- Yasmin Qureshi warned about her language during rant on BBC radio
- Describing abuse she suffered she said: 'It's like me walking along the street and someone calls me a f****** p**i b***h'
- Bolton MP arguing why it was right that Donald Trump should be banned
A Muslim Labour MP was forced to apologise today after she said 'f***** p**i b****' as she tried to explain why Donald Trump should be banned from Britain.
Yasmin Qureshi was warned about her language after she repeated a racial slur on national radio when she spoke of the vile abuse she had faced in the past.
Ms Qureshi told 5Live Breakfast listeners that the billionaire tycoon was inciting hatred towards British people with his comments about banning Muslim immigrants and no-go areas in Britain.
Apology: Bolton MP Yasmin Qureshi wants Donald Trump banned from Britain and said 'f****** p**i b***h' on national radio during a passionate speech about abuse she suffered
She said: 'He needs to know that what he is saying is unacceptable — this is not a discussion of ideas, what we are addressing is offensiveness.
'It's like me walking along the street and someone calls me a f****** p**i b**** or something like that - I have been called that by the way'.
Controversial: Mr Trump was branded a 'hate preacher' last night and faced calls to be banned from Britain over his comments, including calling for an American immigration ban for Muslims
She was interrupted by presenter Rachel Burden who apologised to listeners who said it was unacceptable, although added so was the abuse the MP had suffered in the past.
She said: 'Clearly we have to be careful at this time of them morning with the kind of language we are using'.
Ms Qureshi then replied: 'I'm sorry, I am just saying that is what I have been called, my apologies. Freedom of speech is great but it has to be limited to the right circumstances.
Ms Qureshi said some of the abuse does happen in Bolton.
She said: 'It is not a common occurrence, but it has happened occasionally out on the street, but it is much worse on the internet where I regularly am targeted with horrible abuse.'
Explaining her gaffe she told the Bolton News: 'It was in the context of that impassioned discussion and if people think that is wrong I understand that, but how can you demonstrate that kind of abuse without an example?'
US presidential hopeful Donald Trump has claimed the UK has a 'massive Muslim problem' as a petition to bar him from visiting Britain topped 400,000 signatures.
The property tycoon and reality TV star, who is seeking the Republican nomination for next year's presidential election, sparked outrage with his call for Muslims to be barred from entering the US and his claim that parts of London were so 'radicalised' that police feared for their lives.
David Cameron said his comments were 'divisive, unhelpful and quite simply wrong', while London Mayor Boris Johnson said they rendered him 'unfit to hold the office of the president of the United States'.
A poll on the parliamentary website calling for his exclusion from the UK raced past the 100,000-signature threshold to be considered for debate in Parliament and looked set to top the current record of 446,482.
But polls taken in the US after the remarks were publicised showed a spike in support among Republican primary voters, with Mr Trump on around 35 per cent and as many as 20 points ahead of his main rivals.
Mr Trump was unrepentant as he posted a message on Twitter: 'The United Kingdom is trying hard to disguise their massive Muslim problem. Everybody is wise to what is happening, very sad! Be honest.'
Asked for Mr Cameron's response to the businessman's latest claim, a Downing Street spokesman said: 'He wouldn't agree.'
