``British Muslim`` the term trending in UK for quite a long time. A British citizen is always a British irrespective of race,color,religion or sect. Using the term ``British Muslim`` by the media is derogatory, defamatory and discriminatory. The term itself indicates racism. Connecting one´s identity with faith system is not acceptable. Utilization of the term by the media after every mishap intensifies anti Muslim emotion; single out the community moreover triggers identity crisis among st young Muslim citizens. It further promotes events like ``Punish a Muslim Day.``
``British Muslim`` why do we need that label? Every British citizen should be encouraged to identify with Britishness and adopt singular ``British`` identity. In recent times racism against Muslims is more associated with cultural identity being Muslim rather than biological issue like complexion. The perception of not being accepted as a British runs very deep into the Muslim community in Britain. For the community already struggling with xenophobia and Islamophobia, the terminology like ``British Muslim`` poses more hardship.
In order to encourage solidarity and promote unity. All on and off line media should refrain from labeling any Muslim citizen of the country as a ``British Muslim`` rather prompt support to create awareness towards accepting singular British identity.
