UPDATE: Bradford councillor condemns Prime Minister for saying Muslim women 'must improve their English or face deportation'

A BRADFORD Councillor has condemned the Prime Minister after he said Muslim women who fail to improve their English language skills could be deported as part of a drive to build community integration and counter extremism.
David Cameron has warned that not speaking the language adequately could make people "more susceptible" to the recruitment messages of groups like the self-styled Islamic State (IS) - though there was no "causal link".
But Councillor Faisal Khan said he found it "quite absurd" that Mr Cameron was pushing for improved language skills after his government had cut the funding for Esol (English for speakers of other languages).
He said: "The way Mr Cameron is linking this with an inflation in extremism threats, I am quite appalled by it.
"Obviously we want communities to be empowered but the way he has approached it demonises people.
"He talks about people being backwards and mentioned a test for people, that's not the right language to use, it divides people.
"If he had simply said he was bringing back Esol and talked about the £20 million funding that would have been fine, but threatening people with deportation is really disappointing."
Naz Shah, the Labour MP for Bradford West, said: "On the whole I welcome David Cameron's idea of helping more women to learn English.
"I think his comments on deporting people if they fail a language test are not what he meant, that was just him pandering to certain groups.
"You cannot just pick someone up off of the street and deport them because they failed an English test, people have families and children.
"I think people need to learn and it is important that people learn English.
"If a mother doesn't speak English and her children do she doesn't always know what they are saying or reading or learning at school or what they are experiencing both in and out of school.
"You need to have that relationship in families so if mothers are improving their English so they can speak and bond with their children that can only be a good thing."
