“If she were my wife, I would have forbidden her to stand at the election”
UK Muslims are outraged at an unveiled Muslim woman councillor, whose name is Hasina Khan and who has stated that she won’t let male bigots win. And yes, there are some bigots there. The title of the post is precisely what the imam has said about Ms Khan:
He said that, as imam, he could not forbid Muslim women from standing for election, but he would be entitled to forbid his wife. “Because this is Britain, you cannot tell anyone what to do. I can tell my wife, but cannot tell other women, ‘You cannot do this and that’,” he said.
How sweet! A true liberal… It’s clear he is doing that because of her welfare…
