Islamophobia is something that has been rising since the terrorist group ISIL has gotten more extreme with terrorizing. The recent activity that was the bombing in Paris made an up rise of 275% of hatred towards the Muslim people.
In the United Kingdom there have been protest during Muslim events. In New Castle there was a demo for a group called Pegida which is a anti-Islam and anti-immigrant street movement. In the streets if UK, it has attracted up to 250,00 supporters. Emma Scott and Marion Rodgers which are both Pegida UK organizers say that is worst thing that can happen is the “oppression of women”. Throughout their interview with VICE news they stated many things that they dislike about Muslims such as they wearing burkas and child marriage. They later end with saying that they believe that it can happen to the UK if the government keep letting in Muslims and immigrants. Both Scott and Rodgers say that Muslims aim is to dominate everything.
Throughout Europe there have been insults due to the way Muslims dress. Some citizens have went up to Muslims and say that it’s too hot to wear their outfit. A girl name Stacey Eden has been video cast world wide for defending a Muslim. She was on a train and a white female started attacking a Muslim. The attacking female kept saying “why are you wearing that”, Stacey defended and said “she wears it for herself”.
ISIL has no connection towards the religion Islam. They are Muslims that have taken the religion to another level. They have retreated from what the real meaning of Islam is and the peace practices that Muslims have. ISIL has degenerated so many things but the Islam religion and people are fighting back. There are more good Muslims than the bad ones which is apart of ISIL.
