Muslim hate monitor to lose backing
A controversial project claiming to measure anti-Muslim attacks will not have its government grant renewed after police and civil servants raised concerns about its methods.
The project, called Tell Mama, claimed that there had been a "sustained wave of attacks and intimidation" against British Muslims after the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby, with 193 "Islamophobic incidents" reported to it, rising to 212 by last weekend.
The group's founder, Fiyaz Mughal, said he saw "no end to this cycle of violence", describing it as "unprecedented". The claims were unquestioningly repeated in the media.
