Under The Same Roof: Islamophobia In Bristol


We team up with BFI Film Academy to look at the rise of Islamophobia and its impact on Bristol’s Muslim community.

With Islamophobia on the rise, we look at its impact on Muslims in Bristol. We talk to Humaira, her father Ashraf, Sham and the mullah of the new mosque in Stokes Croft, looking at how the media is stirring up Islamophobia and how this is manifesting in Bristol.
