Muslims urged to report hate crime.

ROTHERHAM’S Muslim community is being urged to report prejudice or abuse under a new initiative being launched in the north of England.

Organisers of the Tell MAMA campaign say anti-Muslim feeling and crime is growing, but they are urging victims not to suffer in silence.

The Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks campaign has set up a website. www.tellmamauk.org, where abuse and hate crime can be reported.

Spokesman Faisal Hanif said Victims could describe the abuse suffered and add the location of the attack so that MAMA could  analyse places where attacks took place and identify issues like Far Right activity.

Victims would also be referred for support to organisations such as Neighbourhood Watch, Crimestoppers, the Citizens’ Advice Bureau or Victim Support.

He said that Tell MAMA had brought 13 prosecutions had and assisted 540 people over alleged hate incidents.

The initiative is being publicised at mosques and community centres across the north of England.

To report an incident, visit www.tellmamauk.org. Alternatively, you can call 0800 456 1226, text on 01157070007 or email info@tellmamauk.org. You can also tweet to @tellmamauk or find the campaign on Facebook at TELLMAMAUK

    How racist is that so Muslims get support and others get nothing..I will say this have worked for the NHS for 20 years and the amount of people over the years who have pulled the racist card is always by Black people and many of them Muslims..this country is not a Muslim country but yet we have to bow to give them allowances or we are Racists...sorry gotta say this but if your White and working there is no hope in this country!
