Boris Johnson orders top level probe into claims Tory MP was fired for being Muslim.

BORIS Johnson has launched a top level probe into claims a Tory minister was fired for being Muslim.

The PM has ordered the Cabinet Office to look into the bullying allegations made by Nusrat Ghani.

Ms Ghani insists she was pushed out of her government job over her faith.

The MP claimed a whip told her that colleagues were “uncomfortable” with her being a female Muslim minister.

And she was warned if she complained her career and reputation would be destroyed.

Downing Street insisted the PM had spoken to Ms Ghani at the time in summer 2020 about her worries and told her to register a formal complaint but she had not done so.

Boris spoke to her again last night to tell her he was launching an investigation.

A No 10 spokesman said today: "The Prime Minister has asked the Cabinet Office to conduct an inquiry into the allegations made by Nusrat Ghani MP.

“At the time these allegations were first made, the Prime Minister recommended to her that she make a formal complain to CCHQ. She did not take up this offer.

“The Prime Minister has now asked officials to establish the facts about what happened.

“As he said at the time, the Prime Minister takes these claims very seriously.”

Ms Ghani welcomed the inquiry and said it must cover "all that was said in Downing Street and by the whip".

She added: "As I said to the Prime Minister last night, all I want is for this to be taken seriously and for him to investigate."
