 Migrant Voice - MV director quoted in Metro

On September 13, Migrant Voice director Nazek Ramadan was quoted in a Metro article about comments made at a Kinghurst Parish Council meeting. The article originally featured in BirminghamLive. 

During the meeting, one councillor had allegedly said that some Afghans coming to the UK could begin "blowing us up".

Responding to the comments, Nazek said: "These kinds of comments are totally inappropriate, inflammatory and fuel racism. They spread misinformation and incite hatred.

"We should not be distracted from welcoming Afghan families arriving in the UK. We’ve seen the overwhelming support from the British public, which has stepped up to provide all kinds of assistance to help their fellow human beings in their hour of need."
