Organised by the Muslim Women’s Council (MWC) in Bradford, this event was supposed to encourage aspiration, to shake off the shackles that prevent local residents from fulfilling their dreams and venture forth in the face of adversity. It was supposed to inspire local residents to become more engaged in civic participation and politics, to rouse their fellow citizens irrespective of gender, colour or creed, to work together for a more harmonious and prosperous society. The Board of MWC felt that inviting to the stage two women hailing from Bradford West to share their interesting journeys into politics, and engage in a discussion about their choices would be a stimulating and uplifting experience.
Instead, we witnessed a dramatic Bollywood scene, in which Naz Shah disrespectfully stormed out of the event on the pretext of ‘equality’. This had nothing to do with equality, but all to do with politics. It is her constituents who are vulnerable and need defending, not Conservative candidate George Grant, who actually stayed at the event and took to the stage when she left – so much for her claim the event was prejudiced against Christians and white males. It was a pre-planned exit designed to score political points at the expense of a hard working and respected local women's organisation, as well as constituents who had shown a genuine interest in hearing from both of us.
