Evidence of anti-Muslim hate crime

Evidence of anti-Muslim hate crime


Written by: IRR News Team

Muslims are still being specifically targeted according to research on racial violence.

Evidence produced by the Institute of Race Relations, as a submission to the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights 2010 annual report on hate crimes in the OSCE region, documents a distinct and discernible pattern of anti-Muslim violence within the UK. Although anti-Muslim hate crimes take place within a wider context of racial attacks there is an explicit manifestation of violence targeted specifically at Muslims. The IRR’s submission reveals evidence of a persistent pattern of physical attacks, verbal abuse and the vandalism of Islamic institutions throughout 2010.
