Armeena Khan repsonds to former United Kingdom mayor for mocking Burqas

London England. The Former Foreign Secretary is expected to make his first speech today after resigning from government 9 day

Founder and president of the Conservative Muslim Forum Lord Sheikh told the BBC the party should take "severe action" against Mr Johnson.

In a letter sent to The Times, Dr Hargey said there was "no Koranic legitimacy" for the burka, adding it was "a nefarious component of a trendy gateway theology for religious extremism and militant Islam".

"What's important is do we believe people should have the right to practice their religion and, in the case of women and the burqa and niqab, to choose how they dress".

Warsi responded in The Guardian, saying Johnson had used rightwing, "alt-right" language in criticising the appearance of the burqa, which contributes to a view that "Muslim women are fair game".

"Johnson did not go far enough". They send out a message that Muslim women are fair game.

If you use the analogy of Christianity, would you ever write in The Telegraph that you should have a debate about banning Christians for wearing crucifixes?

Manafort defense asks Gates about additional extramarital affairs
Gates also said he may have submitted personal expenses for reimbursement by Trump's inaugural committee, which he helped operate. She said she had identified 31 accounts located in Cyprus, the Grenadines and the United Kingdom belonging to Manafort.

Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis said in a tweet that he had asked Johnson to apologize.

Pakistani actor Armeena Khan called out former British foreign secretary Boris Johnson over his derogatory comments against women who wear the 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.

"It is crass and it must stop, and it must be condemned by the leadership right from the prime minister down".

"We have to call it out".

But the survey for the Sky News found people are split as to whether the former foreign secretary should apologise for his remarks - 45 per cent think he should do so, 48 per cent think he should not.
