Amrit Wilson started this petition to Seema Malhotra MP (Member of Parliament) and

We urge the four Labour MPs - Keith Vaz(Leicester East),  Virendra Sharma (Ealing and Southall), Steve Pound (Ealing North) and Seema Malhotra (Feltham and Heston) to reconsider their decision to donate their pay rises for November to the cost of the 'Olympics style' cultural extravaganza in Wembley welcoming Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Instead, they should donate the money to the families of the victims of the 2002 Gujarat genocide that occurred under Modi's watch and in which 2,000 Muslims lost their lives and to the survivors of more recent attacks by members of Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and allied organisations; alternatively, closer to home they could donate the money to food banks in the UK
