The guest of honour at Labour’s sex segregation rally on Saturday was Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, above right.
Chaudhry is the former premier of Kashmir and the MP for Mirpur, in Pakistan. In a 2010 BBC profile, he claimed he “always” visits Britain ahead of general elections in order to tell British-Pakistanis “how to vote“. Chaudhry claims:
“I always come during elections. It’s basically so I can tell people how to vote and who to vote for. Most of the Pakistanis here [in Britain] are from Mirpur, and I am the MP from Mirpur, and I know the issues here and who will be the best candidates to help solve the issues in Kashmir.”
Not only did four Labour MPs attend a sex segregated rally, the star speaker claims to be instructing British-Pakistanis how to vote. Why is Labour enabling this sort of unseemly politics at a British election?
