Unlike all other foreign visits by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the ongoing UK visit is being marked by protests from different sections of the London society.

The UK-based Awaaz Network, which staged protests saying "Modi is not welcome", said they are against his divisive agenda that aims at undermining the democratic and secular values of India.

The various protest groups demonstrating at 10 Downing Street and Parliament Square included Gujaratis, Sikhs, Nepalis, Dalits and women, reports said.

"There will be people from Hindu groups, Muslim groups Dalits, who have been victims of many attacks [in India], women groups and anti-racism groups," said Suresh Grover, one of the organisers, told IBTimes UK.

The Patels from Gujarat have called for caste reservation, while the Sikhs are protesting the desecration of their holy text the Guru Granth Sahib. The Nepalis have urged Modi to remove India's illegal blockade of their country resulting in depletion of fuel stocks, medicines and food supplies, a blockade the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has also asked to be lifted.

Another group organising protests is the Dal Khalsa, which claims to have gathered at least 5000 people to protest.

"We have joined as Sikhs, Kashmiris and Christians to have a united front against Modi and his ideology," London24 quoted Dal Khalsa spokesperson Jas Singh as saying.

"We are protesting against Hindu fascism, known as Hindutva. It is inspired by pure race ideology and all minorities are being oppressed by it under Modi. We are being forced to do certain rituals and to be subservient to the majority," he added.

Such protests are expected to continue on 13 November outside the Buckingham Palace, where PM Modi will have lunch with Queen Elizabeth and at the Wembley Stadium, where he will address the Indian diaspora.
