FORMER England cricket captain Michael Vaughan faced a Twitter row last night for posting: “Not many English people live in London. I need to learn a new language.”
Vaughan, 47, made the comment in October 2010.
Fiyaz Mughal, of Faith Matters, said: “This is an unfortunate comment as people from diverse communities are fully integrated as British people.”
A year earlier Vaughan was said to have told his ex Yorkshire team-mate, Azeem Rafiq, and two other Asian cricketers, there are “too many of you lot.
“We need to do something about it”.
A report found Rafiq, 30, was racially abused at the club but no action was taken.
Yesterday Rafiq’s family joined a Stump out Racism protest at Headingley, Yorkshire CC’s home.
Vaughan has denied making hate comments and racism.
