Islamophobia in England – level 2
A person abused a Muslim woman in a shop in London just because she was wearing a veil.
She says that she often faces Islamophobia, and she filmed this one situation. People viewed the video well over 100,000 times on the Internet. Police are now looking for her abuser.
The woman says that the media shows Islam in a negative one-sided way. The media should be more careful about what they show because they fuel Islamophobia. If people took their information from people like her and not just the media, then they would understand that Muslims are normal people.
Difficult words: abuse (to say or do bad things to somebody and make him or her feel uncomfortable), veil (a piece of material which covers the face), fuel verb (to power, to make happen).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
