What Is Chancellor Of The Exchequer Nadhim Zahawi Religion?
Chancellor of the Exchequer Nadhim Zahawi is reportedly known to follow the Muslim religion. As a member of the Conservative political party, he previously commented on BBC Breakfast, "I don't recognize institutional racism in my party."
He added that "there was no place for Islamophobia in the Conservative party." He was welcomed to the world on 2 June 1967 by Iraqi Kurdish parents in Baghdad.
Growing up, he fled to the UK with his family when he was only nin-years of age in 1976. His friend Tim Montgomerie has reported him to belong from a Muslim background.
However, the politician has refused to make any statement on the matter. Either way, he has been asked time & again about his religion, with many opposition parties pointing it out.
He previously fell into controversy after former president Donald Trump's travel ban prevented him from visiting his children in the state. In spite of being a British citizen, Zahawi got banned because of being Iraq born.
At that time, he stated, the matter was "hugely discriminatory," "demeaning," and "sad."
