London’s first Muslim Mayor
Muslims are always target of international media and politics. They try to show Muslims as extremists and terrorists. But the citizens of London express their views in 2016 London mayoral election, that Muslims are not extremists and they can believe in them. After a lot of accusations by Goldsmith that Sadiq Khan has sympathies with radical Muslims, he became the first Muslim mayor of London on Friday.
Sadiq khan was largely criticised by the Conservative challenger. He was blamed for being an extremist but he secured a great victory against conservative party. Sadiq Khan victory somehow heals the wounds of Labour Party. The Labour replaces Conservative Boris Johnson, who was mayor for eight years. It seems that Goldsmith tactics backfired as voters found his campaign “disgusting”. It’s time for the world to see that Muslims are not extremists and there are other people who are trying to destroy roots of Muslims. The next four years belongs to Mr. Khan. Now what really matters is that he should fulfil his promises to improve the lives of Londoners especially the people on lower incomes. — Via email
