The All Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims recently concluded a report into a working definition of Islamophobia. The definition agreed in the report was considered by the NEC and adopted at its meeting in June.

As with the statement on anti-Semitism adopted in 2018, this NEC statement will support the Party’s rules and their interpretation.

Islamophobia is rooted in racism and is a type of racism that targets expressions of Muslimness or perceived Muslimness.
