November is Islamophobia Awareness Month and Purley Masjid will be hosting an insightful talk on the Causes and Cures of Islamophobia given by MEND who arrange hundreds of Islamophobia awareness events around the UK during November.
MEND have received global accolades from the World Economic Forum, ODIHR and the EU parliament. They have the backing of major Muslim scholars such as Professor Tariq Ramadan, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi and Shaykh Abu Esa. They have partnered with the Electoral Commission, CPS, APPG, IPSO and Police across the country. Furthermore MEND have successfully worked with local MPs and Councillors across the country to progress with hate crime strategy.
This particular talk guides the community in identifying Islamophobia in all its forms (in the street, the media, at work and in schools) then advises them how to report it effectively to the right authorities (Police, Media watchdog, Local council) and how anyone can receive support and advice from MEND. This is especially important as the number of attacks increase whenever there is any high profile incident reported in the news. Don’t miss out and put a reminder for this in your diary now for Sunday 3rd November at Purley Masjid.
