Nusrat Ghani: Boris Johnson said he ‘couldn’t get involved’ in my Islamophobia claim | ITV News

ITV News published this video item, entitled “Nusrat Ghani: Boris Johnson said he ‘couldn’t get involved’ in my Islamophobia claim | ITV News” – below is their description.

Conservative MP Nusrat Ghani has said Boris Johnson told her he “could not get involved” after she alleged she was sacked because of her Muslim faith.

Ms Ghani claimed she was informed by a government whip that she lost her job as transport minister in a mini-reshuffle in February 2020 because her faith was “making colleagues uncomfortable”.

The Conservative MP for Wealden met with Prime Minister Boris Johnson in July 2020 to discuss her allegations. No.10 said the PM had “serious concern” about her claims and he invited her to begin a formal complaints process, but the Tory MP did not choose this route.

In a statement released on Sunday, Ms Ghani explained why she did not launch formal proceedings through the Tory party and said she only wanted the government “to take this seriously, investigate properly and ensure no other colleague has to endure this”.
