The rise of Sadiq Khan, the Muslim mayor who rattled Donald J. Trump

 In Inspiring

Born in Tooting, South London, to a working-class British Pakistani family, Khan gained a law degree from the University of North London. He subsequently worked as a solicitor specialising in human rights and chaired Liberty for three years.

Khan was elected Mayor of London at the May 2016 mayoral election, succeeding Conservative Party Mayor Boris Johnson. He is London’s first ethnic minority mayor, and the first Muslim to become the mayor of a major Western capital. Khan won the largest number of votes in one election of any politician in British history.
