Taking to the Micro-blogging website Twitter on the matter, Abrahams questioned the behaviour saying: “Why did the Indian Government revoke my visa after it was granted? Why didn’t they let me get a ‘visa on arrival’? Is it because I have been critical of the Indian Government on #Kashmir human rights issues?”

Debbie said: “Just to be clear, I have Indian relatives who I was meant to be visiting with & have Indian members of staff accompanying me. The reason I got into politics is advance social justice & human rights for all. I will continue to challenge my own Government & others on these issues.”
