Islamophobia in Parliament

24th Aug 2018

Sir, I agree with your editorial on how a peer can use the Parliament for his Islamophobic views and legislating it? But more importantly, as you argued how could the Government minister allow such a question to be asked in the House of Lords in the first place? (‘MPs need to get own house in order over Islamophobia’ The Muslim News, 27 July)And as you rightly asked, would the Lords have allowed an Anti-Semitic and Anti Racism question in Parliament? Of course not.
Why are Muslims then treated in such a manner? Why are we being treated like second-class citizen? Is it because of institutionalised Islamophobia? I believe this is the case.
Not only the peers and MPs need to resolve the issue of Islamophobia, the Government has to take this seriously.
Yours
