Islamophobia is here and it is real. There is a deep-seated current of anti-Muslim prejudice in American society today. Survey after survey has quantified this. Meanwhile, many Muslims remain conflicted about challenging this intolerance.
Islamophobia is real. It is hard at work.
It has led to governments passing legislation targeting Muslims and their faith practices in the name of “fighting terrorism”. It has led to killing of innocent people.
You may have personally experienced it or know a family member, friend or acquaintance who has. This new racism must be made known and fought against. So let us take charge of ourselves and our future.
