Nusrat Ghani: I was sacked as a minister ‘because I was a Muslim’

A Muslim Conservative MP has accused one of Boris Johnson’s whips of telling her she was fired from her ministerial job because of her faith.

Nusrat Ghani, 49, was sacked as a transport minister in a mini reshuffle early in 2020. She claimed she was told that her “Muslimness was raised as an issue” at a meeting in Downing Street and that her “Muslim woman minister status was making colleagues feel uncomfortable”.
