Religious Hatred: Islam
To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the announcement by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government on 22 January (HC Deb, col 18), that they are giving £144,000 of support jointly to the Holocaust Educational Trust and the Union of Jewish Students to tackle anti-Semitism, prejudice and intolerance on university campuses, how much money they are allocating, if any, to Muslim groups in the UK for tackling Islamophobia.
Answered on: 06 February 2018

Hate crime of any kind, directed against any community, race or religion has absolutely no place in our society. Action Against Hate, the UK Government's Plan for tackling hate crime sets out how the Government will tackle this divisive crime. We have given since 2011 £1.9 million to Tell MAMA to tackle anti-Muslim hatred and Islamophobia. Tell Mama also offers support to victims and works with the criminal justice agencies to bring perpetrators to justice. We also provide £85,000 to the StreetWise 'Stand UP' project which works in schools to tackle anti-Muslim hatred and anti-Semitism.
