Selin ATAY-TDO-While Britain two days ahead of an early general election, the Conservative Party has been described as a "hotbed" of anti-Islam rhetoric, and the party leadership is unwilling to open an independent Islamophobia inquiry despite repeated calls.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's party has long been the target of accusations of Islamophobia. These accusations were exacerbated by Johnson becoming prime minister, who compared Muslim women who wear burqa to "letterboxes" and "bank robbers," So all in all he said that Boris Johnson argued that Islamophobia is a 'natural reaction' to Islam and that 'Islam is the problem'.
Although the conservatives ignore the existence of the problem, what has happened only in the past year has clearly revealed the extent to which Islamophobia is compatible with the party.
In April, Muslims were identified as" people who wear garbage bags, "sharing messages calling for" Islam to be banned "and the Koran to be recognized as a" book of evil." A survey by a research company in June revealed that a majority of Conservative Party members thought Islam was contrary to the "British way of life."
In November, 15 current and 10 former senior members were found in posts shared from their social media accounts, calling for mosques to be banned and calling Muslims "barbarians" or "enemies inside." Finally, one of the party's candidates, former BBC reporter Linden Kemkaran, retweeted Twitter messages targeting the Labour Party on December 5, calling it a "nasty culture" about Islam.
Although the party has announced that some of the complainants have had their membership suspended and an investigation is under way, no one has yet been expelled. The administration has also not opened an independent Islamophobia inquiry in the party despite calls to nominate names accused of anti-Islamism.
