MP defends Muslim wedding walkout
A government minister has defended his decision to walk out of a Muslim wedding in east London because he was told he must sit apart from his wife.
Jim Fitzpatrick, food, farming and environment minister, left a ceremony at London Muslim Centre, Whitechapel.
The MP for Poplar and Canning Town told the BBC the segregation showed a degree of intolerance in the East End.
But a spokesman for the centre said the segregation was at the request of the couple getting married.
