Demand The Times refers itself for equalities watchdog inquiry
This report, “Unmasked,” chronicles three sensational investigations that exposed scandals and made headlines, written by one of Britain’s best-known journalists – Andrew Norfolk.
There was one problem - each story contained substantial inaccuracies.
It is notable that each of these error-strewn articles all vilify Muslims, and this looks very like a campaign targeted at the Muslim community.
Inaccuracies which have the effect of demonizing Muslims risk fueling prejudice. The Times has never properly been held to account. Enough is enough.
The Times MUST refer itself for an independent inquiry from the equalities watchdog, the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, to consider whether institutional Islamophobia exists at the title.
Write to the editor of The Times today to demand an independent inquiry into Islamophobia.
