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.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote a column in British daily broadsheet newspaper ‘The Daily Telegraph’ last year in which he referred burqa-wearing Muslim women to letter boxes.
Tanmanjeet Singh also shared the video on his Twitter handle.
