Dr Matthew Feldman, Professor of Contemporary History at Teeside University, appears in the broadcast piece in support of Shay’s campaign.
He says: ‘Anti-Muslim hate crime seems to be growing.
‘I think that people who care about building a fair Britain, that is based on individual rights, need to stand up and say that this is prejudicial. It is encouraging hatred and violence against Muslims in this country and it needs to stop.’
Shay adds: ‘If I make a difference on this issue it would feel like a dream come true.
‘I’d feel that I had accomplished what I set out to do and it would mean that telling my story had been worthwhile.
‘It would be the best thing I’ve done in my life.’
