Zara Mohammed: For Scotish Muslims report on Islamophobia came as no surprise but the sheer scale of it still shocking

SHAFAQNA- Being born and raised in Glasgow, it wasn’t until I put my headscarf on that I felt “the cold edge of people” in what I had always considered a warm and friendly city. For many Muslims, an inquiry finding Islamophobia in Scotland is no surprise but the sheer scale of the problem had the power to shock. The report found that 83% of respondents had faced Islamophobia directly in education, employment, healthcare, security and media reporting. Much of this Islamophobia has been cited as happening on public transport.
