Lee Anderson, UK Lawmaker Suspended Over 'Islamists' Remarks About Sadiq Khan | Oneindia News

Lee Anderson, former Tory deputy chairman, faces suspension for contentious comments about Sadiq Khan, accusing "Islamists" of controlling the London mayor.

Refusing to retract his statement led to his expulsion from the party in Parliament.

Khan criticized the silence from Rishi Sunak and the Cabinet over the remarks.

While some Tories deemed the comments "ridiculous," the Muslim Council of Britain welcomed Anderson's suspension.
