans for a protest march to take place on the auspicious day of Diwali, in the vicinity of the Indian High Commission in London. This march will only deepen divisions at a time when Londoners need to come together.”
