Islamophobia set to be documented by all Police Forces
Monday, October 19th, 2015
Prime Minister David Cameron announces that Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hate will be recorded as a separate category by all police forces in England and Wales. This brings Islamophobia in line with anti-Semitic attacks which have been recorded separately for quite some time now.
The move is broadly welcomed by Muslim groups and will go a long way in tracking the recent surge in hate crimes against Muslims as have been seen in recent public outbursts against Muslims and incidents of violence being reported.
