This time it will be different. Sadiq Khan – man of unity and justice.
Sadiq Khan has just become a first Muslim Mayor of London. Why him being a Muslim is given so much importance in the media and attracted so much negativity from anti-Muslim camp in UK and worldwide?
People who take Mr Khan’s win as a negative event bring up very racist but nevertheless indisputable and the well known fact. Anywhere, at any time in history wherever Muslims are in majority, the non-Muslims are persecuted or, at least, treated as second class citizens. The opponents of Mr Khan are afraid that Muslim mayor will assist the process of further growth of Muslim population in London. In fact, Mr Khan is very vocal on taking more refugees, most of whom are Muslims.
Mr Khan made several statements calling for unity, dispelling the concerns of Islamophobic element in society. Based, on Mr Khan statements, we should be confident that this time it will be different and Muslim majority will not result in any privileges for Muslims and detriment to non-Muslims.
