Tell MAMA, Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks, will not have its government grant renewed after police and civil servants raised concerns about its methods. Ministers end funding for body that claimed ‘wave of attacks’ against Islam (212 by last weekend). Claims the media unquestioningly repeated. 57% of which were online, 16% were not verified and only 8% were physical attacks and none required medical treatment.
