London elected a Muslim mayor on Friday.  His name is Sadiq Khan.  He is the first directly elected Muslim mayor of a major western city.  The victory is being recognized around the world as countries are struggling to integrate Muslim communities.

Khan grabbed more than 1.3m votes.  Khan beat a successful businessman who warned of Khan’s ties to Muslims with extremist views and history of violence.  It did not seem to matter to voters, and it reaffirms London’s growing Muslim population.
