Islamophobia…

Stereotyping Muslims leads directly to Islamophobia…

This means….?

Islamophobia is literally translated as the fear of Islam:

it is used to refer to prejudice or discrimination against Muslims and incorporates the perception that Islam has no values in common with other cultures, is inferior to the West and is a violent political ideology rather than a religion. The term itself dates back to the 1980s, but came into common usage after the September 11th attacks in America in 2001.

The full story…

Police are searching for a gang of about 20 Derby men after an attack on a Muslim couple on a train to Nottingham. AbidaMalik said the men called her and her husband Asif Ahmed terrorists. One man put Mr Ahmed in a headlock saying he was making a citizen’s arrest.

The gang boarded the train at Loughborough on Easter Sunday evening, after what British Transport Police believe was a drinking session. Officers have described it as an “unpleasant and nasty” incident.

AbidaMalik, who wears the hijab – or headscarf – was travelling home after a wedding in Leicester with her husband. She said: “I was full of fear, my heart was beating really fast and I felt so helpless because there was so many of them.”

“Everyone seemed too scared to do anything… Now I don’t want to travel on the train by myself, and I don’t want him (Asif) to go by himself. They could have stabbed him”.

BBC News, 8 April 2010

So what are the

dangers?

In WW2 the Jews were stereotyped as money grabbers, communists, greedy and the reason that Germany was in such a mess – and we know what happened as a result.

What has this got to do with today?

Stereotyping is still causing a lot of problems in modern day society…

Like what?

Predominantly RACISM – groups such as the EDL base their ideas and beliefs on stereotypes of Muslims as terrorists.

MUSLIM SICKOS’ MADDIE KIDNAP SHOCK.

Daily Star 28 April 2008

This does not refer to Muslims having any part in the disappearance of Madeline McCann, instead it refers to a website on which claims were made that Madeline’s parents were involved in her disappearance, a claim that had already been made

in several mainstream newspapers.

GET OFF MY BUS I NEED TO PRAY.

The Sun 28 March2008

The Sun claimed that the driver had ordered

people off his bus so that he could pray.

In actuality the bus driver had been ordered to stop his bus and tell the passengers to board the bus behind in order to maintain frequency as the bus was delayed, he was told not to allow any passengers to board his bus and was on a 10 minute break so he was allowed to do as he wished.
