No Place for F*kcwits in Islamic Britain:
A happier Jean Calvert during her time as mayor.
Tearful mayor in attack on Muslim ‘photo snub
Her comments came in her departing speech as she handed over mayoral duties to Coun Karam Hussain (Lib Dem, Dewsbury West).
Coun Calvert was referring to her invitation to attend a community cohesion event at Dewsbury Town Hall in March.
It was organised by the North Kirklees Sunni Muslim Council of Mosques and local imams to mark Eid-Milad-Un-Nabi, the prophet Mohammed’s birthday.
In her tearful speech to the full council and members of the public at Huddersfield Town Hall on Wednesday, Coun Calvert said she had checked whether the invitation was really for her rather than deputy mayor Coun Karam Hussain, but organisers insisted she was welcome.

She said: “I attended this event and was horrified to be left on my own in a room full of people that I didn’t know. The press wanted to take photographs of the group with the mayor.
“The photographer was told in no uncertain terms that ‘we don’t have photographs taken with women.’
* Not only that: It seems that many of these Islamo-thugs don’t like to have their picture taken at all.
Update: The only picture we could get hold of for now is this:
“That was bad enough but then to stand on my own for a further 15 minutes while photographs were being taken of all the other guests in the room was very upsetting.”
Second Update: We got him!
*Â Cllr Karam Hussain, Mayor of Kirklees
In her early years as councillor, Coun Calvert was chairwoman of the Women’s Rights Committee and helped to launch the council’s domestic violence policy.
She said: “I started my life in politics trying to even out the injustices of women’s rights, anti-poverty measures and to make for a more equal society.
“These actions have made me realise that we are no further down that road today than we were in 1992 when I became a councillor.
“The question is when are things going to change? I’ll leave that question with the leader of the council and the cabinet to solve.”
But an organiser of the community cohesion event said he had contacted the mayor’s office in advance to explain Coun Calvert could not appear in photographs with orthodox clerics.
Waseem Riaz, of Heckmondwike Jamia Mosque, said: “We confirmed this beforehand with the mayor’s office that we wanted the mayor to come along but, just to keep things culturally sensitive, if it would be okay that the mayor doesn’t appear in photos.”
He said it was the custom of orthodox Muslims to keep the sexes apart and it would have been the same if a male mayor had met a group of female orthodox Muslims.
He said: “It is a part of orthodox Islamic beliefs that unless it’s a person’s own wife that it’s better not to have photographs taken.
“Some orthodox Muslims would not even have photographs taken with their own wives.”
