Press Release: IHRC response to Aisha Azmi verdict.

Chair of IHRC, Massoud Shadjareh said:

\”The tribunal’s finding that teaching assistant Aisha Azmi was victimised is much welcomed. However we note that this victimisation was supported by Ministers of the state, MPs and even the Prime Minister. The recent weeks have seen a victimisation of not just Ms. Azmi but Muslims across the UK by politicians and media alike, and we hope that the tribunal’s findings will be a wake-up call to all those who have jumped on the anti-Muslim bandwagon.\”
