In the 2009 interview with Press TV Mr Khan was asked why the Government’s counter-extremism strategy focused on working with moderate Muslim groups like the respect Quilliam Foundation.
He responded: ‘I wish we only spoke to people who agree with us. I can tell you that I’ve spent the last months in this job speaking to all sorts of people. Not just leaders, not just organisations but ordinary rank and file citizens of Muslim faith and that’s what good government is about, it’s about engaging with all stakeholders. You can talk about articles in the newspapers about what an organisation might get but the point is you can’t just pick and choose who you speak to, you can’t just speak to Uncle Toms.’
So according to the Left, Common Purpose, the so called BBC et al London now has an Islamist racist, or is that a racist Islamist. A good start.
