Islamophobia, the hatred for and fear of Islam and Muslims, manifests itself physically, politically, culturally and linguistically, besides in other forms. From the linguistic perspective, many words have been coined to perpetuate prejudices against Muslims and Islam. Islam and Muslims are often found in collocational use in the most derogatory and irresponsible way.
