“From Khan’s own links to the very epistemology of hate she has employed in the report to target Muslims, the credibility of HnH has come into serious question. The broken PREVENT security apparatus has been used control and shape Muslim discourse insidiously beneath shoddy and hypocritical concerns of social cohesion.
In the coming pieces the result of employing a systemically problematic and demonising framework will be highlighted and commented upon. This will also include exposing misleading and/or distorted statements and cases designed to exaggerate the perception of a threat.”
The last piece analysing Hope not Hate’s (HnH) report State of Hate 2017, engaged the question of Sara Khan’s circles of influence. Her links to notorious members of the counter-Jihad movement would, at the very least, cast doubt on what was produced in the report. One of the structural flaws noted in my last piece was that Khan’s operating framework was the highly discredited PREVENT policy. The policy is based on neoconservative assumptions and promoted by those who intermingle with the worst of the far-right counter-Jihad movements.
This piece will take an epistemological account of Khan’s writing and elaborate the way in which destructive neoconservative assumptions permeate it, leading to the perpetuation of structural prejudice against the Muslim minority and control of Muslim discourse.
