A Conservative MP who says she was told by a government whip that she had lost her ministerial role because her Muslim faith was “making colleagues uncomfortable” should make a formal complaint about the incident, Dominic Raab has said.

Calling the allegations by Nusrat Ghani “incredibly serious”, Raab, the justice secretary and deputy prime minister, declined to say whether he believed his former government colleague, saying he was “not going to get into impugning anyone’s integrity”.

Raab said that while Ghani’s allegation was “incredibly serious”, there would be no investigation by the Conservative party unless she submitted a formal complaint, which she had not done.

The chief whip, Mark Spencer, rejected the claim, saying Ghani’s account of events, in an interview with the Sunday Times, was “completely false”.

Ghani told the paper that when she lost her job as a transport minister during a reshuffle in 2020, she was told that “Muslimness” had been raised as a problem at a meeting in Downing Street.

“It was like being punched in the stomach,” she said. “I felt humiliated and powerless. I was told that at the reshuffle meeting in Downing Street that ‘Muslimness’ was raised as an ‘issue’, that my ‘Muslim women minister’ status was making colleagues uncomfortable and that there were concerns that I wasn’t loyal to the party as I didn’t do enough to defend the party against Islamophobia allegations.”
