Muslims in Britain are at the sharp end of racism right now. Since 11 September 2001 Islamophobia has become the most visible – and “respectable” – form of racism in the Western world. The fascist BNP declared May’s local elections to be “a referendum on Islam”. As anti-racists in the UK have done many times in response to anti-Semitism or racism against British black and Asian people, we must reject the racist myths about Islam and stand shoulder-to-shoulder Muslim and non-Muslim to defeat racism and Islamophobia.
We are proud to announce the first Love Music Hate Islamophobia event, Muslim and non-Muslim musicians performing together, as well as a debate on the issue of Islamophobia and how we can fight it. Performers and panellists include Mecca 2 Medina and Sadiq Khan MP.
