Stop the bullying of Muslim children!

Last summer Shukri Yahya, a 12 year old refugee from Somalia, drowned in a river in Bury.  Shukri moved to the UK two years ago with her family and had been badly bullied at school for months.  Despite several visits to the school the bullying continued and her family now believe it played a role in her death.

Schools should be a happy, safe environment for children.  But, with increasing islamophobia and racism across the world Muslim children are now suffering daily verbal and physical attacks.  Last year in the UK a record number of children were excluded for racist bullying and a recent report in California found that 40% of Muslim students had encountered some form of bullying at school.

No child should have to live in fear or face abuse in school.  In the UK we need to address the growing racist and Islamophobic bulling in our schools, colleges and universities.  There needs to be more funding and research into programs that actually make a difference.

Sign our petition to tell the government to do more to make sure that no other child has to suffer like Shukri.

I am signing, because I was bullied as a child and am disgusted that bullying of Muslims have increased due to Islamophobia and resulting with an end of a young child’s life! Action needs to be taken and all schools need to ensure that they have stricter rules and regulations on bullying. Also safeguard all children in schools, promote education on all regions to diminish Islamophobia!

I dont want to see discrimination in our country, especially bullying of small children. Islamophobia must be stopped.

I’m signing because i feel this is something not much being done against. Islamophobia must be dealt with so that communities can live in harmony.

I hate the thought that children are being bullied in school just because of their religion
