Muslim Family Suffered Years of Abuse

Umm Hidayah and her family suffered years of Islamophobic abuse from their neighbours. She was left horrified after becoming a victim of hate crime in her own home.

Umm Hidayah’s neighbour was convicted of religiously aggravated harassment and given a suspended sentence.
