Anti-Muslim prejudice expanding in UK
A new report has revealed that anti-Muslim prejudice is growing rapidly in the UK.
According to the report by the anti-racist group Hope Not Hate, 24 different far-right groups are currently attempting to incite anti-Muslim hatred in the UK.
The analysis, also suggests that Islamophobic sentiments have been on the rise following the terror attacks in Paris.
The Infidels, an extremist group with increasing Nazi leanings, the South East Alliance, and the Henry Jackson Society, are among the organizations mentioned in the report.
Meanwhile, the Guardian reported that the former leader of the English Defence League, Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, will make his political comeback by fronting the relaunch of the UK arm of Pegida, the German anti-Islam organization whose provocative rhetoric has prompted attacks on refugees.
Hate crimes triple
According to the Metropolitan Police hate crimes against Muslims in London have increased more than threefold following the terrorist attacks in Paris.
Now, British Muslims are concerned that they may face further attacks after MPs voted to launch airstrikes against Daesh terrorists in Syria.
The Metropolitan Police has already announced that incidents of Islamophobia increased dramatically between October 2014 and 2015 – rising by 41.8 percent.
