ANTI-MUSLIM HATRED SINCE WOOLWICH
– RESPONSE BY FIYAZ MUGHAL
This report looks at the impact of the Rotherham Grooming crisis and the impacts that it has on the rhetoric of far right groups like Britain First on-line.

‘Anti-Muslim Overview, Analysis & Cumulative Extremism’,
This is the latest report which independently analyses the TELL MAMA data covering May 2013 through to the end of February 2014. The report looks at a number of trends on anti-Muslim prejudice and highlights a range of specific areas which include the fact that visibility, (by wearing the Hijab or the Hijab and the Niqab), may play a role in the targeting of individuals. Furthermore, the over-representation of Far Right sympathisers in anti-Muslim prejudice is highlighted once again. The report also covers the period after the murder of Lee Rigby and the anti-Muslim hate crime spike that took place after the murder. Lastly, the report should be read in conjunction with these links which provide more context on our work. The links can be found here, here and here.
