PRESS RELEASE: UK – Donald Trump voted Islamophobe of the Year

It should come as little surprise that Donald Trump has earned the distinction of the year’s worst Islamophobe after he won the same accolade in 2016. Since then he has been elected president of the USA and issued an executive order that has become known as the ‘Muslim ban’.

The winner in the Islamophobia Awards 2017’s ‘UK’ category is OFSTED who recently announced they would be quizzing young students who wore the hijab. The ‘News Media’ gong has gone to Fox News who have been fierce champions of Donald Trump and his discriminatory policies. This year’s winner in the ‘International’ category is Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi who has faced fierce criticism for her inaction when it comes to the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya people. The last honour is bestowed to the American television series Homeland in the ‘Book/Movie/TV’ category – a consecutive win after last year.

The event also recognised those who have fought against Islamophobia in the past year - usually against huge odds. This year’s honourees included Maz Saleem, Roshan Muhammad Salih and the Malaysian organisation MAPIM
