Dec 2, 2019 by

by Ann Farmer, The Conservative Woman: AFTER Friday’s terrorist attack in London, it has emerged that perpetrator Usman Khan had been released halfway through his 16-year sentence for an earlier terror plot, as have 74 other violent terrorists.  In a tragic irony, Khan was attending a seminar organised by Cambridge University in an effort to bring together offenders and those working to ‘deradicalise’ them.

What next for attempts to define ‘Islamophobia’?

Aug 30, 2019 by

from Civitas: One of the outstanding issues that Theresa May left for Boris Johnson’s government to pick up this summer concerned demands for there to be an officially-sanctioned definition of ‘Islamophobia’. Campaigners have long been calling for one, and the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims increased the pressure late last year by producing its own definition, describing Islamophobia as a ‘type of racism’.
