What is it like to be a Muslim in Britain today?

Leave a comment

I stumbled across this article this morning on the guardian online. It features several bloggers narrating their experiences as a Muslim in Britain today and gives some insight into the present climate of Islamaphobia, and how the “regular” Muslim feels about this. With views ranging from traditional to multi-faith to depressed, this article makes for an interesting read (as do the comments at the bottom!). As always, it is important to remember that these are individual view points – and in no way symbolic of treatment of Muslims as a whole.
