A recent public inquiry revealed the extent of Islamophobia spread in Scotland where 100,000 Muslims live. The majority of Muslims confirmed that they are regularly exposed to hatred and racism because of their beliefs, especially in the streets and transport.
The Scottish Muslim Tasnim Nazeer has become the first TV reporter to appear with her Hijab on her country's channels. It took her 10 years of struggles, discrimination and exclusion to obtain her right to appear on the screen without giving up her Islamic identity.
The results of a survey conducted by Newcastle University showed that Islamophobia in Scotland has worsened over the past few years. It has made many Muslims feel like aliens in their own country because of their religious affiliation due to being exposed to abuse.
