Earlier, Grieve told the British Newspaper “The Telegraph” that the problem was not restricted to “any one community” but he was referring mainly to Pakistanis.
Later, Grieve said he was wrong to give the impression that there was a problem in the Pakistani community.
In a statement, he said: “It is not my view. I believe the Pakistani community has enriched this country a great deal as I know full well from my extensive contact with the community over a number of years. “I’m sorry if I have caused any offence.”
