Pensioners loudly echo Boris Johnson's niqab comments in doctor's surgery

Boris Johnson urged to apologise over niqab 'bank robber' comments Boris Johnson under fire for ‘hate’ burqa comments
Andrew Cummings | 10 August, 2018, 03:19

The party is understood to have received a number of complaints after Johnson likened Muslim women who choose to wear veils to "bank robbers" and "letter boxes" in a newspaper column earlier this week.

The Conservatives were gripped by in-fighting last night as prominent party figures warned that they would walk out of the party if Boris Johnson ever became Prime Minister. The ban was upheld in 2017 by the European Court of Human Rights following a challenge by two Muslim women.

A spokesman for the party declined to confirm the investigation.

Boris has been accused of Tory Wets of breaching the party's "code of conduct" with his comments.

Speaking to the BBC's Asian Network, Dick said that "some people have clearly found it offensive" but added that specialist hate crime officers have deemed that the former two-time Mayor of London "did not commit a criminal offence".

Mr Johnson has rejected calls to apologise for his remarks, in a Daily Telegraph column in which he also argued against a ban on full-face veils.

Boris who said women in burkas looked like "letterboxes" and "bank robbers" has refused to apologise and has said it is an attack on his Free Speech.

We, the undersigned, write to you as British Muslim women who wear the niqab or burqa.

"It is ridiculous that these views are being attacked - we must not fall into the trap of shutting down the debate on hard issues", a source close to Johnson told reporters.

We are happy to speak to Members of Parliament to share our experiences and perhaps demystify some of the concerns they may have.

"I'm not a Muslim woman..."

As chairman of a party that seeks to represent the whole country, which protects individual liberty as a cherished British value, your call - we believe - is insufficient.

MEND, a Muslim advocacy organisation, said his comments would "increase hostility towards a group already looked upon with mistrust and suspicion" while Imran Shah, a spokesperson for MPACUK, a Muslim campaign group, said the remarks were "a reminder of how similar Boris Johnson's views about Muslims are to those of Donald Trump and Steve Bannon".

Taking to Twitter, the Jaanan actress emphasized a woman's right to wear whatever she feels comfortable in.

Shreen Mahmood, a radio presenter in Birmingham who wears the hijab, said she had suffered verbal abuse and knew of others who had been spat at or had their head coverings pulled.
