Increased hate crime in Oslo last year

Increased hate of Muslims is an everyday problem for Muslims in Oslo who experience this on a daily basis. Despite increased efforts to combat hate crimes from public agencies as telling the figures in this report that hate crimes often occur.
Hate crime is very serious when this kind of offense is intended to create fear for the person or persons who are exposed. In Norway we have an open and inclusive society in which no one must be able to experience being a victim of such an offense. These efforts must be intensified before it provides a fertile ground to our community. We therefore urge all those who are exposed to such a thing to contact the police.
