Nazifa Zahman, the chair of the University of Warwick Labour Society, celebrated Boris Johnson being tested positive for coronavirus.

Earlier today, Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, revealed that he had tested positive for coronavirus.

This, for some reason, rather pleased Nazifa Zahman, the chair of the University of Warwick Labour Society, who took to Twitter to celebrate.

Zahman tweeted “Pm got covid? Happy Muslim women’s day again!”

One friend replied saying that Johnson’s positive result shows that the “dua,” the Islamic term for “prayer,” is being answered.

In her biography, Zahman identifies herself as the Chair of Warwick Labour, and an “advocate” of Warwick Decolonise, a group dedicated to “decolonising the curriculum” at the University of Warwick.

Zahman’s tweet was subject to criticism and response immediately, with one noting that if Johnson had said the same thing about her, she would be complaining about “unfairness and inequality,” and others describing her actions as “disgusting”:

After receiving the backlash online, Zahman made her account private, but then opened it again, and stuck by her words.

“Notifications are off people I don’t follow so come for me all u want loooool, again, I said what I said,” Zahman tweeted.

The National File has reached out to both the national Labour Party and the University of Warwick Labour Society for comment, and will update the story as soon as there is any response.
