This week saw London voting in its first Muslim Mayor
Sadiq Khan, Labour MP for Tooting, is the new Mayor of London, by public support, but a lot of people can’t seem to get over the fact that he is Muslim.
While a lot of the political and social commentary surrounding Khan’s faith and upbringing has been positive, others are attempting to denounce him in any way they can.
People took to twitter to condemn the new Mayor using islamophobic rants, even creating a hashtag ‘#LondonHasFallen’ …
Fortunately many Londoners arent lunatics… and they responded in the best way they can… with sarcasm…

Typical! A Pakistani Muslim gets voted as Mayor and even the weather becomes foreign. What should we do! #LondonHasFallen
