Denial, obfuscation, apathy: why it’s so hard to get Islamophobia on the political agenda | Miqdaad Versi
I’ve been trying to hold Boris Johnson’s Tories accountable for their anti-Muslim members. Here’s what I’ve learned• Miqdaad Versi is assistant secretary general of the Muslim Council of BritainIslamophobia is apparently a “natural reaction” to Islam, with the faith being “the most viciously sectarian of all religions in its heartlessness towards unbelievers”.

Here are three steps Twitter, Facebook, Google and the like could take today. Continue reading...
