Seminar: Launching Islamophobia Awareness Month

Islamophobia or anti-Muslim hatred is reaching worrying heights in Britain and across Europe. This ugly phenomena gained currency in part due to the popular thesis developed by Francis Fukuyama and Samuel Huntington that argued about an impending clash of civilisations between Islam and the West. Today, racists and fascists groups like the English Defence League are pushing this thesis of hatred, creating a climate of fear and suspicion against Muslims. Islamophobic prejudice is prevalent in the mainstream; on display in political life, in the media and in the attitudes of the police and the courts.
 
To deconstruct and challenge some of the stereotypes about Islam and Muslims, prominent British organisations and campaigners are launching the Islamophobia Awareness Month (I AM), to take place throughout November 2012. The month-long campaign will see activities and projects throughout the UK and Europe.
 
 Date & Time : Friday 2nd November 2012  - 6pm
 
Venue: London Muslim Centre, 46-92 Whitechapel Rd, London E1 1JX
