Muslim MSP Humza Yousaf Takes Oath of Allegiance in Urdu

Humza Yousaf, the cousin of Muslim extremist Osama Saeed, who was appointed a member of the Scottish Parliament thanks to his top placement on the SNP's Glasgow Regional List, today swore his oath of allegiance in the Scottish Parliament in Urdu. Yousaf wore a traditional Pakistani garment called a sherwani with a tartan plaid.

Mr Yousaf said: "I'm proud, like many in Scotland, of my Scottish-Pakistani identity and by taking the oath in Urdu and English and mixing traditional dress from both cultures I hope to take a further step toward cementing the Scottish-Pakistani identity in Parliament."

  1. Kilt makers are, no doubt, at this very minute designing a new line of Yousaf tartans to cope with the expected demand.
