MPACUK: Islamophobia in the UK



18 year old Chelsea Lambie (member of the Scottish Defence League) and 39 year old Douglas Cruikshank attacked a mosque in Edinburgh. They wrapped bacon around the door handles of the mosque, threw bacon into the property and ran away laughing. The Crown claimed the offence was racially aggravated.

Once again, political ignorance of mosques has contributed to them being attacked. Muslim schools, dress code, mosques, morals and values are under intense scrutiny. Despite such sacrilegious media attention, the majority of mosques do nothing to teach the community how to defend themselves from Islamophobia.

Until Muslims learn to defend their rights, freedoms and religion, we could see Islamophobic attacks increase in the near future.

There is only one God, and His Messengers are….

As Muslims, we testify that all the Prophets that were sent from Adam to Noah to Abraham to Moses to Jesus and finally, to Muhammad, are all Messengers of God.
