Video: Meet the British-Pakistani man who took UK’s PM Boris to the court for his racist comments
A Pakistani, Azfar Shah Bukhari, has taken UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to court for passing racist comments about Muslims.
”Boris Johnson has hurt the sentiments of Muslim women by passing derogatory comments on them”, Azfar Shah Bukhari
Before going to the court, Azfar used to think that Boris Johnson would eventually revise his mindset.
”I have 100% trust in this country’s justice because society is prevailing due to its justice system”, Bukhari.
Azfar Shah Bukhari is a self-determining candidate in the constituency of Broadford West in the UK parliament elections. He is also a renowned journalist who has received many awards and is also acknowledged by international organizations.
Bukhari stated that Boris Johnson has hurt the sentiments of Muslim women by passing derogatory comments on them. He said that “the world has a Muslim population of around 1.25 billion. When someone in the UK did something like this in the past, Muslims of the world wouldn’t have to face any penalty for raising their voice”.
Azfar Shah Bukhari further stated that Boris Johnson still passes unnecessary comments on people of other races and ethnicities. Before going to the court, Azfar used to think that Boris Johnson would revise his mindset eventually because people do not have such expectations from a political figure.
Unfit to hold Public Office:
He further added that he has 100% trust in the country’s justice system. A political figure, who is in such a position, should be very careful with his choice of words. Hence Boris Johnson is unfit to be in the parliament or hold any public office.
Boris Johnson calls his statements as ‘freedom of speech’. Azfar Shah Bukhari stated, “We have asked the court to give a declaration on either Johnson’s statements are freedom of speech or they come under the context of racism. Extremism has no religion. It has no nationality. It exists everywhere in every society, but it should not be left unaddressed”.
