On Monday evening Bradford Councillor Khadim Hussain published a video on his public Facebook page suggesting that the Paris shooting was a hoax (see below). A distressed member of the public had forwarded the post to UKIP and asked them to help deal with this issue.
Officials in UKIP Bradford were horrified that the day after Frances day of mourning where over 3 million people rallied in solidarity with the victims, we saw a elected Bradford Councillor post such a disrespectful video on his public Facebook page.
UKIP Chairman Jason Smith says: “While it is Mr Hussains right to believe in wild conspiracy theories, I personally find this totally disrespectful just a day after France’s day of mourning, Mr Hussain should remember that as an elected official his job is to serve the people not disrespect them.
I believe our leader Nigel Farage was right when he suggested we have a fifth column in the UK that is utterly opposed to our values, it seems that fifth column may well include at least one Bradford Labour Councillor.
I call on Labour leader David Green to discipline his Councillor.”
