Should Boris Johnson apologise for his comments about burkas?

Should Boris Johnson apologise for his comments about burkas?”

Founder and president of the Conservative Muslim Forum Lord Sheikh told the BBC the party should take "severe action" against Mr Johnson. It is, however, a nefarious component of a trendy gateway theology for religious extremism and militant Islam.

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

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".

Dr Hargey has frequently criticised the practice of wearing the burka, and has also courted controversy in some circles for allowed men and women to pray together and for discouraging Muslim-only schools.

She said: "I know that many people have found this offensive".

Meanwhile Scotland's Conservative leader Ruth Davidson called for the former Foreign Secretary to apologise, despite agreeing with the wider point in his column that face-covering veils should not be banned.

Johnson, who resigned as foreign secretary in July over Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy, was swiftly condemned by former colleagues and fellow lawmakers for his Islamophobic comment. "If you tell me that the burka is oppressive, then I am with you", he wrote.

The Conservative Party's chairman, Brandon Lewis, has called on Mr Johnson to apologise for the comments. "If we fail to speak up for liberal".

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

The poll was conducted for Sky News using a nationally representative sample of 1,649 Sky customers on August 8th 2018, using data weighted to the profile of the population.
