Commons applauds Labour MP as he calls on Boris Johnson to apologise for derogatory remarks about women wearing burqas

Labour MP for Slough Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi called on Boris Johnson to apologise for his derogatory comments after he likened Muslim women who wear a veil to bank robbers and letter boxes.

Mr Singh Dheshi said: “I understand the hurt and the pain felt by Muslim women when they are called bank robbers and letterboxes”, and called on the Prime Minister to “apologise for his derogatory and racist remarks which have led to a spike in hate crimes”.

Mr Singh Dhesi also asked the Prime Minister when he will order an inquiry into Islamophobia in the Conservative Party.

He said: “The Prime Minister and the Chancellor promised they would have an urgent inquiry into Islamophobia on television.” The Prime Minister said his comments were “a strong liberal defence of what women wear”.

Mr Johnson said: “Under this Government we have the most diverse Cabinet in the history of this country.” He continued: “There has been no ounce of an apology from the Labour Party for the anti-Semitism which is deep in their ranks.”
