The United Kingdom has one of the highest populations of migrants. In 2013, it was found that in London 2.8 of the 8.63 million people were not born in the United Kingdom and were of other nationalities. But even with more than a fourth of the population not being British, foreigners in the United Kingdom still face considerable racism.
It was found that between 2010- 2014 the percentage of Islamaphobes jumped from 50% to 80%. With verbal and physical violence some Muslims living in the UK have had to go to extreme measures in order to prevent begin attacked. Men and women have shaved their beards or taken off their Hijab’s so as not be as noticed. Whether it be in school or in the workplace, hate crimes have risen by 18% in Britain in the last year. With the refugee crisis Islamaphobes are getting increasingly insecure about the rise in Muslim population across Europe. As a result, Prime Minister David Cameron released a separate recording system for religious crimes against Muslims and shared his distaste and anger at the concept of Islamaphobia.
