Published by the Forum Against Islamaphobia and Racism (FAIR), this report looks at the sentencing of young Muslim men incriminated in the July 2001 Oldham and Bradford troubles, which are serving as a further cause for alienation and disenchantment. The comparison is made with similar offences in Northern Ireland, and in the Brixton Riots, which prompted far milder punitive measures. The report focuses on aspects of Islamophobia in the criminal justice system and the political motivation behind the sentencing.
