Muslims Scholars Demand Investigation of Islamophobia within the Conservative Party
More than 300 British Imam and Muslim Public figure have written a joint letter asking the investigation of Islamophobia within the Conservative Party. While they welcome the investigation initiated by the Conservative Party on Boris Johnson’s comments, a full investigation within the party is required. In total over 1,000 signatures have been collected within 24 hours and include some of the most senior Imams and committee members of significant Mosques. They are concerned with the increase in Islamophobia and state it has become mainstream. The normalisation of hatred against Muslims need challenging and they call upon the Conservative to start an inquiry of their Party. The signatories that included people across England and various schools of thought state, if the Conservative party fails to take action it will signal that Islamophobia is acceptable.
