Clashes began following India-Pakistan match 

Hindu and Muslim organizations clashed over the past weekend, which the police described as “severe disturbance” and “substantial aggressiveness” in the wake of the India-Pakistan Asia Cup cricket match that took place in Dubai at the end of August.

Arrests have been made

Following this, the Indian High Commission in London made a vehement statement denouncing the violence against the Indian community and requesting protection for those impacted.
