HC Deb 27 January 1913 vol 47 c979
55. Sir J. D. REES

asked whether the outrages committed during and since the war on the Mahomedans of Macedonia have aroused much indignation in India; and whether the Government proposes to give expression to its sympathy with victims, whose co-religionists form so large a proportion of His Majesty's subjects?


I am aware that the reports of the treatment of the Moslem inhabitants of territory in Bulgarian and Servian occupation have attracted widespread notice. The attention of the Bulgarian and Servian Governments has been drawn to the matter.

Sir J. D. REES

Will the right hon. Gentleman ask his colleagues to refrain from expressing sympathy with the enemies of the Turk, which is regarded in India as a cruel aggravation?
