At a time when Ugandan Asians' lives were at risk from Amin’s brutal regime, Powell was trying to keep people like my family out
Why Can't We Say What Is Patently Obvious? That Islamist Extremism Has Gone Unchecked For Far Too Long
After Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge, the real issue is this: will we finally see a robust challenge to Islamist groups or will they be allowed to undermine trust between our police, the Government and our State, thereby making us more vulnerable? For far too long they have run amok framing themselves as David against the Goliath of Government. The reality is that Goliath has been asleep for far too long. Now it must be shaken from its slumber.
After Terrorist Attacks, Blaming, Abusing And Attacking Innocent Muslims Simply Supports Islamist Extremism
Sadly, we have picked up a significant and measurable spike in anti-Muslim hate incidents in Greater Manchester and across the country. Communities have come out in solidarity with each other and against terrorism and extremism. We need to challenge extremism, break the networks of the bombers and disrupt their activities at every turn. Let us also remember that we have to ensure that we collectively tackle anti-Muslim hatred when it rears it head after major Islamist terrorist attacks. If we don't and racists and bigots carry on with their actions, they are re-enforcing the very strategy that Islamist extremists want. That of division, increased vulnerability and the manipulation of young minds and we cannot allow that to happen any more.
Challenging Anti-Muslim Bigotry and Challenging All Forms of Bigotry, Within and Against Muslim Communities
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.
As we move forward, we call for Police and Crime Commissioners and police forces across the country to place anti-Muslim hate at the heart of their hate crime strategies. No longer can tackling anti-Muslim hate be an appendage or an after-thought on hate crime strategies and it must be placed front and centre with other protected strands so that citizens of our country, who happen to be Muslim, can live their lives free from bigotry
Over a month ago, a significant shift took place in Iran regarding the status of minority faiths in the country. Before I go into this, Iran recently seemed to dominate my conversation with a young woman that I met by chance at a conference in Central London...
Have you heard of Azerbaijan I asked the interfaith activist? No, was the response back and is that not a place in the East? Another activist blurted out reflexively saying, "isn't it some Russian state?"
The Neo-Conservative Speaker, Douglas Murray, Is Simply Wrong It Comes to British Muslims and Extremism
In his latest stomach-churning piece in the Spectator, Murray projects a sense of implicit threat from rising Muslim birth rates and changing demographics. In fact, one really has to ask whether Murray actually has anything constructive to say about Muslims at all.
