"The story of London's new mayor, Sadiq Khan (@sadiqkmp), is something like a British version of the American dream. @sadiqkmp was born to parents who moved to Britain from Pakistan. His father worked as a bus driver and his mother a seamstress. They were able to live in public housing and put money aside to purchase a home while their children went to state schools and universities. @sadiqkmp became a lawyer, transport minister and now, at 45, mayor of one of the world's great cities. This week, he said that his election is a lesson to @realdonaldtrump that #Islam is perfectly compatible with Western values. London, he said, "chose unity over division, and a rejection of the politics of fear." @adamfergusonphoto took this #portrait of @sadiqkmp yesterday at London's City Hall." By nytimes on Instagram.
