Tell Mama, the Muslim ‘anti-hate’ pressure group, on 22nd March:
Iman Atta, the director of Tell Mama, said the figures showed a troubling rise. “This shows that some people see Muslims as fair game for hate and it is now clear that we have an ongoing and persistent ideology of hate that is generating a focus on Muslims,” she said. “Muslims in New Zealand were killed and British Muslims feel the anger of bigots. It is perverse.”
They demand something be done. So an award winning filmmaker makes a film to highlight hate crimes.
Tell Mama, the Muslim ‘anti-hate’ pressure group, on 31st March:
Tell Mama’s founder, Fiyaz Mughal, said: “This film should be withdrawn immediately. Following the Christchurch attacks, there is a lot of fear among Muslims. The Martyrs just promotes this. Many Muslims will see it and be too afraid to go out. The film is unnecessarily sensationalist. It involves excellent film-making skills, but what use is this if all you are doing is spreading more intolerance and hatred?”
There’s no pleasing these people, is there? So why does the government keep trying?
