What Does Islamophobia Mean? Here’s What You Think of the Recently Released Definition

by in Identity on 30th November, 2018

The APPG definition of Islamophobia was released on the 28th November 2018.

The definition reads as  Islamophobia is “rooted in racism” and says it’s “a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness.” The new definition was agreed on the same week by the All Party Parliamentary group (APPG) on British muslims.

Whilst a definition may help institutions, governments and other bodies like the Police identify and record Islamophobia better the definition itself may need exploring as raised by British Muslims on Social media over the last few days.

Amaliah have made a short video about the release of the new definition here:
