Dear the Muslim Community Helpline,
My names Joshua Guinea and I’m a Masters student at the University College London (UCL) and am currently undertaking a dissertation project which focuses on anti-Muslim hate crime. I chose this project specifically as anti-Muslim hate crime is continuing to rise but remains an issue that continues to be neglected by academia and the police. As such, my project aims to raise a greater awareness and understanding of this crime in an attempt to inspire further research and a greater ability to prevent it in the future.I have studied this topic for the last six months and performed a poster presentation recently designed to help people better understand anti-Muslim hate crime. Due to the nature of your organisation I thought best to contact you about my project.
I would be extremely grateful if you could assist me in my project and fill out this questionnaire before circulating it onwards. So far I’ve had great responses and would love to receive feedback from you also. Islamic organisations in Birmingham, London, Southend and Glasgow have already been in contact. If you could share my survey on your twitter feed, Facebook page or with your members it would be greatly appreciated.
I’m collecting responses over the next 7 days and aim to collect enough to ensure this project fully reflects the challenges faced by the UK’s Muslim communities. All you need to do is copy and paste the following link into your web bar, with it only taking a few minutes to fill out thereon in.
Thank you ever so much for your participation. Please contact me if you wish to know any more about the project.
all the best,
