What to do if you witness Islamophobic harassment?

Previously we have been witnessing that not only in UK but France’s increasing anti-Muslim rhetoric came to a head with the practice of burkini bans in more than 30 coastal areas, and armed police imposing the haphazard provincial order.

Recently a 20 year old, Marie-Shirine Yener who is an illustrator lives in Paris. She decided to create a guide for the people so that they can help those who are being harassed.

Here’s how you can help those people:

  • Go and talk to the person and ignore the attacker!

 

1

  • Just pick up any topic and and start discussing it.

2

  • Try to comfort the person by building a safe space and ignore the attacker as much as you can.

3

  • Continue the conversation until the attacker leaves and then walk with them to a safe spot.

4

We should respect every other religion. So whenever you see any harassment try to follow these guides. In this way you can make Muslims feel safe in other countries.
