UK: Boris Johnson Faces Investigation For Criticizing Women Who Wear Burkas


“We are not forced to make these clothing choices, nor are we oppressed,” women from the Muslim Council of Britain wrote in a letter to Johnson.

How ridiculous. There are Muslim girls in the West and in the world who don’t want to wear hijab, and they are beaten, tortured and killed. Rifqa Bary, Amina Said, Sarah Said, Jessica Mokdad, Noor Almaleki, Aqsa Parvez can tell you about that — except with the exception of Rifqa Bary, those girls were honor murdered for their desire to live free.

That’s the real story here: the focus should be on the oppression of women in Islam. But of course it’s all on Johnson and his supposed “islamophobia.” The oppression of women in Islam means absolutely nothing to the enemedia. Their job one is to protect Islam at all costs.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis have demanded Johnson apologize, but he refused.

“We are not forced to make these clothing choices, nor are we oppressed,” women from the Muslim Council of Britain wrote in a letter to Johnson, BBC reported….
