The statement came after the Indian authorities had issued a demarche to the British government to take steps against a rally planned at Trafalgar Square on August 12 by a group named Sikhs for Justice.
"However, we will not tolerate any groups who spread hate or deliberately raise community fears and tensions by bringing disorder and violence to our towns and cities and the police have comprehensive powers to deal with such activities," the spokesperson added.
The MEA stressed in its statement that the majority of the Sikh community, in Britain and around the world, have very good relations with India.
"As far as such small groups are concerned, I believe these are fringe elements and their job is to spread hatred and communal disharmony," Kumar said.
The Sikhs for Justice group claims its Referendum 2020 campaign is the first-ever referendum of the global community of around 30 million Sikhs.
"London Declaration is a peaceful campaign for a non-binding referendum on the question of Sikhs' right to self-determination, as guaranteed by the UN Charter and International Convention on Civil and Political Rights," the group said in a statement.
The August 12 date for the rally has been selected to coincide with India's 72nd Independence Day on August 15.
