Increased immigration and the presence of Muslims in multicultural cultures have given rise to ideas like "Islamophobia," which are then used to justify actions taken by non-Muslims against Muslims in the Diaspora. Islamophobia manifests in various ways, where traditional West-Christian beliefs and the Occident vs. the Orient tensions are brought to the fore. This interaction establishes norms favouring the majority against minorities, along with inclusion, exclusion, and hegemony. As a result, power systems have been established that influence Muslims' access to religious freedom. Thus, this study demonstrates a deeper understanding of Islamophobia, including its components, challenges, and impacts, in addition to analysing the approaches and initiatives that may be taken to stop and eradicate Islamophobia. After departing from the theoretical components of Islamophobia, the study moves on to extensive interviews with Islamic scholars and theoretical investigation. The research shows that Islamophobia is pervasive in contemporary mixed society and ethnic interactions. Therefore, it must be acknowledged as a significant issue that requires national and global attention. As a result, the growth of inter-ethnic and inter-religious conflict and the conflict of human civilizations would rather be a forgotten past than a present-day reality.
