British MP writes letter to French President against Islamophobia
He expressed concerns over his treatment of French Muslims and rising Islamophobia.
He also expressed concern over recent legislation passed by the French Senate to ban the hijab for girls under the age of 18.
That risks encouraging religious hatred against Muslims.
Afzal Khan, as vice chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims also referenced a report.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres also cited that report which discovered that suspicion, hatred and discrimination towards Muslims has risen to “epidemic proportions.”
