When will the government address Islamophobia?Watch
But its like racism; big issue, and people are often attacked, as you say, but its not something that is resolved even though its existed for many more years.
It isn't illegal to criticise religion.
Prepare to join the list.
How haven't they integrated? I would like to see you in an emergency situation where you refuse to be treated by a Muslim medic. Or maybe the Asian guy in the corner shop refuses to serve you. Perhaps the cab driver refuses to drop you off. Maybe it's just that you're sick of all (every single one of them) of the British muslims bombing different parts of the UK up on a daily basis. Them muslims helping out in the floods; it's all part of their plan to befriend us and then blow us all up with one big nuke, right? Amirite??

for reference "Antisemitism (also spelled anti-Semitism or anti-semitism) is prejudice against, hatred of, or discrimination against Jews as an ethnic, religious, or racial group"
I am vehemently against Islamaphobia the same way I am against Antisemitism. There should not be a double standard.
Islamophobia is defined as dislike or prejudice against Islam or Muslims
Prejudice against Muslims is discriminatory. It is morally reprehensible and legally sanctionable. It is already illegal to harass or incite hate speech against Muslims, their right to freely practice their religion is uninhibited and there is a stigma attached to anti-Muslim sentiment. Enough is already being done about anti-Muslim feeling.
But prejudice and dislike of Islam does not need to be addressed, it needs to be welcomed. No ideology is sacrosanct or exempt from criticism. And with so many objectionable precepts of Islam, anyone who considers themselves at all liberal or attached to Western values should be critical of Islam.
Islamophobia is a word which attempts to conflate criticism of Islam with homophobia or racism and in so doing stifle criticism or debate on Islam.
It is a nonsense term, and the sooner it falls out of use the better.
I do not believe it is necessary, political correctness has gone way to far- I know this is very off topic but my mate got banned from football for chanting "We heard you ran from an aids test". Lets get back on topic Islamaphobia is a crime so is discriminating against any other religion- It is part of the equality act and religion and race is is covered by the act, so they are legally equal to white British people. Also racial aggrivation is a crime- but i really understand the frustrations some people have with Islam - they take religion far to seriously. Islam is attacked by the Media more than anything but i disagree with letting thousands of muslims or asylum seekers to Britain- It will increase the threat to National Security and this is because the more muslims we let in the higher the chance of ISIS becoming operational and expanding into the UK- I already believe there is radical muslims here. I have notvoiced much of an opinion here, and i bet I will still get a warning about this post, Like i did for saying Eastern European football fans would kick the **** out of Afghanis in the toughest ethnic group thread
I mean, Islamophobia is a feeling , at least a way of thinking. So even if the government does something, it would not change people inside I guess
Ive never heard of Christianphobia/Hinduphobia etc. so why is Islamophobia a supposed thing??
