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”. So wrote Boris Johnson in the Spectator in 2005. Related: Sayeeda Warsi on Tory Islamophobia: 'It feels like I'm in an abusive relationship' Continue reading...

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