TEHRAN, Dec. 07 (Press Shia Agency) – For the third consecutive year Islamic Human Rights Commission will be holding a conference focusing on tackling Islamophobia.

The event is set to take place on Saturday, December 10 2016 and will feature two renowned panels of speakers from varying backgrounds and disciplines.

This year’s conference will pay attention to the ways education, the legal system and the PREVENT/counter-terrorism regime coalesce to create an environment of hate that facilitates the operation of a de facto police state.

In the current climate where hate crime against Muslims is at unprecedented highs, the conference is a timely opportunity to examine the way these systems help to create and perpetuate such an environment. The IHRC report released in 2015 ‘Environment of Hate: The New Normal for Muslims in the UK’ received much acclaim for its examination of the situation currently facing Muslims.

Whilst the primary targets and victims of hateful discourse, discrimination and state and street violence are Muslims, many minority communities now feel a resurgence of hatred and everyone is impacted negatively. Speakers who are attending will be making presentations that are both individual and relevant to the topic before taking questions from the floor.
