Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks (MAMA) is a secure and reliable service that allows people from across England to report any form of Anti-Muslim abuse. Reporting an incident to us is incredibly easy. You can do so via the Telephone, Email, SMS, Facebook or Twitter. Once we have your information secured, one of our trained case workers will call you to discuss the issue further and ensure we have all the details we require to record the incident accurately and offer you our support.
What is an anti-Muslim Incident?
TellMAMA classifies an anti-Muslim incident as any malicious act aimed at Muslims, their material property or Islamic organisations and where there is evidence that the act has anti-Muslim motivation or content, or that the victim was targeted because of their Muslim identity. This also includes incidents where the victim was perceived to be a Muslim.
Who is this service aimed at?
If Anti-Muslim hate incidents are ever to be stopped, it is essential that you report any crime committed against you or that you have witnessed take place on another person. By reporting attacks, you can help us create a rich picture of where more needs to be done to tackle Anti-Muslim hate incidents and crimes throughout the UK and this allows us to map the areas of the country in which Anti-Muslim incidents are most frequent. This will enable local police forces and social support services to target their resources most efficiently and effectively to ensure the community benefits from better safety and security. We will work together with communities to try to put an end to faith-based hate crime and provide the space for Muslims to speak freely and openly about anti-Muslim hate crime and gain the support they may need.
This service is for anyone who suffers, or has suffered, an incident as a result of their Muslim faith (or perceived Muslim faith). The MAMA project can also record incidents by Muslims against other Muslims, which may be due to intra-religious issues, and caseworkers will be able to log these incidents specifically so that a variety of issues can be mapped and support provided for different cases of anti-Muslim incidents.
