Title Islamophobia definition is no threat to free speech Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet theguardian.com Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 17/05/19 Description There is strong evidence that Muslim communities are suffering considerable discrimination. Of course, there are different types of racism – faced by Jewish, Muslim and black communities – which have varying attributes. What connects these as racisms is the common experience of discrimination, and the use of cultural pathologies and stereotypes to vilify racialised minorities for decades.
We strongly urge ministers and the government to recognise that racism must be an integral part of any definition of Islamophobia.
