London mayor Sadiq Khan’s pictures visiting Hindu temple go viral

He can be seen in the pictures with female and male attendees, interacting and taking part in their rituals. Even in one picture a Hindu priest is tying a string around his wrist.


In one of his posts on his Facebook page on May 03, Sadiq Khan said Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Neasden is one of his favourite places in London.


“The temple is an incredible testament to the dedication of the local community, who worked so hard to build the biggest Hindu Temple outside of India.


“My life story will be familiar to many Londoners of Indian origin. My parents moved here to build a better life for their family in the 1970’s. They instilled a real work ethic in us kids, and huge respect for education, entrepreneurship and community,” he said in his post.


He had said as Mayor, he would stand up for London’s Indian community, and strengthen London’s friendship with India. “I look forward to leading a trade delegation to India at the earliest opportunity.”


Khan had said supporting growth and innovation would be his priority. He had said he would challenge the government’s unfair visa restrictions which made it harder for businesses to find the skills they needed.


“My number one priority will always be keeping Londoners safe – whether from anti-social behaviour or violent crime. I’m particularly concerned about the growing threat of extremism and radicalisation in London, and I don’t hesitate to say that I’ll be the British Muslim who takes the fight to the extremists,” he said.


He had said he looked forward to his next visit to Shri Swaminarayan Mandir as Mayor of London.


Sadiq Khan, the son of a bus driver, became London’s first Muslim mayor on May 03, seeing off a Conservative challenger who attempted to link him to extremism and securing a much-needed victory for his opposition Labour Party.

    There you go. I was wondering how they would let a Muslim become a Mayor. Got my answer.

  • He has my respect! “People follow different paths leading to the same almighty.

  • Abhishek Upadhyay

    May be other Muslims should learn from him. The only solution to peace in world is by respecting other religions.

  • supremeonionswamy

    does owaisi have the guts to do this? no wonder in london the muslims themselves protest isis,.

  • Hasan

    I respect this gesture; because, it promotes secularism and unity. We all should try not to be closed minded and should never judge people because of any particular religion they are born into. It’s too bad that politicians infuse people with so much hatred to divide communities along religious lines for their dirty objectives. This gives me hope.

    I am Fascinated and happy to see this and lets hope it lasts forever and its not just a stunt.
    You people in Pakistan and India have so much in common, like a beautiful mother and her beautiful daughter. The people must promote this gesture into reality to put out the small flames of animus and in true friendship, lift up the millions of poor who deserve so much better.
    Do it for the children and the creator will embrace you in the hereafter.
    Wonderful man mayor Khan.
    Peace to all.
    Thank you ARY.

    Respecting other religion ? I do appreciate that as well but with all due respect @Abhishek Upadhyay, in that case, someday Hindus should also show some respect for Islam either by;

    1. Cutting the cow in Eid Al Adha
    2. Women wearing Hijab
    3. Giving Money to Save Muslims in Burma and other part of the world

    Dont be fooled. This is such a farce, hes just trying to win Hindu and Sikh (Indian) votes back, the fact is Labour sides with Muslims to get the Muslim vote, Indians will continue voting Tories.

  • amrik

    We hindus are easily fooled. This is such a farce, hes just trying to win Hindu and Sikh (Indian) votes back, the fact is Labour sides with Muslims to get the Muslim vote, Indians will continue voting Tories.

  • Ajay Raj

  • Ajay Raj

  • neil

    Cutting cow? Killing animals is not giving respect but cruelty.. Why not cut a pork and eat and then preach others on killings?
    2. Woman are allowed to wear hijab in india .
    3. Indian tax payers already give money To indian muslims to make free hajj to Mecca trip , free food etc.
    4. India has already helped with billions funding to infractutrue , helping oprresed affected people in afganistan , bangaldesh . India has also given Burma muslims , afgans, , Iraqis and others refugee status in india. Including pakistani shia, ahmedis , sikhs , hindus who in thiysand apoly for refugee status each year. Also frgot ADNAN Sami. 5. India also gives medical treat,ent to these countries. Donate heart, liver,, blood, organs. So don’t preach us.
