Event details

The ‘Islamophobia Awards’ is IHRC’s annual comedy event aims to highlight prevailing prejudices and subvert them using humour. The evening consists of satire, musical entertainment, a fundraising auction, a sumptuous meal and of course the spoof awards themselves.

Mock awards will be presented (in absentia) to the most Islamophobic in the following categories:

British Politician of the Year
International Politician
Media Personality

and also Islamophobe of the Year, which was won last year by George W. Bush for his outstanding achievement in this field.
