Update: Response to comments from Cllr Muhammad Afzal

Having heard the recording I believe that although this is a matter for the Labour group, Cllr Afzal should reconsider his position as Lord Mayor elect. We have met to discuss the matter and I have made my personal position clear.

I must stress that I do not agree with the comments, which in no way reflect the position of Birmingham City Council.

I made clear on Saturday my continued commitment to working closely with our communities across the city, with colleagues in West Midlands Police and at the Home Office to ensure that neither intolerance nor fanatical extremism has a place in Birmingham.
