HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

Islamophobia is sustained and justified by the myths we tell/are told about Muslims. This factsheet addresses some of these narratives, assessing their legitimacy using statistics/facts:

  • “Islam promotes violence and Muslims are violent.”
  • “Islam oppresses women and Muslims are misogynistic.”
  • “Islam is homophobic/transphobic, and Muslims are intolerant of queer/trans people.”
  • “Sharia law is a barbaric punitive system and we must safeguard against its imposition here.”
