Muslims and Islamophobia

The US has had no shortage of institutionalised Islamophobia post-9/11, with the operation of Guantanamo Bay, legislating spying on communities, entrapment, and many other clear cases of inequality and racism towards Muslim communities. There, and across the pond in Europe, Muslims face the same struggle against state, politicians, and media alike in having to prove their loyalty and humanity....

This should come as no surprise as the demonisation of Islam by the West is not something new. As a matter of fact, in Covering Islam, the late Edward Said made it clear that the Western media had purposely distorted the news on Islam and the Middle East to shape a negative view of Arabs and Islam....

I have never shirked this responsibility as mayor of London, loudly challenging all forms of racism — including the foul anti-Semitism that has become all too common within the Labour party. It’s now time for the prime minister to do the same, and to take on the poisonous Islamophobia within her own ranks....

Ironically, some of those who claim that there is a direct causal link between radical Islamic beliefs and jihadist violence are the very same people who are now accused of having blood on their hands for the Christchurch massacre....

The hate speeches are more than just ‘freedom of speech’. Hate speeches do lead to violence. Hate results in killings. Islamophobia results in killings. Anti-Semitism and racism result in killings...

Adoption of an unbiased policy by the UN against the societies that indulge in discrimination and violence against religious minorities to achieve their political or sectarian agenda may help curb the religious violence....

The first time I remember hearing Islam equated with terrorism from the pulpit, I was a 17-year-old junior at Heritage Christian School in Indianapolis, where my mom was—still is, in fact—an elementary teacher. It was 1998, long before Islamophobia seized the Western mainstream.....

In Brenton Tarrant, the fascist murderer responsible for the Christchurch massacre, we see can see Islamophobia, or anti-Muslim bigotry, for what it is – an ideology intimately attached to genocide and mass murder. ...

Islamophobia, although not a homogenised discourse or an ‘epistemological knowledge construct’, takes on emerging dynamics from anxieties and histories, which itself is a result of collaboration and resistances of Muslim-Christian historical relations....

 

The manifesto crafted by one of the White terrorists who carried out the terror makes reference to the U.S. President Donald Trump and draws on the hate propaganda that is a key element of U.S. public relations....

Islamophobia in the Conservative Party is institutional and should be dealt as such. If the politicians leading us continue to ignore this problem, the consequences could be dire - both for the party and Britain at large....

 

Islamophobia within the UK has been a pertinent issue for many years. However, in the last two years there has been a surge in anti-Muslim prejudice and not only within British society but also within the ruling Conservative party....

 

While as the traditional republic assimilation involved a gradual eradication of important cultural differences so that all be considered equals despite their ethnic and racial differences, insertion aims to keep the migrants in a permanent state of cultural and social segregation....

 

However, Muslim Clergy leaders need to present a true picture of Islam to combat the distortions circulated about Islam and Muslim-dominated countries must impose regulations in accordance with Islamic Shariah to put an end to all sorts of discrimination that will also eliminate myths about our religion.....

Although Islam emerged from the early books such as the Zabur, Torah and the Testaments finally taking the form of the Quran yet these Abrahamic faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam are at loggerheads with each other....

 

“Islamophobia is rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness”.....

 

We examined this and found that U.S. newspapers associate Muslims with far more negativity than terrorism or extremism would explain. Further, articles about Muslims that have nothing to do with terrorism are substantially more negative than articles about Catholics, Jews or Hindus....

 

Recently, an Arabic press review revealed that the French yellow vest protests were blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood. First, the former chief of the Dubai Police, Dhahi Khalfan, tweeted an accusation that the Muslim Brotherhood was behind the yellow vest protests. But Khalfan is not alone. In the pro-government press in Egypt, reports were published that accused the Muslim Brotherhood of being behind the yellow vests. ...

A prospective tenant with the name Muhammad is most likely to face rejection from landlords across the rental market in the UK. Ethnic minorities, particularly Muslims, suffer more discrimination when looking for rooms or homes to rent, say experts after an investigation carried out by The Guardian newspaper. It revealed that Muslims suffered from persistent bias either conscious or unconscious....

The racialisation of religion is a factor and an increasingly potent one. Some have shown ideological and religious-based prejudice toward Islam and Muslims, of a type that goes beyond reasonable criticism. It must be stressed because many online comments ignored this — the report made clear that Islam and Muslims must not be above reasoned criticism....

Islamophobia has existed almost since the beginning of time: from the time our Prophet Nuh called his people towards the oneness of Allah, through each era of each prophet including the era of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). That is, today’s Islamophobia is not something unique or isolated. The difference between Islamophobia during the time of the prophets and Islamophobia today is that when the prophets and their communities went through it, they had the support and comfort of their prophet with them....

 

The genocide against the (remaining) Rohingya in Myanmar is “ongoing” and the government has no interest in establishing a fully functional democracy. That was the conclusion of the most recent report published by the UN Fact-Finding Mission to Myanmar yesterday.

 

Yet both Turkey’s President and the Bangladesh Prime Minister use the same accusations of Islamic terrorism against their domestic opponents as are levelled against the Rohingya in Myanmar. And they do so for the same reason...

Just imagine what it would be like if armed security forces stormed into your home, arrested your loved ones, put them in a concentration camp, and took away your children. This is what happened to the family of 44-year-old Turghunjan, who I met while on a visit to Turkey to interview Uighur refugees....

 

And Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s record has been scoured for evidence of what his appointment to the Supreme Court would mean for future decisions in which Christian beliefs clash with law and policy. But when it comes to religious liberty for Americans, there’s a disturbing trend that has drawn much less attention. In recent years, state lawmakers, lawyers and influential social commentators have been making the case that Muslims are not protected by the First Amendment. Why? Because, they argue, Islam is not a religion. This once seemed like an absurd fringe argument. But it has gained momentum...
