British PM May, others flay Boris Johnson for ‘Islamophobic’ remarks

Boris Johnson burka comment

A data poll conducted yesterday by Sky News indicates that a large majority of the public are in favour of banning the burqa outright and that Johnson's comments about it were not "racist" - despite the Prime Minister and many other establishment, progressive-type "Conservatives" urging him to apologise. It is, however, a nefarious component of a trendy gateway theology for religious extremism and militant Islam.

The independent panel will decide whether to refer Mr Johnson to the party's board.

The burka and niqab are disgusting tribal ninja-like garments that are pre-Islamic, non-Koranic and therefore un-Muslim.

In a letter written to The Times Mr Hargey, who has spoken out in the past against Muslim-only schools and gender segregation in mosques, said that Islamic face coverings have "no Koranic legitimacy".

But Johnson received support from some quarters, with Conservative MP Nadine Dorries saying he "did not go far enough".




A full ban on niqabs and burkas was announced in May this year, and came into force on August 1.

Following a growing chorus of condemnation over Johnson's derogatory views he made about Muslim women wearing burqas, Britain's Conservative Party Chairman Brandon Lewis said on Tuesday he had asked Johnson to apologize. "It's very clear that the language Boris Johnson used to describe people's appearance, has caused offence".

"If you say that it is weird and bullying to expect women to cover their faces, then I totally agree - and I would add that I can find no scriptural authority for the practice in the Koran". It was the wrong language to use.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson backed calls for an apology today, calling Mr Johnson's column "gratuitously offensive".

"I think that this wasn't an off-the-cuff slip, he wrote a column, he knew exactly what he was doing and I think it crossed from being provocative and starting a debate and actually it became rude and gratuitous", the Scots Tory leader said.
