Tory Govt still thinking of establishing a working definition of Islamophobia

Tory Govt still thinking of establishing a working definition of Islamophobia

Conservative MP Steven Baker asked on January 7, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Robert Jenrick, when he plans to establish a working definition of Islamophobia.

Luke Hall, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Housing, Communities and Local Government, agreed in a written statement to Baker that there was a need for “a formal definition of Islamophobia to give the issue a stronger focus.”

Hall added that the Government had appointed Imam Qari Asim as an adviser on the issue.
However, this was done last July and since then the Government has not appointed another adviser, as was suggested by then Prime Minister, Theresa May.

The Government is still looking for an individual “with the right combination of skills and experience to drive the work.”

Hall didn’t give a search deadline for a second adviser, and Muslims will have to wait a long time for anything to happen.

However, when it comes to other faith communities, the Conservative Government responds very fast. For example, May appointed former Labour MP, John Mann, who chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Anti-Semitism, to advise on the most effective methods to tackle anti-Semitism at the same time as Imam Asim was appointed.

The entire Tory Government is indifferent towards Islamophobia and the Muslims forced to endure it.
