Islamophobia, or the fear and hatred of all things relating to Islam and Muslims, is becoming mainstream and deadly. Whether it's radio talk show hosts, columnists or extremists who promise to kill Muslim women, there is a great danger to Muslims.
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.
