South Asian Heritage Month provides an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the culture, history and lives of the three million people with South Asian heritage living in the U.K. today and to provide a greater understanding of why Britain looks as diverse as it does today. It also presents an opportunity to recognise the massive contribution of those with South Asian heritage who have come to the U.K. indirectly, via other Commonwealth countries or elsewhere in the world. South Asian Heritage Month in the U.K. was first launched in the House of Commons in 2019, although other countries (including Canada) originated the concept. Under Founding Patron Anita Rani, the first years’ programme of events was presented on-line in 2020 (due to the Coronavirus pandemic). South Asia is formed of eight countries, namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri-Lanka.
