Sikh MP Slough Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi gave a electrified speech in the House of Parliament calling out the UK PM’s racist remarks on Muslim Women.
MP Tanmanjeet demanded an inquiry on allegations of Islamaphobia within the Conservative party to which he received a thunderous applause.
He said, ‘Mr Speaker, if I decide to wear a turban or you decide to wear a cross or he decides to wear a kippah or skull cap and she decides to wear a hijab or a bukrha, does that mean it is open season for right honourable members of those house to make derogatory remarks about our appearance? ‘For those of us who, from a young age have had to endure and face up to being called names, you can appreciate full well the hurt and pain felt by already vulnerable Muslim women when they are described as looking like bank robbers or letter boxes. ‘So rather than hide behind sham and whitewash investigations, when will the Prime Minister finally apologise for his derogatory and racist remarks which have led to a spike in hate crime? ‘And given an increasing prevalence of such incidents within his party, when will the Prime Minister finally order an inquiry into Islamaphobia – something that that he and his Chancellor promised on national television.’
The UK PM referenced his relation to Sikhs in his response to the Sikh MP. The reference was made to a woman he married and fathered four children and left her for a woman half his age.
