Muslims in the UK are demanding full legal protection from “Islamophobia,” and the definition of “Islamophobia” has finally been articulated:
Islamophobia is rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness.
There are already hate crime laws in the UK:
A hate crime can include verbal abuse, intimidation, threats, harassment, assault and bullying, as well as damage to property
What exactly are the Muslim Council of Britain and other Muslim groups seeking that is not already covered by British law?
In Canada, the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) faced opposition for a differently worded but similar definition of “Islamophobia” which implied that one must not criticize Muslims and Islam. The group’s definition of “Islamophobia” was presented to the Toronto District School Board in an Islamic resource guide for Islamic Heritage Month. The definition stated that “Islamophobia” was “fear, prejudice, hatred or dislike directed against Islam or Muslims, or towards Islamic politics or culture.”
As with “Islamophobia,” what precisely does “Muslimness” mean?
Demands from Islamic groups are becoming increasingly brazen, and are in line with Sharia blasphemy laws. Such law is regarded as divine and forms the foundation of Islamic politics and culture, so the implications of Muslim demands about “Islamophobia” in Western nations are clear: this is an attempt to criminalize any criticism of Islam or Muslims.
Sharia has no place in any democracy, but mainstream Muslim lobbies will relentlessly continue to push for Sharia supremacy, exploiting any possible means, demanding that Muslim misdeeds committed in line with Sharia provisions be hidden or under-reported.
It is wrong that the 15-year-old Muslim Syrian refugee in Huddersfield was bullied. But what about the countless assaults, the Muslim rape gangs, and the jihad attacks that Muslims have perpetrated against infidels?
