Sajid Javid condemns Rod Liddle article over Muslim comments

The column in the Spectator magazine has also been condemned for ridiculing a Labour MP’s decision to speak out about her experience of domestic abuse.

Hawzah News Agency - Sajid Javid has denounced an article by the controversial journalist Rod Liddle that appeared to call for elections to be held on days when Muslims are forbidden by their religion to vote.

The column in the Spectator magazine has also been condemned for ridiculing a Labour MP’s decision to speak out about her experience of domestic abuse.

Fraser Nelson, the magazine’s editor, told the Guardian that the article “should not have been published in the form that it was” but defended Liddle’s right to attempt to satirise UK politics.

Several contributors at the magazine, including the assistant editor, Isabel Hardman, have expressed dismay at the column for being neither amusing nor worth writing.

Liddle’s article suggested elections should be held at a time when the Muslim and student vote could be minimised in order to improve the Conservatives’ chances of victory.
