Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has been accused of Islamophobia after saying Muslim women wearing burkas "look like letter boxes".
He said he was against bans on face-covering veils in public places, in his Telegraph column, but added that they looked "absolutely ridiculous".
The Muslim Council of Britain accused him of "pandering to the far right".
Labour MP Jess Phillips said she would report Mr Johnson to the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
The Muslim Council of Britain said the comments were "particularly regrettable in this current climate, where Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hatred is becoming worryingly pervasive".
