Wealden MP Nusrat Ghani claims today: I was sacked as a minister ‘because I was a Muslim.’

Her story has made the front page of the Sunday Times.

The Tory MP claims whips said her faith was making colleagues feel uncomfortable.

Nusrat Ghani, 49, was sacked as a transport minister in a mini reshuffle early in 2020. She claimed she was told by a whip 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”.
