An all party Parliamentary group on Islamophobia

posted on Wednesday September 1 2010

This briefing is a call for the establishment of an All Party Parliamentary Group on Islamophobia tasked with executing ECRI’s recommendations on monitoring and challenging intolerance and discrimination against Muslims through a ‘regular and even closer process of consultation with representatives of the Muslim communities of the UK’ and through the elaboration of an overall strategy against Islamophobia.

Consultation response Code of practice for the acceptable use of advanced imaging technology (security scanners) in an aviation security environment

Whatever stipulations are included in the Interim Code of Practice there is a strong body of evidence from research into stop and search policies and policing procedures which give good cause for concern that the right to freedom of religion and non-discrimination will be breached in relation to Muslim passengers.
