Chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum Would Quit if Johnson Becomes PM

Mohammed Amin, the chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum, has said that he would resign from his role if Boris Johnson becomes leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister. The group was founded in 2005 and aims to set out Conservative values to the Muslim community, as well as representing the views of the community to the party.

Amin said on BBC Radio:

“I have been a Conservative Party member for over 36 years. We don’t expect our politicians, our prime ministers, to be saints but we do require a basic level of morality and integrity. Of all of the candidates in the Conservative Party leadership election, Boris Johnson is the only one that I believe fails that test. And I’m not prepared to be a member of a party that chooses him as its leader.”
