Tackling Islamophobia

The increased levels of antisemitism and Islamophobia are eye watering and should be of serious concern to us all. Urgent action is needed on both fronts and community cohesion and dialogue, must be a priority.

In the week we mark the International Day to Combat Islamophobia Islamophobia, we know there has been a 335% increase in Islamophobic hate cases in the UK. Despite this, the UK Government has not reconvened the UK anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group for more than four years. The next anti-Muslim hatred adviser has quit over extremist threats. This UK is not doing all that is needed to properly tackle Islamophobia.
