Britain’s Hindu Prime Minister says Christian Values ‘Embedded in National Fabric’

The prime minister has praised churches for offering a “sense of belonging” to people as part of his Easter message. Rishi Sunak proclaimed Christian values to be “British values,” saying that the message of the gospel is “embedded” in the nation’s history and “national fabric”. Namely, he recognised the Biblical values of tolerance, compassion and charity. He wished a “very happy Easter” to “all those celebrating”. The Prime Minister is a practicing Hindu but rarely speaks publicly about his faith. When he was Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sunak lit candles for Diwali outside Number 11. In 2020, he said his faith gave him “strength and purpose” and was a fundamental part of who he is. Leader of the opposition, Sir Keir Starmer said “Churches across Britain support their community, providing a sense of unity and hope, particularly when times are tough. “At this time of optimism and new beginnings, I thank them for everything they do, and wish you all a very Happy Easter.”
