The Daily Times of Pakistan includes an extract from Leonie Jackson's book entitled:  Islamophobia in Britain: The Making of a Muslim Enemy:

Since 2001, Muslims in Britain have been constructed as the nation’s significant 'other’ – an internal and external enemy that threatened both social cohesion and national security.” Spreading of Islamophobic content by media and publishing industry is adding fuel to the fire due to constant exposure of non-Muslims to years of news coverage, TV shows, movies as well as books and journal articles filled with political rhetoric and misrepresentation of Muslims and Islam as “bad” and “evil”.
