With such harsh intolerance towards Islam under the façade of preventing extremism, this will no doubt have a knock-on effect on community cohesion and how Muslims are perceived by the wider non-Muslim public.
The Islamic State has once again acted in contrary to what it stands for. A video was released online from the group on Sunday announcing that it had beheaded American Muslim, Abdul Rahman Kassig.
In some ways I have remained evangelical but sustained by liberal querying and exploration. I have formed good partnerships with evangelical colleagues and in my own church which have enabled successful collaborations. However, I have not gone back to the evangelical places of my youth...
Why is it that there's outrage when newspapers are racist or anti-Semitic or homophobic, but not when they're Islamophobic? Why the double standard?
The report mentions that Muslim charities have been disproportionately affected by investigations from the Commission since the appointment of Shawcross, with 38% of all disclosed investigations initiated between 1st January 2013 and 23rd April 2014 being on Muslim charities.
It is now that these two communities must understand how interdependent they are. When one community is attacked, the other is next in line. The hatred of Muslims in Europe is the same hatred that Jews have experienced for the last few centuries. When Jews perpetrate islamaphobic actions, they are creating an atmosphere in which anti-Semitism thrives and vice versa.
We are seeing a discussion develop since the alleged case of Trojan Horse in Birmingham, of the shunning of faith in education. And thus seeing the increasing scrutiny of the faith school.
Out of the 300 million odd people living in the region, I understand my small sample of friends cannot be taken as a final representation of the Middle East. Nor do I want to gloss over the fact that thousands have been killed and millions have been made homeless. This we cannot forget and maybe, quite rightly, the media aren't letting us.
Given that transparency is the one thing most people want from financial institutions in the post recession era, a book whose title evokes secrecy may be somewhat of a repellent. And yet Harris Irfan's work is perhaps the most accessible insight into a maligned and mysterious industry.
It was a night I'll remember. I liked Tuhin and their brother-in-law, and my last visit reassured me why I chose to maintain a relationship with the Jamans despite the community's negativity towards them. I had developed a brotherly relationship with the boys, I saw their mother as my own mother, and after my in-laws' house, the Jamans' was where I felt most at home when I visited Portsmouth.
At this time of reflection, as well as remembering those who have served and died for us, I hope we can find a moment to appreciate the values we share, and be thankful of their role in shaping our Armed Forces and what they fight to defend today.
Last week, Shahzad Masih and Shama Bibi, a Christian couple who had spent years in modern-day slavery in Punjab province in Pakistan, were brutally beaten and burned to death at the brick kiln where they work after they were accused of blasphemy for desecrating the Holy Qur'an.
Whatever warped religion these terrorists are practising, it has little to do with the true teachings of Islam. But what can you expect from those whose only knowledge of the faith comes from 'Islam for Dummies'?
The Guardian's Andrew Brown should apologise for equating hatred of Islam with hatred of "black people".
To hate a religion according to Andrew Brown is to hate religious believers. To the point you want to make them victims. My hatred of religion for endorsing slavery makes me apparently hate modern religious believers, which is equivalent to rascism.
Our work has supported over 2,000 people nationally since mid-2012 and has also filled a much needed gap for victims of anti-Muslim bigotry. The last three years have been an exhilarating and gruelling set of experiences, where the personal safety of my colleagues and I have been affected.
