Sikh Parliamentarian of Labour Party Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi has demanded British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to apologize for his derogatory and racist statement regarding the veil of Muslim women.

According to the details, Labour MP who belongs to the Sikh community slammed Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the United Kingdom’s House of Commons for giving belittling remarks against Muslim women.

While Addressing the Parliament, Labour MP said that since childhood he too has been facing negative remarks.

The women whom Prime Minister Johnson described as looking like a letter box or a bank robber, he could feel the hurt and pain of already vulnerable Muslim women, when will the Prime Minister apologize for his derogatory and racist remarks, he added.
