How it Feels to be a Young British Muslim in Britain

Dazed Magazine interviewed some young men and women asking them how it feels to be a young British Muslim in Britain.

They spoke of facing everyday Islamophobia and a number of them blamed the media for the rise in anti-Muslim sentiment. 22 year old Ruqaiya told Dazed:

The following short video shows young Brits speaking about their experiences:
