London (Web Desk): Muslim British Parliamentarian Nusrat Ghani has been appointed the first female Muslim minister to speak from the Commons dispatch box.

Such a decision was taken first time in British political history.

Recently appointed as Transport Minister , Ms Ghani was cheered as she addressed questions about station access for disabled people.

Ms Ghani , Wealden MP since 2015, was born in Kashmir.

Ms Ghani , 45, worked for charities and the BBC World Service before first standing as a Conservative Party candidate in Birmingham in the 2010 general election.

At the occasion, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said her promotion proved the Tories "were a party of opportunity", having produced the first woman prime minister as well.
