Launch an independent inquiry into Islamophobia in major political parties

type:Petition

In the last few weeks hate crime monitoring group Tell MAMA has reported a spike in anti-Muslim hate directly linking them to comments made by Boris Johnson comparing Muslim women to “letter boxes” and “bank robbers.”

Hate incidents such as: a Muslim woman on a bus was told to remove her niqab, and Muslim women have reported that passersby have said “oh there goes a letterbox”. Mosques have been attacked. And these are only a small number of attacks that have been reported, many more victims remain silent and are reluctant to speak up.  

As these attacks are likely to continue to alienate and isolate British Muslim women from society a petition is calling to launch an independent inquiry into Islamophobia in major political parties.
