Islamophobia in England – level 1

Islamophobia in England – level 1

14-04-2016 15:00

A Muslim woman is in a shop. The shop is in London. A person abuses her because she is wearing a veil. She films the situation. Many people watch the video on the Internet. The police are looking for her abuser.

The woman says that people often abuse her. She says that it is because of the media. The media shows Islam in only a bad way. She says that people should not get their information only from the media. She says that Muslims are normal people.

Difficult words: abuse (to say or do bad things to somebody and make him or her feel bad), veil (a piece of material which covers the face), should (if you should do something, it is good to do it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
