enar reportThe European Network against Racism warned that Islamophobia, or discrimination against Muslims, is widespread in many European countries.

In France for instance, 85% of all Islamophobic acts target women.

The survey which is part of ENAR’s Shadow Report on Racism in Europe says that manifestations of Islamophobia include discrimination and violence towards Muslims, criminal damage to Islamic buildings, and protests against the building of mosques even in countries, such as Poland, where some Muslim communities have been established and integrated for centuries.
