In accordance with Council Standing Order 25.1, notice is provided of the intention to suspend Council Standing Orders: 13.1, 15.6 b [i] and 15.6 b [iii] at the Full Council AGM meeting on Monday 20th of May for consideration of item 16. This is to allow Motion B to be jointly proposed by Cllr Ejiofor and Cllr Morris and to be jointly seconded by Cllr Chenot and Cllr Moyeed.

Motion B


The All Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims definition of Islamophobia


Proposer:       Cllr Ejiofor, Cllr Morris

Seconder:      Cllr Chenot, Cllr Moyeed

Haringey is home to people of many faith and ethnicities. Amongst them are an estimated 36,130 Muslims. This Council is proud of that diversity and believes Haringey’s Muslim residents are an important asset to the borough, have the same rights as all other groups and individuals, and are as worthy of the same respect as any other resident in, and outside of, Haringey.

Haringey has a strong history of fighting racism in all its forms, including adopting the IHRA definition of Anti-Semitism in 2017; and in its most recent Borough Plan, adopted earlier this year, pledging to “develop multi-agency approaches to tackle and reduce Hate Crime based on a zero tolerance approach”.

Recent terrorist attacks against the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand and the Finsbury Park Mosque in Islington have highlighted the severe Islamophobic attacks that Muslim communities around the world are faced with, and the Council wishes to offer its condolences to all those impacted by, and who lost loved ones in these attacks. The Council also acknowledges that Islamophobia is not a recent phenomenon and that we must do more as a society to tackle this rising form of intolerance and persecution.

In light of this, the Council expresses its gratitude for the work done by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims to produce a definition of Islamophobia.

Council notes:

1. That on the 27th November 2018, the All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims published a report entitled Islamophobia Defined: the inquiry into a working definition of Islamophobia. Amongst its conclusions are that:

a)    British Muslims “have a strong sense of belonging to Britain and of feeling part of British society” and are “more likely than the British public as a whole to say that their national identity is important to their sense of who they are”.

b)    Despite this, negative attitudes towards British Muslims are prevalent among their fellow citizens and that this contributes to multiple forms of discrimination including a “growing number of Islamophobic hate crimes”.

c)    That Islamophobia can negatively impact non-Muslims. For example, Sikhs have been targeted with abuse by people who misidentify them as Muslims.

d)    “adopting a definition of Islamophobia will demonstrate to  ...  view the full agenda text for item 17.
