Sadiq Khan, the new mayor of London 2.
Khan: “I have never met a Muslim before and I have no plans to meet one” 3.
The new mayor’s Muslim-sounding nickname is “Pocahontas” and she also says she has no plans for a Muslim marriage.4.
She says her husband was born in Britain, which is “not true”.5.
“The Muslim faith is an amazing thing and it has given me so much hope for my future and for the Muslim people”.
Asked whether she had any regrets about joining politics, she said, “no, not really”.7.
Tensions are running high after a video of the London mayor appeared to show him laughing as he called a Muslim man “a disgrace to London” after the attacker was killed by police.8.
But Khan, who is not Muslim herself, has defended her actions, saying that “I do not consider myself an extremist”.
And Khan is keen to reassure people that the Muslim community is not racist and that her new role as mayor will not affect her family’s immigration status.
