describes what you can expect from its contents: "Current discussions around Islamophobia present it as just critiquing a set of ideas... which prevents muslims or those perceived to be muslim from being able to challenge this form of racism as a very real thing."
----------Jasvir: "I have been subjected to Islamophobia and I'm a Sikh."
Samayya: "We were approached by a man... he started shouting racist and islamophobic slurs... and said 'do you want me to show you my stanley knife?' "
