On September 14, 2005 the Hindu Press International reported, "Hindu organizations in the UK have expressed 'outrage' over the Home Affairs Select Committee's decision to accept oral evidence from only the Muslim community in its investigation into the backlash following the July terrorist attacks in London. This is despite recent figures released by the Metropolitan Police showing that more Hindus and Sikhs were victims of hate crimes than Muslims during the backlash that affected the capital, the organizations said."
