This is the abuse that has been directed at the British Muslim Youth – a Rotherham based, national organisation which works on empowering young British Muslims. The founder of the organisation, Muhbeen Hussain, has been vocal in his campaigning against child sexual exploitation and against racism and prejudice. Yet, the British Muslim Youth continue to have openly racist and prejudiced comments posted on their Facebook page.
Colleagues at the British Muslim Youth have suggested that the intimidatory and racist comments have not stopped and are a regular occurrence on their site. The hate flits between racism and anti-Muslim prejudice. In particular, over the last year since the release of the Jay report in August 2014, anti-Muslim and racist comments have dogged the site meaning that comments have had to be deleted regularly.
These are just some of the comments that they receive.
