    Muslims living in Britain have suffered more than 100 racial attacks since the terrorist atrocities in Paris, figures prepared for ministers reveal.

    A report to the Government’s working group on anti-Muslim hatred, seen by The Independent, shows a spike in Islamophobic hate crime of more than 300 per cent, to 115, in the week following the killings on November 13 in France.

    Most victims of the UK hate crimes were Muslim girls and women aged from 14 to 45 in traditional Islamic dress. The perpetrators were mainly white males aged from 15 to 35.

    Saw two girls in full black gear today having a good chat and a laugh as they were walking along and thought, "Brave lasses."

    I hope they didn't get any aggro.

    People just need an excuse to behave like the idiots they are in their heads. Normally, they'd think their bigoted thoughts and leave it at that but after Friday they feel they have an excuse to let it all out.

    The OP says attacks but the story is about reported incidents which might be hate crime to a help line. Overegged

    If the report says attacks who am I [or you to judge]?

    It also says racial attacks but there is nothing to suggest they were racial.

    I think that Malala is a great role model for all, not just as an example of what true Muslims are ....and I hope, the fact that she lives here now, evidence that most (I hope) people here are decent....
