Boris Johnson to face independent investigation over burqa comments

Boris Johnson under fire for ‘hate’ burqa comments

The comments were made in Johnson's weekly column for Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, in which he was criticizing Denmark's recent implementation of a burqa ban.

"It is crass and it must stop, and it must be condemned by the leadership right from the prime minister down".

Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis said in a tweet that he had asked Johnson to apologize.

Mr Johnson will be given the opportunity to make a statement providing "any evidence or details that will help to establish their position".
