UK: 'Hello, I am Muslim'

An international event aiming to break fears and prejudices against Muslims and promote empathy has been launched in King's Cross station in central London, the capital of Britain. The event this week will see young Muslims promoting mutual understanding in public places in various countries, including Germany, the Netherlands, France and Austria.

The Islamic Community Milli Gorus (ICMG) group said in a statement on Thursday that thousands of young Muslims living in Europe, Australia and Canada will take to the streets to deliver "their 'Hello, I am a Muslim' message to introduce themselves".

More than 500 mosques across Europe will also take part in the initiative, according to the ICMG statement. 

A study into the day-to-day experiences of British Muslims, carried out by the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) in 2016, found a sharp rise in the number of people reporting verbal abuse and an increase in the number of physical attacks since the survey was last undertaken in 2010.
