Muslim organisation renews Tory criticism while offering support to the Jewish community over Labour’s handling of antisemitism

By Lizzy Buchan, @LizzyBuchan

Sajid Javid has defended Boris Johnson over controversial remarks about Muslim women despite previously claiming no “serious politician” should use such inflammatory language.

The chancellor said Mr Johnson had given a “perfectly valid explanation” over why he compared women wearing the Muslim niqab to “letterboxes” and “bank robbers” in a newspaper article last year.

Mr Javid, who is of Pakistani Muslim heritage, also denied that the Tory leadership had ever faced accusations of Islamophobia – only hours after the Muslim Council of Britain said the Conservatives had a “blind spot” to anti-Muslim hate.

However Mr Javid repeatedly failed to say whether he would use the same language as the prime minister about Muslim women.
