Backbench Business: Sharia Law Courts — [David Hanson in the Chair] (2 May 2019)

Naseem Shah: The Minister mentions British values again. Does he agree with my view as a Muslim woman that there is no conflict at all between my Muslim values and British values?

Backbench Business: Sharia Law Courts — [David Hanson in the Chair] (2 May 2019)

Naseem Shah: Does my hon. Friend share my concern about the title of this debate, which refers to sharia courts, rather than sharia councils?

Backbench Business: Sharia Law Courts — [David Hanson in the Chair] (2 May 2019)

Naseem Shah: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I wear many hats in this debate, which I thank the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell) for securing. Contrary to the accusations of Islamophobia, I am a Muslim woman who is a member of the all-party parliamentary group on British Muslims. We have just launched our definition of Islamophobia, which I am proud that the Labour party...

Women and Equalities: Gender Pay Gap (25 Apr 2019)

Naseem Shah: When across 45% of firms the discrepancy in pay increase is in favour of men this year, it is now clear that the Government’ s policy of asking companies simply to report on the gender pay gap is not enough. I welcome the Minister’s response to the question about encouraging people, but will she now heed our advice and make it mandatory for companies also to produce action plans on how...

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Naseem Shah: It is an honour to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Chesterfield (Toby Perkins). Let me start by highlighting to those who are watching the debate across the nation that we are debating local council funding because it is an Opposition day. The Conservative party has continued to delay, distract and sometimes even destroy any meaningful conversation on Brexit, as a result jeopardising...

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Naseem Shah: Does the shadow Secretary of State agree that the fact that eight of the 10 councils receiving the largest cuts are Labour-controlled while eight of the 10 receiving the lowest cuts are Conservative-controlled reinforces the need for this Opposition day debate?

Non-stun Slaughter of Animals — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (3 Apr 2019)

Naseem Shah: I am not suggesting that the hon. Gentleman is saying this, but does he agree that the truth is that the debate about banning slaughter has an impact on, and is correlated with, the rise in Islamophobia and antisemitism? It is used as a tool by Tommy Robinson et al. and by newspapers to propagate headlines such as “Halal secret of Pizza Express” and “Brit kids forced to eat Halal school...

Non-stun Slaughter of Animals — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (3 Apr 2019)

Naseem Shah: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that while we are having the debate, we must ensure—I cannot speak for the other countries that he named—the religious freedom that our democracy is so proud of? In this instance, we are talking about two religious communities, the Jewish community and the Muslim community, which are directly affected by the debate and what he is proposing.

Written Answers — Wales Office: Economic Situation: Wales (3 Apr 2019)

Naseem Shah: What recent assessment the Government has made of the strength of the Welsh economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Apr 2019)

Naseem Shah: Despite the repeated efforts of my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Gorton (Afzal Khan) and others in calling on the Prime Minister to adopt the all-party group on British Muslims’ definition of Islamophobia, the Prime Minister refuses. Despite repeated calls for an independent inquiry into institutional Islamophobia in the Tory party by the former chair, Baroness Warsi, the Muslim...

Gaza Border Deaths: Unhrc Inquiry (22 Mar 2019)

Naseem Shah: Prime Minister Netanyahu recently said that it would be “helpful” to his chances of re-election if the Bedouin town of Khan al-Ahmar could be destroyed and its residents forcibly displaced before the election in April. Does the Minister agree that that is a disgraceful statement and will he join me in condemning it and accepting that this shows that Netanyahu is no longer fit for office?

Far-Right Violence and Online Extremism (18 Mar 2019)

Naseem Shah: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham East (Janet Daby) for securing this urgent question, and you for granting it, Mr Speaker. May I say how disappointed I am in the “what aboutery” response to the question from my hon. Friend the Member for Ilford North (Wes Streeting)? As a Muslim who has the largest Muslim constituency in the United Kingdom and who spent the weekend...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: China: Ethnic Groups (15 Mar 2019)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what information his Department holds on whether Uighur Muslims in Chinese camps have been denied their basic human rights.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: China: Ethnic Groups (15 Mar 2019)

Naseem Shah: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations his Department has received on the welfare of Uigher Muslims being held in internment camps in China.

Point of Order: Business of the House (14 Mar 2019)

Naseem Shah: Last week, I asked the Leader of the House for a debate on Islamophobia, given the crisis that the Tory party finds itself in, and on the definition of Islamophobia from the all-party group on British Muslims. The Leader of the House somehow confused that with a Foreign Office issue, so I would like to give her a second opportunity to answer the question: when will this House have a debate on...

Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (14 Mar 2019)

Naseem Shah: The primary victims of religiously motivated attacks are women, but how can the Government reassure Muslim women that they are serious about tackling Islamophobia when they choose to ignore and shut down the voices of the British Muslims in their own party who are calling for an independent inquiry into institutional Islamophobia? Speaking as a British Muslim, I believe that it is disgraceful...

Business of the House (7 Mar 2019)

Naseem Shah: Thank you, Madam Deputy Speaker. The Leader of the House may be aware that the all-party parliamentary group on British Muslims recently came together and published a definition of Islamophobia. Given the crisis that the Conservative party finds itself in over Islamophobia, does she agree that it is right we should have a debate in the House on Islamophobia?

Kashmir (7 Mar 2019)

Naseem Shah: I value the Minister coming here to give us this statement and I thank him for that. However, I am struggling with the fact that although we rightly hear about terrorism and how Pakistan needs to get rid of all the terrorism, I do not hear—and I want to hear—about the Kashmiri people. We do not hear about the fact that we have illegally occupied territory, and people who have been...

Jammu and Kashmir (27 Feb 2019)

Naseem Shah: Just last week, I returned from leading a delegation of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association to Pakistan, during which I met the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister assured the delegation of his commitment, reiterating that he wants a peaceful resolution through diplomacy. I am sure the Minister is aware that the central issue in this crisis is Kashmir. While the people of Kashmir are...

Relationships and Sex Education — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (25 Feb 2019)

Naseem Shah: It is a pleasure and a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. I concur with the comments made by the hon. Member for Bolton West (Chris Green) about the passionate speech made by my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Ladywood (Shabana Mahmood) and the points that she raised. I enter this debate as a representative of thousands of constituents who have been in contact with...
