When the first Muslim mayor of London wasborn, the news becomes a hot topic. Why?

      Sadiq Khan of Britain's Labor Party was born in an ordinary family,whose parents are Pakistani descendent. Around one eighth of population inLondon is Muslim. Since Sadiq started his election campaign, it is doomed to bea hot topic. London people chose him because of his great performance before.People believe that he can do better.

      Above all, Muslim is a minority in the UK. Its population is quite lessthan the natives of England, Scotland, Wales and so on. When you want to winthe competition, you got to have more supporters. Sadiq successfully did it.

      On the other hand, we see something new from the result that people ofLondon didn’t care much about who you are, but what you can do for them. Is ita progress in London? From this event, people might be wondering if there is aracial discrimination in Britain.

      Do you have any ideas about it?

London is probably the most multi cultural city in the world and this just reinforces that fact.

It could never happen in China as any openly religious person is banned from the Party.

So why do you think religion should stop a person from being in a position of power?
