Religious groups slam Corbyn for sacking MP who warned of grooming by Pakistani men

Religious groups lashed Jeremy Corbyn today for sacking Sarah Champion after she warned of grooming by Pakistani men.

A letter, signed by crossbench peer Lord Singh on behalf of the Network of Sikh Organisations and by groups including the British Pakistani Christian Association and Hindu Council UK, warned against victims being ‘sacrificed on the altar of political correctness’.

Ms Champion was told to quit the shadow cabinet after she wrote in The Sun: ‘Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls.’

The letter also spoke up in defence Amina Lone, a Manchester councillor who was de-selected after speaking up for Ms Champion
