I speak for London - Khan

11 May 2016, 22:51

London - London Mayor Sadiq Khan says he wants to be the voice of the city - and not just labelled a spokesperson for Muslims.

Khan told reporters on Wednesday that he hopes to be the best mayor ever for London, a diverse city of Sikhs, Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus and others.

Khan says he recognises that he has responsibility to remind people that Islam is compatible with Western liberal values. But he's clear that he speaks for many in the capital.

"I speak for London," he said.

Khan's faith recently made news in the US presidential campaign. Donald Trump has suggested a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the country - though he would make an exception for Khan.

Khan says he's been surprised by Trump's ignorance.
