On Wednesday, hundreds of protestors gathered outside Downing Street and the British Parliament, waving placards reading "go home Modi" and "hang the rapists" as the Indian leader prepared to meet with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

Cementing close friendship with Mauritius, Prime Minister Modi met his Mauritius counterpart Jugnauth and talked about cooperation in trade and investment, maritime cooperation and people-to-people ties, Kumar said.

Dr Faisal said that Pakistan had no confusion about its foreign policy.

"The Queen herself wrote a personal letter to me, a matter of great pride for India", Modi had said during his Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath diaspora event in London last evening.

He said comparing statistics of rapes in different governments was a worse way to deal with the issue and referred to his speech from the the Red Fort where he said people need to teach their sons to treat girls with respect. An Indian official part of the PM's delegation told PTI, "We have expressed our concerns with the British authorities...we have been warning against some of these elements out to make trouble and they have assured us of action".

Much like in India, the NRI community found itself divided, and the fervour that greeted his visit was tempered by the anger of protestors. To criticise, one has to research and find proper facts.

Modi visited Israel in July previous year in what was the first ever prime ministerial visit from India to the West Asian nation.

International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde on Thursday called on India's leader to focus more on women in the wake of the "revolting" rape and murder of two young girls.

A couple originally from Jammu that has been living in London for several years now said, "We have been living for 70 years in a war-like situation and we want it to be resolved". Following the retreat, Modi will head back to India after a brief stop for his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.

Digital Secretary Matt Hancock said, "Our world-leading digital economy is booming, worth more than £116 billion a year and employing more than two million people. There can not be a worse way to deal with this issue", the PM said while referring to the recent incidents of sexual assault on minor girls, which have triggered a huge uproar across India.

Modi also said: "There is an allegation against me that there is so much criticism, but I don't speak up".

"I am not anxious about criticism".

"India is today the spokesperson for the third world countries", Modi said.
