People online are expressing support for Muslims after letters were sent urging violence against them on 3 April, so-called "Punish a Muslim Day".

Community leaders in the UK are encouraging Muslims not to change their behaviour because of scaremongering tactics.

#PunishAMuslimDay and counter-hashtag #LoveAMuslimDay, as well as #WeStandTogether, are trending with more than 42,000 tweets sent, many urging Muslims to ignore the threats.

Rattled by reports of increased hate crime in the UK and a video currently circulating online of a Muslim woman being attacked in an American hospital, some people expressed anxiety online about their personal safety.

"We believe that Muslim communities have reacted with tolerance," director Iman Atta said.
