Sadiq Aman Khan is a British politician who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Tooting since 2005. A member of the Labour Party, he is standing as the party's candidate to be Mayor of London in the 2016 mayoral election. Ideologically, he is situated on the social democratic wing of the party.
Claimed that "London's transport authority is far too dominated by white men".
Following the U.K.'s decision to Brexit, Khan took to Facebook on Friday to express his support for the many London residents who hail from other parts of Europe: "I want to send a clear message to every European resident living in London - you are very welcome here. As a city, we are grateful for the enormous contribution you make, and that will not change as a result of this referendum. There are nearly one million European citizens living in London today, and they bring huge benefits to our city - working hard, paying taxes, working in our public services and contributing to our civic and cultural life. We all have a responsibility to now seek to heal the divisions that have emerged throughout this campaign - and to focus on what unites us, rather than that which divides us."
Mr Khan claims to have distanced himself from jihad-monger Makbool Javaid, but The Sun can reveal the Tooting MP also had family links to four members of the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir. [...] In 2007 Mr Khan admitted that he was related to four other men through evil Javaid who were members of Hizb ut-Tarir. The fundamentalist group wanted to turn Britain into an Islamic state under Sharia law.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has said that living with terror attacks - like the one that hit New York at the weekend - is 'part and parcel of living in a big city'. Mr Khan told the Evening Standard: 'It is a reality I'm afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things. 'That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but also it means exchanging ideas and best practice.'
Sadiq Khan was accused of being unfit to become London's next mayor after footage emerged of him describing moderate Muslims of being "Uncle Toms".
Tweeted: "Proud to speak at @PinkNews Awards tonight & celebrate the amazing contribution that London’s vibrant LGBT+ community makes to our city"
