In this important book, several leading media commentators examine the phenomenon of “Islamophobia” and ask how to tackle it.
Charting recent media controversies, from the Archbishop of Canterbury’s comments on Sharia law to the veil “debate”, the book argues that media hostility to Islam alienates Muslims and undermines efforts to combat extremism. With examples of press-fuelled myths about Islam in Britain, this is a captivating insight into how Muslims are depicted in the UK.
