The Number Of Anti-Muslim Hate Groups In The U.S. Tripled In 2016

There were 34 such groups in the U.S. in 2015 and 101 last year, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Annual Census of Hate Groups published Wednesday. That’s a 197 percent rise and “by the far the most dramatic change” among extremist groups in the U.S.

“Anti-Muslim hate has been expanding rapidly for more than two years now, driven by radical Islamist attacks including the June mass murder of 49 people at an Orlando, Fla., gay nightclub, the unrelenting propaganda of a growing circle of well-paid ideologues, and the incendiary rhetoric of Trump — his threats to ban Muslim immigration, mandate a registry of Muslims in America, and more,” Mark Potok, a senior fellow at SPLC, wrote in the report

  1. You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I find this topic to be really one thing which I think I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complex and very large for me. I am looking forward in your next submit, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

    1.Women stop wearing Hijab in public place
    2.Muslim stop create Halal restaurant, grocery, Islamic Bank,
    3. Muslim who live in Christian countries have to demand Saudi and Iran to obey Human Right, freedom of religion and expression.

    As long as Saudi and Iran treat Christians unjust, Islamophobia will not stop to treat Muslim unjust in Christian countries.
