Islamophobia is the unfounded or disproportionate fear and/or hatred of Islam or Muslims (or people perceived to be Muslim), leading to violence and systemic discrimination. Islamophobia is gendered and intersects with other systems of racism. The anti-Muslim terrorist attack on the Afzaal family in London, Ontario on June 6, 2021, underscores the urgent need to combat Islamophobia and all forms of racism in Canada.
