According to acting UK metropolitan police chief Craig Mackey, there was an increase in Islamophobic hate crime (mainly name-calling, no dead Muslims) the day after the recent Westminster attack by a Muslim terrorist which killed five and injured many.
Daily Telegraph Mackey reported the increase was relatively small:
“We saw a slight uplift in what we call Islamophobic incidents the day after the event but small and far smaller than we have seen in previous events,” he said.
