Alert: UK - Concerns regarding demonisation of Islam and Muslims by Community Security Trust publications – Briefing now online

IHRC's latest briefing looks at the Islamophobic nature of Community Security Trust publications and expresses concern regarding the demonization of Islam and Muslims in these publications.

'This briefing seeks to explore some of the contentions made in articles posted on the Community Security Trust (CST) website. The IHRC contends that the CST articles, conducted with little academic rigor, are steeped in Islamophobic rhetoric that demonises Islam and its adherents. Lacking in methodology and utilising haphazard evidence, the CST articles attempt to depict Islam as being an agent of violence, supportive of terrorism and a threat to adherents of the Jewish faith.'
