    Islamophobia is “rampant” on social media and affects even the tamest online debates when Muslims attempt to engage, new research has suggested.

    The Birmingham City University report ‘Online Hate Against Muslims on Social Media' said the three most common phrases used to attack Twitter users were ‘Muslim paedos’, Muslim terrorists’ and ‘Muslim scum’.

    The research analysed three hashtags – #Woolwich, #Muslim and #Islam. The majority of tweets (72%) were posted by males and over 75% of the tweets examined displayed a strong Islamophobic feeling. On September 11, 2013, the hashtag #----Muslims was trending, the research pointed out.

    Of the tweets under that hashtag, the most common phrases were Muslim pigs (9%), Muzrats (14%), Muslim Paedos (30%), Muslim terrorists (22%), Muslim scum (15%), and Pisslam (10%).

    "Some tweets used a number of hostile hashtags tonote how #Islamkills and whites would become a minority unless the Muzrats are stopped," the article added.

    Imran Awan, deputy director of the centre for applied criminology, said the study "shows that both government and the police need to do much more to tackle the rampant online abuse and harassment Muslims are suffering, often purely because they are engaging in social media in the same way as anyone else.

    "The problem has been particularly extreme since the murder of soldier Lee Rigby last year in Woolwich, which appears to have prompted a sharp spike in online anti-Muslim hate.

    The overwhelming number of the 500 tweets were written and posted by people who were living in the United Kingdom, although there were some tweets from users who were based in Australia and the United States, the study said.

    These tweets sound a lot like what a 12 year old on a CoD chat room would say, or someone with that level of intelligence and awareness.

    "That has to be enough with them Islams" :rofl:.

    This kind of "research" totally ignores the other side of aisle. That is when muslims engage in hate filled derogatory messages and even threatening other religions and non-muslims. Just go to any muslim forum they are busy to prove their superiority and justifying their brothers in ISIS or Al Qaeda.
    Go to a paki forum and see how they take pride in the barbaric acts committed by islamists against kaafirs. Like raping of hindu women during islamic invasions.

    Also note that these british trolls are just trolls. They are fat ass kids sitting on sofa and drinking coke. While the Islamists are dangerous and they turn their words into reality.


    P.S: Most probably this research was funded by the same kind of seculars in britian which plague Indian universities and are involved in history negationism.

    Why not ?
    EDL says/claims that it is an anti-Sharia anti-Muslim organization. So why not ? :)

    British cant do anything more than rants on internet.

    Pakis would overpopulate them and breed their women as they are doing now.

    British should start looking for a new Island. :lol:

    Female victims suffer attacks because they appear 'more visibly Muslim'

    Teesside University study finds 54% of Islamophobia victims are female

    Four in every five assailants identified by the researchers were male

    Muslim student Nahid Almanea, 31, was fatally stabbed 16 times being a Muslim

    Attacks on Muslims went up nearly fourfold after Drummer Lee Rigby's murder in May 2013 in south-east London, including 23 assaults and 13 attacks involving extreme violence.

    Fiyaz Mughal, director of Tell Mama, claimed Islamophobic attacks are widely under-reported, with just 24 of the 43 police force areas in England and Wales label crime as religiously aggravated.


    Victims reported a total of 734 incidents to the hotline between the start of May last year and 28 February 2014, broken down into 599 incidents of online abuse and 135 offline attacks – an increase of almost 20% on the same period the previous year.

    @jus

    Stabbing is extremely common in England. It is a crime of opportunity not targeting imho.
