At least 54 people were sent to prison for hate speech last year, most of them for sharing and posting things online, which is almost five times as many as five years ago, according to the Moscow-based Sova group, which studies human rights, nationalism and xenophobia in Russia. The overall number of convictions for hate speech in Russia increased to 233 last year from 92 in 2010.

Faith-Based Violence and Bigotry

“I hear so many people say Isis has nothing to do with Islam — of course it has. They are not preaching Judaism. It might be wrong but what they are saying is an ideology based on some form of Islamic doctrine. They [Islamic State] are Muslims. That is a fact and we have to get our head around some very uncomfortable things.That is where the difficulty comes in for many journalists, because the vast majority of Muslims won’t agree with them.”

CFIC continues to monitor, document and condemn faith based violence and bigotry around the world.
