As Baitul Futuh Burns, the Bigotry of Some Muslims Towards Ahmaddiyas Comes Out

“Love for All, Hatred for None“, is the motto of the Ahmaddiya community globally. It is a community that is openly persecuted in Pakistan where the State structures are built to discriminate against them after the dictator Zia Ul Haque introduced stringent laws into the country as a way of building up support with militant

‘House Muslims’ is just as bad as ‘House N……’.

There are those on Twitter who think that they are fighting the good fight against racism and who shout Islamophobia at the slightest drop of a hat, thereby devaluing the word. The moral guardians of the Internet, these individuals are mainly aged between 20-35 and who spend their time on Twitter railing against prejudice and

Did an anti-Muslim petition achieve a parliamentary debate with fake signatures?

Did an anti-Muslim petition achieve a parliamentary debate with fake signatures?

MPs are to debate claims that “foreign citizens are taking all our benefits” and immigrants are “trying to change UK into a Muslim country” on October 19. Any parliamentary petition signed by more than 100,000 people becomes eligible for debate. But are the 186,174 signatures collected genuine? The petition first appeared on a thread on Democracy Forum on August 26. When the poster first promoted the petition it had just 8 signatures. A day later, thanks to social media spamming, the number hit 1,000 signatures. As one poster reflected: “It’s now been shared on a few USA sites so hopefully will get a few more signatories”. By 7pm on August 27, the user who shared the petition wrote: “1400 is a reasonable number considering the petition is only 3 days old”. On September 3, a forum post confirmed that the petition had hit 8,000 signatures. But is that rise a product of online spam? Hours before that post, an individual in a 4chan discussion advocating the racist spamming of a pro-refugee petition wrote: “Guys 5,000 nearly signed this petition to end immigration to UK GET IN HERE, AND USE THE FROGS GENERATOR”. Screenshot of the post advocating the spam tactic [...]

Institutional Anti-Muslim Bigotry More Insidious

Anti-Muslim bigotry, it seems, comes in various shapes and guises. From the abuse on the street, through to the attack on a mosque or individual, there are multiple impacts. Yet, we should also ensure that we reflect on anti-Muslim bigotry within the workplace and how power relations can be used to further victimis those who

Robinson Endangers Rotherham Resident of Pakistani Muslim Heritage

The charade of Robinson leaving extremism behind has finally slipped as his tweets show an increasingly erratic and confused individual who plays up to conspiracy theorists and far right bigots. His attempt at going ‘mainstream’ has failed with only a handful of journalists still touting for his opinions when they have nothing else to fill
