This week Hyphen reporter Aisha Rimi, Deputy Head of Islam UK Centre and Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Wales Dr Azim Ahmed and human Rights lawyer Shoaib M Khan join host Reya El-Salahi to discuss tensions caused by the Israel-Palestine conflict in the UK. 

Our panel considers calls for a tightening of the law following chants of jihad at a London protest, fears for the future of interfaith relations and attempts to crackdown on support of Palestine in the UK. 

We also discuss the Labour party’s record-breaking double byelection win, and as new research recommends eating less red meat, we ask whether veganism is culturally acceptable for Muslims?

Plus, journalist Hannah Fearn investigates the “trad wife” influencers posting lifestyle videos to push Islamophobia.
