Growing Problem of Islamophobia in Britain
More than 47,000 hate crimes were recorded between 2012 and 2014.
Hate crimes against Muslims in Britain have spiked in the last three years, police documents reveal. Figures obtained through Freedom of Information requests show that racially or religiously aggravated harassment crimes surged from 15,249 to 17,605 between 2012 and 2014.
More than 47,000 hate crimes were recorded over the same time period.
One example occurred in August 2014, when a 42-year-old man hung swastikas and Ku Klux Klan symbols over the site where a mosque was going to be built, writing the words “Burn in hell” over flags.
Other incidents involved football fans tearing pages from the Koran to make confetti. “With racist bullying in schools attributed to Islamophobia on the rise according to ChildLine, job discrimination against Muslims commonplace and regular attacks against Muslims ... there is a serious concern that needs to be both acknowledged and tackled,” said Dr Shuja Shafi, secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain.
