Pleased to join so many @UKLabour colleagues at #LNW21 to mark Islamophobia Awareness Month. We pledge to do all we can to tackle this insidious hatred, which has real-life implications for Muslim communities in the UK and beyond. #IAM2021 @MuslimCouncil @AmnestyUK
This week my friend @ApsanaBegumMP gave a powerful speech about the Islamophobia she's faced since becoming an MP. Racists want to drive people like us out of politics. We're not going to let them! 💪🏽💕
Prominent Muslims in Bollywood appear to be targeted "for speaking up against Islamophobia....[T]he cases against them are part of a more insidious campaign to intimidate Muslims and liberals associated with Bollywood."
I met today with @NottinghamMWN to discuss their work empowering Muslim women, tackling gendered Islamophobia, and #IslamophobiaAwarenessMonth . In times of immense darkness, phenomenal women like these are shining lights. I’m proud to work with them for our city.
Hijabberwocky, aka Sara Kadry, is a full-time gaming content creator who also wears the hijab. She's building a positive and inclusive community, even though she deals with Islamophobia and bigotry on a daily basis.
This morning I posted about racist abuse emailed to me. This afternoon I checked my emails again. Islamophobia must be called out.
This wasn't an easy speech to give, but I can't be silent about Islamophobia.
If you foment hatred against Muslims don't offer your sympathy when hatred kills Jews. Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia are two symptoms of the same white nationalist disease. You either fight them both or you are complicit in them both.
France made face masks mandatory in public — but its ban on face veils, burqas and niqabs is still in force. Officials told @washingtonpost women who wear them as face coverings can be punished with fines. @hrw 's director said: "Can the Islamophobia be more transparent?"
We’ve recently seen disturbing antisemitic attacks and a troubling rise in Islamophobia. If you are committed to a future of equality and peaceful coexistence, please stand united against anyone who promotes hatred of any kind.
