British Muslim convert 'reported to authorities by college'

More than half of all Muslims in the UK believe government policies have had a negative impact on their lives, according to a new report.

A study by the Islamic Human Rights Commission found many Muslims feel they have been treated with suspicion and mistrust.

The report's authors say the government's security and anti-extremism measures, among other policies, have fuelled discrimination against Muslims in Britain.

Iman, 19, is a white Muslim convert. Her college suspected she may have been radicalised and reported her under the government's counter-extremism policy, Prevent.
