Erik Bleichs research on the use and application of Islamophobia.
Added some conclusive work from Erik Bleich to denote how some scholars have direct definitions of Islamophobia and how some refrain from exactly describing it. Furthermore, how the parallel concepts of homophobia and xenophobia can assist in understanding Islamophobia. Syal01 (talk) 11:32, 20 November 2015 (UTC)
Recently came across a reference while researching Islamophobia that asserted that there is an actual industry created by those who consider themselves inside the right spectrum of American politics. the author states that however it is not an actual buyer seller industry but more of progressing the "agenda" type. This industry sells its agenda to the public through the collaboration between TV networks and political forces that share or become partners because of shared ideologies. This was added to display how vastly incorporated Islamophobia has become in media and how it is achieved. Syal01 (talk) 11:30, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Addition of the British Initiative to involve Muslim Communities after the London bombings
Added how some British Scholars believed that there is institutionalized Islamophobia since the British authorities asked the Muslim communities to be watchful and help the authorities prevent another terror attack. Michael Lavalette attests that many British scholars saw this act as Institutionalized Islamophobia since the authorities focused on Muslims in particular. Furthermore, having the Muslims take part in this initiative to prevent further attacks allowed them to display their love for Britain and negate the perceived threat from radicals and extremists from their own communities as such, they were likely to be the only group who could harm Britain. This was added to highlight the fact that certain steps taken by the government or the local authorities supplement the general public's possible overall distrust and concerns about a particular group or people.

//There are growing instances of Islamophobia in Hindi cinema, or Bollywood, in films such as Aamir (2008), New York (2009) and My Name is Khan (2010), which corresponds to a growing anti-minorities sentiment that followed the resurgence of the Hindu right.//
For real? These films are the very opposite of Islamophobic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:50, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
