IHRC has received a number of complaints about Daily Telegraph / Sunday Telegraph reporters and researchers contacting Muslims asking for assistance with research. ALERT: Harassment by UK Newspaper, The Daily Telegraph / Sunday Telegraph

IHRC has received a number of complaints about Daily Telegraph / Sunday Telegraph reporters and researchers contacting Muslims asking for assistance with research. IHRC has been informed that the Sunday Telegraph may be publishing an article tomorrow on Muslims who allegedly raise money for fighting overseas, or who provide or receive military training.

We are concerned that in pursuit of another sensationalist story demonising the British Muslim community, many people may be misinformed or misled by reporters asking for assistance and information. We would suggest that co-operation be withheld from the Daily / Sunday Telegraph in this matter, as we feel they are making no contribution except simply fuelling Islamophobia.

If you have been harassed by such a call, please let us know. IHRC is deeply concerned at the reports it has received, and has itself been solicited in this manner.[END]
