Islamophobic attacks increasing

28th Aug 2015

Sir, In every issue of The Muslim News I read the Islamophobic attacks not only in the UK but in other parts of Europe and the US. The attacks are not only on living people but they do not even the leave the dead to lay in peace as your report on Nottingham Muslim graves shows.

The vandalism of the graves indicates Islamophobes don’t even care about the dead. But as you report, the hurt is acutely felt by the family members who have lost their dear ones.

The prevailing Islampohobia in the country affects Muslims at work too. Many employers refuse to employ Muslims (‘Non-Muslim name secures interview’). The reason is because whenever our politicians and the media talk about Muslims they do so negatively – as extremists, terrorists, criminals etc and so the employers believe all Muslims are potentially extremists.

Yours,
