Last quote by Nesrine Malik

Sunday night’s attack wasn’t a surprise to those of us who recognise that Islamophobia, in print or over the airwaves, can have real-world consequences. We now live in a world where prejudice and violence against Muslims is firmly established. In a relatively short space of time, we have gone from deliberating whether Islamophobia actually exists to scrambling to deal with its rapidly unfolding consequences. On Sunday night, on the 24th day of Ramadan, an Islamic centre in Finsbury Park was deliberately attacked as worshippers left a nearby mosque.feedback

This page is completely dedicated to what Nesrine Malik has to say. All of Nesrine Malik’s quotes are organized here by date and topic. The most recent quote attributed to Nesrine Malik came from an article called The far right wants to exploit the Westminster attack. London won’t let it: “There is something about the capital – a rich texture that rejects simplistic incendiary rhetoric. It’s not immune to hate, just too complex to be swayed by it. When the first news from the attack in Westminster began filtering through, I, along with many others, felt that familiar knot in our stomach – the kind one feels when braced for a predictable battle to separate fact from hysteria, plead for a sense of proportionality and entreat the hurt and the angry not to generalise. Despite being poised for the response, something felt different this time. Seemingly within minutes, former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was at the scene stirring hate while the shock was fresh. Nigel Farage was on the radio a few hours later, spewing predictable bile. Katie Hopkins published her usual MailOnline column, its tone sharpened to meet the high-octane moment, and was hosted on Fox News. Twitter abuse flooded towards Sadiq Khan, unleashed by Donald Trump Jr, who criticised London’s mayor hours after the attack for a perfectly reasonable and responsible claim he made six months ago that terrorist incidents were now part of the experience of living in a large city. We can only assume he singled out Khan because he was Muslim. All this happened in less than 24 hours after the attack.”.
