Islamophobia - Do Two Wrongs Make a Right?
“Islamophobia” and “Islamic radicalism” are two sides of the same coin. While Islamophobia refers to fear of, hatred and discrimination towards Islam and Muslims, Islamic radicalism is associated with acts of violence and terrorism committed in the name of religion. It is not easy to determine whether one leads to the other, but there is clearly a connection between the two.
Is either justified?Is the problem merely about labelling? Do these labels reflect a hard truth? Do these questions warrant debate?
