Labour MP Naz Shah Shared Twitter Post Telling Sex Victims of Muslim Grooming Gang to Shut Up for 'Diversity'

A rising star of the Labour Party who is a key ally of Jeremy Corbyn shared a Twitter post telling sex abuse victims of the Rotherham scandal to ‘shut their mouths for the good of diversity’.

Naz Shah, who represents Bradford West, shared and liked the post by a parody account of newspaper columnist Owen Jones.

It said: ‘Those abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need to shut their mouths. For the good of diversity.’

It comes just days after Ms Shah, 43, penned an open letter attacking fellow Labour MP Sarah Champion for writing an article stating ‘Britain had a problem with Pakistani men targeting vulnerable white girls’.

Ms Shah, a mother of three, later deleted her retweet and unliked the post.

But her actions were criticised by Equality and Human Rights Commission chief executive Rebecca Hilsenrath who said she should ‘know better’.

She told The Sun: ‘We need to keep the victims of these horrific crimes at the heart of the debate and always remember that diversity is not served by silence.’

As reported on MailOnline, Ms Shah, a Muslim, was suspended by the Labour Party in 2016 for making anti-semitic comments online.

Writing on Facebook, she said a ‘solution’ to the Middle East conflict is to ‘relocate Israel into the United States’, adding that ‘transportation costs will be less than three years of defence spending... problem solved’.

The inflammatory outburst was accompanied by a map of America with a small section representing Israel shaded in.

Miss Shah later apologised in a statement to the Commons: ‘I accept and understand that the words I used caused upset and hurt to the Jewish community, and I deeply regret that.’
