An imam has been dismissed as a government adviser after backing calls for a film about the Prophet Mohammed’s daughter to be banned.

Qari Asim, 44, was removed from his role as an Islamophobia consultant after protests against the film The Lady of Heaven.

Supporting the campaign “to limit free expression” precluded him from continuing, the government said.
