CMF helps to organise Boris / Ken hustings meeting

On 27 April 2012 Conservative Party candidate Boris Johnson and Labour Party candidate Ken Livingstone took part in the first ever London Mayoral hustings meeting before an all Muslim audience comprising 40 Conservative supporters, 40 Labour supporters and 20 neutrals.

The event was hosted by the law firm Norton Rose LLP and supported by the Islamic Bank of Britain. Both candidates were questioned by Fatima Manji of Channel Four News, pictured alongside Boris Johnson.

Mohammed Amin and Shaheen Mahmood of the Conservative Muslim Forum were responsible for selecting the Conservative supporting members of the audience.

Shaheen Mahmood also had her picture taken with Boris Johnson.
