Bob Blackman inviting extremists to Parliament is unacceptable and dangerous.

Harrow Liberal Democrats have responded with anger to the news that Bob Blackman has hosted an anti-Muslim extremist in Parliament.

The Tory MP for Harrow East hosted Tapan Ghosh, who has called for the UN to control the birth rate of Muslims, praised the genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Burma, and said that Muslims should be forced to leave their religion if they come to a western country. Mr Ghosh also used his visit to share a platform with far-right anti-Islam agitator Tommy Robinson.

Adam Bernard, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary spokesperson for Harrow East commented:

“An area as religiously diverse as Harrow East deserves better than an MP who invites hatemongers to inflame tensions between communities.

“Mr Blackman needs to realise that his job is to represent people from all communities and of all faiths and nationalities.

“If he can't get the hang of that, perhaps he should consider a change of career?”
