In The National Paper

before the meeting, Mrs. Mubarik Iqbal, a 47-year-old Asian woman and a member of Bradford’s Community Relations Council spoke up for Mr. Honeyford and lashed out at the lobby determined to have him dismissed. She claimed that many of the Asians who had joined the anti-Honeyford campaign were illiterate and had been manipulated. She added: “Since I first backed Mr. Honeyford publicly, I have been accused of drug smuggling and there have been rumours to the effect that I have been paid £1,000 by the National Front to back him. This is totally ludicrous and a vicious slander.”
