University Labour Party Chair Celebrates Prime Minister's Corona Diagnosis

Share

Nazifa Zaman, the chair of the University of Warwick Labour Society, celebrated Boris Johnson being tested positive for coronavirus.

Earlier today, Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, revealed that he had tested positive for coronavirus.

This, for some reason, rather pleased Nazifa Zaman, the chair of the University of Warwick Labour Society, who took to Twitter to celebrate.

Zahman tweeted “Pm got covid? Happy Muslim women’s day again!”

One friend replied saying that Johnson’s positive result shows that the “dua,” the Islamic term for “prayer,” is being answered.

In her biography, Zaman identifies herself as the Chair of Warwick Labour, and an “advocate” of Warwick Decolonise, a group dedicated to “decolonising the curriculum” at the University of Warwick.

Zaman’s tweet was subject to criticism and response immediately, with one noting that if Johnson had said the same thing about her, she would be complaining about “unfairness and inequality,” and others describing her actions as “disgusting”:

After receiving the backlash online, Zaman made her account private, but then opened it again, and stuck by her words.

“Notifications are off people I don’t follow so come for me all u want loooool, again, I said what I said,” Zaman tweeted.

The National File has reached out to both the national Labour Party and the University of Warwick Labour Society for comment, and will update the story as soon as there is any response.

UPDATE:

The University of Warwick’s official Twitter account replied to Zaman’s original tweet. “We send our best wishes and compassion to each and every person who has sadly become infected, and for their families, and do not condone any remark to the contrary,” the University tweeted, but added that they “deplore the abuse now being directed at a member of our university community [Zaman].”

Many were displeased with the reaction of the University, including members of the Muslim community:

In an email to National File, the office of Matt Western, the MP for Warwick and Leamington, did not explicitly condemn the comments, but reiterated that the university society is unaffiliated with himself and the Warwick and Leamington Labour Party. “Matt has sent his wishes to the Prime Minister hoping for a speedy recovery,” the email continued.

We will continue to update this story.
