In an interview with Muslim News, Labour Party leader Ed Miliband says he would make "Islamophobia" illegal.
“We are going to make it an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people’s records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime,” he told Ahmed J Versi of Muslim News.
“We are going to change the law on this so we make it absolutely clear of our abhorrence of hate crime and Islamophobia. It will be the first time that the police will record Islamophobic attacks right across the country,” he added.
Miliband said that the Muslim community is an “incredibly important, incredibly rich, incredible asset to our country.”
In 2015, The Muslim Action forum called for depictions of Muhammad to be classified as "hate speech."
With such a vague term such as "Islamophobia," would Miliband be in favour of banning depictions of Muhammad?
