Over the past five years, there has been a rapid increase in anti-islamic attitudes within the United Kingdom. I believe this increase is directly related to the right-wing media’s eagerness to publish articles that feature misconceptions and false information. I spoke to two sisters at a mosque in Southend-on-Sea in Essex, about how Islamophobia and the media has affected their lives.
In words: “Since the war on terror began…”
Out words: “…religion doesn’t define who you are”
