Ken Livingstone, mayor of London, met with Sikh leaders to discuss a number of pressing issues. Of the topics discussed, of course, was the mistreatment of Sikhs in the aftermath of the 7/7 terrorist attacks. "It was pointed out to the Mayor that Sikhs had been extremely disappointed by the lack of acknowledgement by senior politicians for attacks on Sikhs due to their identity. Ken Livingstone's own words were repeated to highlight how Sikhs had been ignored."
"The Mayor has made clear that attacks on Sikhs and their religious institutions are totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated. In the meeting he also asked the Sikh representatives taking part in the meeting to convey his apologies to Sikhs for his oversight when he gave his first interview in Singapore and did not mention Sikhs."
