An exodus of British Muslims is happening right under our noses – and still we’re asking whether Islamophobia exists
British Muslims – many who have lived here for generations – are packing up their belongings, parting ways with their loved ones, established careers and the country they were born in to move to somewhere safer. In recent years, the rates of hate crimes against religious minorities in the UK has rocketed, and for some, it has just become too dangerous to stay. There is an exodus happening in Britain, and no one has even blinked an eye.Contrary to the mainstream narrative that veiled and bearded people are flooding through our borders, a significant number of Muslims are leaving their homeland because of rising rates of targeted religious hate crimes. Despite this reality, harmful discourse in the media, politics and places of power continues to contribute to an increasingly hostile environment that is driving British Muslims away.

Charley Webb took to Instagram on Tuesday morning to detail her difficult night with poor little Ace, who the Emmerdale star revealed was feeling under the weather. Charley added that baby Ace had been "sick before bed" and "cried most of the night". Sharing a photo of Buster, one of her three sons, sprawled out on the floor in an adorable pirate's costume, the doting mum wrote: "8am life in the Wolfies. While I've had no sleep with Ace. He was sick before bed and cried most of the night. Poor little thing. Now feeling sorry for myself as well. It's going to be a long day." WATCH: Emmerdale in 60 secondsThe Debbie Dingle actress is known for her outspoken approach to motherhood, and often shares intimate family moments with her fans.

Charley emotionally explained: "So, Ace has stopped sleeping. What we used to do, is put him down between seven and half seven, and he would sleep for a good few hours before he would moan. Now, you put him down, he goes to sleep, and then within 15 minutes, 20 minutes, he's awake, crying. So, I'm wondering if anyone else has had this, because he's just not sleeping at all now through the night. He just wakes up constantly, and I am exhausted."Charley shares three sons with her husband and Emmerdale co-star Matthew Wolfenden: Buster, nine, Bowie, four, and little Ace, who is now seven months old. Earlier in December, Charley also told her followers that although her life may look perfect at times, the reality isn't always so glamorous. Admirably, she wrote on social media: "I think sometimes people aren’t honest enough about how full-on it is. With one, two, three, four, however many you’ve got. It’s ok to admit that being a Mum (or a Dad) is a really hard job. Harder than any other in my opinion. I often look at peoples Instagrams and think how perfect their life looks. It won’t be. Just like mine isn’t." Like this story? Sign up to our newsletter to get other stories like this delivered straight to your inbox.
